An major operator received one of the first post-Macondo permits to continue drilling an exploratory well in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico using subsea BOP's.
The operator needed to achieve zonal isolation across shallow hydrocarbon-bearing sands and to reduce ECD's during cementing...
Leverage information gained from the first well in the development project and install Solid Expandable Tubular (SET®) systems to the subsequent wells to save casing points and preserve hole size while drilling through shale formations and depleted zones.
While drilling an exploration well, an Operator encountered a narrow pore pressure/fracture gradient window that required using more casing strings than planned.
Making Enventure's Solid Expandables a part of the drilling plan enabled deep-water operators in the Mississippi Canyon to cut their previous drilling time from 140 days to just 48. Installing over 2700 feet of Solid Expandable liners running at depths up to 4100 feet allowed...
