09/03/2007

Mitigate shale formations, in which loss of returns and sticking are common, by combining SET® expandable tubulars with sidetracking operations in order to reach additional reserves with optimized hole size.

Get back on planned drilling program and finish the well with an adequate hole size to evaluate potential production zones at TD.

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...

Isolate the trouble zone while conserving hole size by planning solid expandable technology into the well design; optimize wellbore trajectory and reduce risk in sidetrack drilling operations.

10/15/2008

Optimize project economics, well design and drilling efficiency with application of SET solid expandable technology.

09/24/2009

Enable offshore exploratory well to reach total depth (TD) with optimal hole size after base casing was set higher than expected.

The customer was sidetracking the well, and unable to run their 16-inch liner. The 13-5/8 inch and 11-3/4 inch casing were both set high, which would compromise the originally planned 8-1/2 inch hole size.

 

The operator selected a 9-5/8 x 11-3/4 in. SET®...

In 2009, a global super-major operating out of Borneo experienced problems with a well it was running from a drillship in over 5,000 feet of water off of the Sarawakan coast. An initial exploration well working a straight hole in a shale formation, the operator encountered an unstable...

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...
