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.
Install a high-collapse SET® expandable liner to case off the trouble zone.
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.
Install a SET® Openhole solid expandable system fitted with injection-moulded composite standoff blades.
Optimize project economics, well design and drilling efficiency with application of SET solid expandable technology.
- Operator was experiencing trouble formation caused by narrow pore pressure/fracture gradient window which caused casing to be set higher than planned.
- Operator decided that expandables were the way to go.
- All of the customer's operating objectives were met.
An operator needed to overcome drilling obstacles in their Gulf of Mexico, HPHT well.
Three SET® Systems were installed in this well and enabled the operator to reach the planned target.
