Two challenges facing operators as the energy industry moves into the next century are accessing of new reservoirs that currently cannot be reached economically and maintaining profitable production from older fields. Recent advances in one of the oldest and most fundamental areas of exploration...

Expandable-tubular technology involves a process that expands casing in oil wells drilled in especially challenging environments, such as deepwater. Until now, operators have had to use progressively smallerdiameter pipe as a well was drilled deeper; but expandable-tubular goods are designed for...

As the oil and gas industry has matured, three broadreaching and long-standing issues that affect virtually every well have assumed heightened importance: conservation of hole size, hydraulic isolation of selected zones, and maximization of well life. All of these issues involve one of the...

For years, the reduction of tubular inside diameter (ID), or “telescoping effect,” limited the exploration and production of oil and gas. Using conventional technology, operators faced significant loss of ID in the course of the normal drilling process, during reentry and deepening of existing...

Solid expandable tubular technology presents an opportunity to significantly boost the production capacity of wells by increasing the size of the completion. As such, it offers an economically attractive and environmentally friendly option to breathe new life into gas fields. It is flexible in...

SET technology is the result of a cold-working process that permanently deforms the pipe without any additional heat. The procedure inherent to expanding tubulars takes the steel beyond its elastic limit into the plastic region of the stress-strain curve, while remaining safely below ultimate...

Larger SET® Systems were designed to mitigate the risks inherent in drilling complex and exploratory wells.

Larger solid expandable systems are planned as a basis-of-design (BOD) in the upper portion of the wellbore. This enables operators to maintain internal diameter (ID) early in the...
