Install larger, corrosion-resistant production conduit.
Challenge: Design and implement a field-level remediation plan using cased-hole SET® Solid Expandable Tubular technology to facilitate production restoration.
Drill through 200 feet of depleted sands, add a casing point and reach the pay target (measured depth between 11,000 to 13,000 feet) with adequate hole size while maintaining the smallest upper wellbore possible.
Isolate multiple zones while maximizing diameter by installing a SET Open-hole Liner with swellable elastomers. The maximum diameter would help reduce fluid friction during high-rate fracturing operations.
Accurately install SET® Openhole Clad solid expandable systems featuring water-sensitive swelling elastomer seals. The installation further proved SET® technology applied for the first time a year earlier in another field.
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...
