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