Solid Expandable Tubulars

1- Casing Straddle Provide Gas Tight Solution

Challenge:

A gas well is producing gas with high percentage of sour gas, and integrity of the 7’’ base casing is lost due to corrosion from the sour gas. The leaking section of the wellbore need to repair while keep gas tight performance.

Solution:

Special designed casing straddle with expandable hangers on the top and bottom end while keep the corrosion resistance casing in the middle part, premium connection was used in the whole system, thus the whole system possesses gas tight integrity.

Added Value:

Long term solution for hazardous down hole environment

Customized design to meet special requirement

2- Drilling Liner to Provide Bigger Production Conduit

Challenge:

The operation is sidetracking from 7’’ 29# base casing, and prefer to have 5-1/2’’ minimum open size to optimize production conduit. Following conventional method, after running 5-1/2’’ liner in the sidetrack section, then the next open hole size can only by ~4-1/2’’, which will jeopardize the production rate.

Solution:

Use 5-1/2’’ expandable system to case off the sidetrack section form the 7’’ base casing, and the 5-1/2’’ expandable will provide 5-1/2’’ drift ID, which will get the best fluid conduit down hole and achieved the required production rate.

Added Value:

Provide bigger conduit down hole Achieve maximum production rate

3- Drilling Liner to Provide Bigger Production Conduit

Challenge:

The producer has old perforation that is no longer required due to high water cut, need to isolate the old perforation permanently in the 5-1/2’’ base casing while keep maximum wellbore ID.

Solution:

Use 4-1/4’’ expandable system as a casing patch to isolate the old perforation, avoided un-reliable cement squeeze operation or fragile corrugated pipe system.

Added Value:

Provide bigger wellbore ID after installation

One-time permanent solutio

4- Repair Damaged Section Caused by Drilling Operation

Challenge:

The 9-5/8 base casing of a new well was worn out by the long 8-1/2’’ drilling operation, a caliper log showed the worn out section only have 50-60% of the wall thickness left, this section need to be reinforced before the well put into production.

Solution:

After 7’’ production casing was run, the worn out section was patched off with a 7-5/8 x 9-5/8’’ casing patch, and the well was put into production without HSE concerns.

Added Value:

Save the cost of the well

Provide long term solution
