HOUSTON -- Enventure Global Technology has expanded three consecutive liners to a uniform inside diameter using MonoDiameter technology in a field appraisal well.
The drilling program included the expansion of three consecutive liners to a uniform 10.4 in. (26.4 cm) ID.
After product research and development, Enventure commissioned a well to use its MonoDiameter technology. The company was operator in the appraisal well and exposed the single-diameter SET systems to real-life well conditions.
Conventional SET technology decreases the tapering effect of wellbore casing designs, but MonoDiameter eliminates it, says Enventure.
The telescoping effect of traditional casing has been a barrier to economics.
"MonoDiameter is no longer a concept, it's a reality," says Rick Fontova, Enventure senior vice president. "This industry breakthrough helps address operators' demands for advanced well construction solutions."
"This is a significant achievement for the industry," said Rob McKee, technology manager for Enventure. "With the use of MonoDiameter, operators will have more control over liner lengths, enabling them to drill wells deeper with optimum hole size for production."
