The MonoDiameter(TM) field appraisal well included the successful expansion of three consecutive liners achieving a uniform 10.4 in. ID. While conventional SETŪ technology significantly decreases the tapering effect of well bore casing designs, MonoDiameter(TM) eliminates it altogether. "MonoDiameter(TM) is no longer a concept, it's a reality," said Rick Fontova, Enventure Senior Vice President. "This industry breakthrough helps address operators' demands for advanced well construction solutions."
The telescoping effect of traditional casing has been a barrier to viable economics on potentially significant reservoir finds. After extensive research and development, Enventure commissioned a new well to be drilled using its MonoDiameter(TM) technology suite. The company served as the operator in the appraisal well and exposed the single-diameter SETŪ systems to real-life well conditions.
"This is a significant achievement for the industry," said Rob McKee, Technology Manager for Enventure. "With the use of MonoDiameter(TM), operators will have more control over liner lengths, enabling them to drill wells deeper with optimum hole size for production."
