Enventure Installs 100th Solid Expandable Tubular System

Enventure Global Technology has successfully installed its 100th Solid Expandable Tubular System in an El Paso Production well in the East Cameron field, Gulf of Mexico.

"This is an important milestone that the entire Enventure team has been working toward during the three years since our first installation," said Mike Teers, chief operations officer, Enventure Global Technology. "With 100 Solid Expandable Systems installed in major oil basins over the globe, Expandable Technology is becoming an integral part of well plans for more than 35 operators in the oil and gas industry."

The 401-ft Openhole Liner System (OHL(TM)), installed in a well in the East Cameron field, was expanded in 9 5/8-in. 53.50 ppf base casing. Combined mechanical and hydraulic forces, averaging 150,000 lbs and 3,600 psi respectively, expanded the pipe by 11.6%. Post-expansion ID of the 7 5/8-in. 29.70 ppf liner was 7.674 in. (compared to a pre-expansion diameter of 6.875 in.), while post-expansion burst and collapse were estimated at 5,990 psi and 2,700 psi, respectively. Overall liner length was reduced from 401 feet to 385 feet as a natural result of the expansion process.

To date, Enventure has performed 106 installations and expanded more than 105,000 feet of pipe and 2,700 connections for 35 operators globally. Enventure Global Technology, L.L.C., the world's leading provider of solid expandable tubular solutions, is a limited liability company organized and owned by Halliburton Energy Services Inc. and Shell Technology Ventures Inc.
