Enventure installs nearly 6,000 ft of expandable liner in the Middle East

Posted on 20 January 2014

Enventure has announced a world record for the longest  5 ½-in. SET solid expandable cased-hole liner. The 5,730-ft liner was installed in a power water injector well in the Middle East to repair a corroded 7-in. liner. To minimize the reduction of the well’s internal diameter (ID), the operator cleaned out the corroded 7-in. liner and ran a 5 1/2-in. SET liner. The installation provided an ID of 5.570 in., which allows higher injection rates with less friction loss than a conventional scab liner.

“As a result of our previous success in the Middle East, Enventure was able to provide the best solution for this well in the most timely and cost-efficient manner,” said Stacey Andrews, senior operations manager, Eastern Hemisphere, for Enventure. “We are pleased to have achieved another world record for our SET solid expandable technology and will continue to innovate new technology that helps our clients meet their goals.”

The installation was conducted with zero recordable safety incidents, according to the company.
