Come and attend our abstract entitled
REPAIRING INJECTION PORTS AND CASING BEFORE FRACING USING EXPANDABLE STAINLESS STEEL PATCHES
In 2010 a new technology was launched in North America to expand stainless steel patches using a high pressure inflatable packer. This has now become a regular service, both for perforation shut-off and casing repair. The versatility of the technology has also enabled it to be used to seal leaking cementors and frac ports, with the unique ability of creating a high pressure resistant inner lining and yet enabling the passage of 3 ½ in balls to activate the ports below.
This paper will describe rapidly how the technology works and follow up on the progress made since last year. It will present the testing process to validate use at pressures up to 10,000 psi, and describe the first field operations. It will conclude by presenting the development of possible future applications of expandable stainless steel for improving completions.
We look forward to seeing you on booth #61.
