Solid expandable technology improves refracture diversion ///

Solid expandable ReFrac liners are changing the perception of diversion utilized in refracturing operations. Isolating old perforations, and accessing new reservoir rock and reserves, is being done with mechanical diversion, providing confidence that may be unattainable with alternate diversion methods presently available. There had been a perception that solid expandable tubulars are utilized in openhole applications only, or maybe as a stretch, to repair a damaged casing string in a cased-hole application. In reality, solid expandable tubulars are also being used in completion applications—first to enhance present completions utilizing ESeal ReFrac (RF) solid expandable liners, and second to repair completions (new and mature) that have experienced mechanical failure.
