5-1/2 x 7-5/8 Powerscrew Assembly

Seminole Services has commercialized a second Powerscrew Liner System.  Sized to set inside 7-5/8 intermediate casing, our next stretch formed liner hanger will provide more opportunities for operators in applications requiring 5in. or 5-1/2in. liners.  Driven by market demand, the new system has incorporated several improvements which allow for quicker assembly, better rig handling, and more versatility in sizing different intermediate casing weights.  The tool has been rigorously tested and qualified under ISO 14310 (API 11D1) with a V0 rating. Oiltool Engineering Services performed the third party testing service at their laboratory in Willis, TX .

The Journal of Petroleum Technology publishes “Metal-Formed Liner Hanger Avoids High-Setting-Pressure Requirements”

The Society of Petroleum Engineers’ premier monthly magazine, JPT, will publish details on the Powerscrew in their “Young Technology Showcase” feature.  The article discusses the general background of liner hanger development, the novel features of the Powerscrew Liner system, and specific tasks that were necessary for the tools commercialization.  To read the paper, click  JPT_YoungTechnology_Jan16

Seminole Services installs first Powerscrew Liner System!

Catoosa Well, Lucy 6G; Hallet OK….Seminole Services successfully installed a 7-5/8 39lb liner inside a 9-5/8 32.3lb intermediate casing string after reaming the liner to total depth.  A rotating cement head was utilized during the job to better facilitate the cementing operation.  The liner top was forged downhole through the use of a unique helical stretch forming technique that utilizes torsional energy from the top drive.  With a drop in torque, the liner top was fully integrated into the 9-5/8 casing and the setting tool retrieved from the well.  A perfect first run!
