SPECIAL REPORT: Hot-wet downhole conditions affect composite selection

09/10/2007
Advanced fiber-reinforced polymer composites offer new options for working on and completing deep wells that have high temperatures and pressures (HT-HP) and produce corrosive fluids, although proper material selection requires an understanding of the composite’s hot-wet thermomechanical behavior.Companies can include composites in drilling, logging, completion, production, and workover. Completions and workovers often require tools set temporarily in a wellbore that need to be made from easily drilled or milled out materials. Offshore deepwater extended-reach drilling and completions require materials for downhole tubular components and equipment that are lightweight and fatigue-re...
