Corrosion and erosion of the perforations will increase their size and reduce the internal and external pressure rating of the patch. Bear in mind that not making a scraper run has its risks as well. Re-run the drift to assure that the restriction is removed. DATE Discussion and Concerns Associated with Specific Applications Collar Leaks The HOMCO Internal Steel Liner Casing Patch is excellent for sealing collar leaks.com. Milled Windows or Wear in Doglegs Milled windows or wear holes in doglegs are often quite large and their size or shape is difficult to determine. Refer to the pressure rating charts in the Test the Patch – Pressure Capacity Chart section. an accurate description of the leak is required. if the window or dogleg wear is very large. there may be some concern about sticking the scraper.weatherford. consider using the lowest pressure rating for that size casing. . available on request or at www. The internal pressure rating will typically be the casing limit (as shown in the Test the Patch – Pressure Capacity Chart section) unless the connection is severely washed out. Therefore. Internal Steel Casing Patch Customer Handbook 5 Weatherford products and services are subject to the Company’s standard terms and conditions. Unless noted otherwise. Perforations Undesired perforations. trademarks and service marks herein are the property of Weatherford. The size of the perforations will dictate the pressure rating of the patch. such as test zones or low pay zones. it is important to consider future pressure requirements of the patch. Leaks caused by rod wear of tubing or casing in doglegs can be patched. If this edge is large enough it could interfere with the setting of the patch. Specifications are subject to change without notice. A casing scraper run is recommended before setting a patch to clean the casing in the patch area.INDEX NO. Split Casing When patching split casing. No special preparation is required other than a casing scraper and drift runs. Foreign material on the casing wall. To determine approximate pressure ratings. However. If an accurate description is not obtained. PN. However. This is another good reason for the drift run or mill run described above. possibly resulting in being stuck in the hole (see Stuck in the Hole) with the patch partially set. it is extremely important to make an API drift run. while setting the patch. if a rod pump is used after patching. If the drift passes freely. (See Pressure Capacity Chart) A milled window may have a rolled-in edge at the bottom. or. a tapered mill or string mill can be run to remove the restriction. If the split was caused by excessive pressure. Doglegs pose a similar situation. Severe doglegs may not allow the rigid unset patch and tools to pass. it is strongly recommended that a trip be made with flush joint washpipe or drill collars longer than the patch assembly and with an OD larger than the unset patch. For more information contact an authorized Weatherford representative. With this in mind. This will assure the patch and setting equipment will pass through the dogleg. If the drift will not pass. more likely. if large enough. The reason is a split will have a tendency to grow over time. can prevent setting the full length of patch resulting in a fishing job. there should be no problems in setting the patch. Also the slight ID restriction (typically 0.300 inch) usually has little effect on production of pay zones below. Patches can be milled out or perforated to re-open a zone. A 20-foot patch can easily be placed across the leaking collar. it is strongly recommended that the patch cover the full length of the joint plus 6-to-8 feet overlap on each end. the rods will eventually wear through the patch. can be sealed off with an Internal Steel Liner Casing Patch.

Water Encroachment or Coning Dramatic improvements in production have been realized in the North Sea using the casing patch to block off the lower portion of long production zones affected by water encroachment and coning. the casing may be prone to splitting. Estimating the proper position of the top of the patch in water encroachment applications can be determined by a number of methods.com.
