A method of extracting fluids from a zone (3325) in a well involves positioning primary solid tubulars (3335) in the well and coupling them to a well casing (3310). Slotted tubulars (3345) are positioned to traverse the producing zone (3325) and coupled to the solid tubulars (3335) The producing zon ...

A mono-diameter wellbore casing (100) is formed by radially expanding a first tubular liner (210) off a mandrel (505) into contact with a second tubular liner (115). The first (210) and second (115) tubulars liners are positioned in the wellbore in an overlapping relationship and the first (210) and ...
