Abstract

See full text

Method of completing an uncased section (10) of a borehole (1) in an underground formation (2) comprising the steps of: (a) placing at a predetermined position in the borehole (1) a slotted liner (11) provided with overlapping longitudinal slots (12); (b) fixing the upper end of the slotted liner (11); and (c) moving upwardly through the slotted liner (11) an upwardly tapering expansion mandrel (15) having a largest diameter which is larger than the inner diameter of the slotted liner (11).
