Abstract

A mono-diameter wellbore casing is formed by radially expanding a first tubular liner off of a mandrel into contact with a second tubular liner. The first and second tubular liners are positioned within the wellbore in an overlapping relationship. The overlapping portions of the tubular liners include thin wall portions with compressible annular members that are expanded into contact with each other.

Claims (7)

1. A wellbore casing, comprising:
a first tubular member; and a second tubular member coupled to the first tubular member in an overlapping relationship;
wherein the inner diameter of the first tubular member is substantially equal to the inner diameter of the second tubular member.
2. A wellbore casing, comprising:
a tubular member including at least one thin wall section and a thick wall section; and a compressible annular member coupled to each thin wall section.
3. A method of creating a casing in a borehole located in a subterranean formation, comprising:
supporting a tubular liner and a mandrel in the borehole using a support member;
injecting fluidic material into the borehole;
pressurizing an interior region of the mandrel;
displacing a portion of the mandrel relative to the support member; and radially expanding the tubular liner.
4. A wellbore casing, comprising:
a first tubular member having a first inside diameter; and a second tubular member having a second inside diameter substantially equal to the first inside diameter coupled to the first tubular member in an overlapping relationship;
wherein the first and second tubular members are coupled by the process of deforming a portion of the second tubular member into contact with a portion of the first tubular member.
5. An apparatus for expanding a tubular member, comprising:
a support member including a fluid passage;
a mandrel movably coupled to the support member including an expansion cone;
at least one pressure chamber defined by and positioned between the support member and mandrel fluidicly coupled to the first fluid passage; and one or more releasable supports coupled to the support member adapted to support the tubular member.
6. An apparatus, comprising:
one or more solid tubular members, each solid tubular member including one or more external seals;
one or more slotted tubular members coupled to the solid tubular members; and a shoe coupled to one of the slotted tubular members.
7. A method of joining a second tubular member to a first tubular member, the first tubular member having an inner diameter greater than an outer diameter of the second tubular member, comprising:
positioning a mandrel within an interior region of the second tubular member;
pressurizing a portion of the interior region of the mandrel;
displacing the mandrel relative to the second tubular member; and extruding at least a portion of the second tubular member off of the mandrel into engagement with the first tubular member.
