Ongoing challenges are caused by incomplete data, deterioration in the integrity, and condition of the construction components
Side tracking effectively prevents any future re-entry into the original, primary, wellbore.
It is good practice to have at least two barriers between the hydrocarbon bearing formation and the environment. However, the barriers can often be compromised.
When the logging image shows neither cement, nor creeping formation, the wellbore/annulus must be remediated.
A well offshore UK has reached planned TD, but failed several contingency cement jobs. The casing sits at 81 degrees and HydraWell runs their HydraHemera jetting technology to
save the well
This client had previously installed four barriers with the conventional section milling that took more than 40 days. A close collaboration between the client and HydraWell was awarded with four plugs installed in just 8.8 days.
A major operator are performing P&A operations from a HWU. PWC® from HydraWell saves significant time and cost compared to section milling.
"I have been working with Hydrawell for the past 7 years and I have always been impressed by the forward-thinking nature of this company, the competency and dedication of its people, both onshore and offshore, the reliability of its tools and the quality of the work it performs days in and days out. This company inspires confidence"
"AkerBP used HydraWell’s Hydrahemera jetting PWC tool throughout the entire 4-year P&A campaign on Valhall DP, and with great success. Thanks to learnings kindly shared by ConocoPhillips, which pioneered the use of this technique, and to a close collaboration with Hydrawell, the time to restore barriers in a critical part of the overburden on Valhall dropped from 12 days down to 2.1, resulting in significant time and money savings."
"Impressed by their forward thinking nature"
"I am very pleased with the simplicity of the HydraHemera™ PWC® operation"
"The most robust plugging method I have ever seen"
"HydraWell´s HydraHemera™ jet-washing PWC® method saved us $15m in rig time over four wells"
"HydraWell´s PWC® technology reduced our well abandonments from 12 to 2.1 days!"
Historically, three basic methods have been used to achieve an annular barrier. Each carries the risk of technical failure or of significant delays and increased cost beyond the forecast.
