Every day we deliver effective well barrier solutions for leak prevention. It’s what we do best.
Established in 2008, HydraWell recognised it was time for a new approach to Well Integrity. Traditional methods were cumbersome, and the industry was crying out for something unique. Something quicker, slicker and safer.
Since then, our highly specialist and experienced team has pushed boundaries to discover new effective ways of working and our range of innovations have been developed from listening closely to clients’ challenges and downhole problems. We continue to identify and develop systems to solve these challenges, always seeking improved, more cost effective and safer approaches to well performance and decommissioning.
HydraWell is not only focused on relentlessly engineering improved solutions to replace traditional downhole techniques that introduce HSEQ risk to well integrity operations. We are also committed to reducing environmental impact through the use of our ingenious technologies.
We have a deeper sense of responsibility that is beyond delivering P&A operations.
Our vision is to continue improving and evolving our solutions, operations and approach so we adapt for the future. Using our expertise, we accelerate positive change in the energy sector to help improve the world we all live in.
We lead through invention to discover a new possible.

A subsea well which was to be abandoned, had a live annulus which required to be isolated before the full abandonment could be safely completed. Isolation had to be achieved without damaging the external casing.
Five wells needed to be plugged in connection with shutdown of an abandoned platform gas field on the UKCS. The quality of the existing annular cement at the barrier locations was either unknown or believed to be poor.
HydraWell was asked to support the operator in a four well abandonment campaign for suspended subsea production gas wells at 115 metres water depth. A key challenge was to ensure a quick turnaround from a planning perspective, in readiness for the offshore operations.
