We are passionate about what we do and proud of the value we deliver.
Our specialist team is committed to solving problems and cleverly inventing improved well integrity solutions to minimise risk, provide assurance as well as reduce time, cost and environmental impact.
HydraWell is leading the way to change the P&A game, challenge the norm and deliver positive industry results. Your challenge is our progress – we genuinely want to help.
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.
On the UKCS a well has dual annuli pressure, and HydraWell efficiently cures both annuli at the same time with Jet-washing PWC®. More than a week of rig time is saved with this operation!
AkerBP contacted us and wanted a novel approach to test their formation prior to abandoning the well bore. We tested their formation and set the cement plug all in one run.
HydraWell was asked to support a four well abandonment campaign for suspended subsea production gas wells. A key challenge was to ensure a quick turnaround from a planning perspective.
A collaboration with the client results in optimised PWC® operational parameters by the use of CFD, and delivers a well barrier in record time with HydraHemera™.
After spending up to 80 days placing barriers in dual annuli this operator wanted to lower its cost, operational time and risk. HydraWell saves the day withthe HydraHemera™ PWC® System!
Wells in the Continental Europe produce tons of salt every year. What happens to a salt well when it has ceased production? Hydrawell plug the well with its PWC technology!
A heavy wall casing inside another casing, and the only desire is to perforate the innermost casing. HydraWell teams up with a mechanical perforation company to solve the problem!
Five subsea wells on the UKCS are up for abandonment. HydraWell shows how efficient its HydraHemera™ jet-washing PWC® is and saves 25 rig days on this campaign.
An old abandoned gas well require a proper abandonment technique. HydraWell comes to the rescue with its HydraHemera™ PWC® System and successfully restores the well integrity.
A casing cement job goes on losses and you are left with a well not in compliance with regulations. You have two choices to salvage the well;
i) A costly re-sidetrack of the well, or
ii) HydraHemera™ PWC® from HydraWell.
Offshore Malaysia several wells have issues with a shallow leak.
HydraWell teams up with a mechanical perforator and and remediates the wellbores.
