Case Studies

Case Study

HydraHemera™ PWC® with a mechanical perforator tool


A platform 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.

Case Study

PWC® jetting technology delivers four barriers in record breaking time

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.

Case Study
