BiSN Opens New Manufacturing Facility in Perth to Expand Global Operations

Operational capacity in Asia-Pacific significantly enhanced

BiSN, a leading provider of permanent downhole sealing solutions, has opened a new manufacturing facility in Perth, Western Australia to better serve operators in the region. The facility will radically increase the operational capacity for BiSN in the Asia-Pacific region, creating several local jobs.

Located in Perth, the new facility represents a substantial investment in infrastructure and talent. BiSN’s expansion into Australia is driven by the growing demand for Wel-lok™ technology in the region, which provides cost-effective, reliable, and environmentally friendly sealing solutions for the oil and gas industry. 

“The opening of this facility is another step in BiSN’s global expansion and builds upon successful campaigns with operators in both Australia and the wider region,” said Paul Carragher, Founder and CEO of BiSN. “The Perth facility is one part of our commitment to rapidly support operators, allowing them to deploy Wel-lok™ technology for all intervention and P&A sealing applications.”  

New facility features full heater and bismuth-based alloy production, final assembly

The Perth facility features full heater and bismuth-based alloy production, two major components of Wel-lok™ technology, as well as final assembly. It also provides a focus for regional business development and a field operations base.

The state-of-the art demonstration room allows operators to get hands-on with Wel-lok and other innovative BiSN technologies, facilitating a collaborative environment for planning plug and abandonment, intervention, and completion solutions.

Andy Vigor appointed Regional Business Development Advisor

In early 2023, BiSN appointed Andy Vigor as Regional Business Development Advisor in Perth. Previously, Vigor worked for many years in Operations, Sales and Marketing roles in the Middle East and Asia Pacific Region.  During this period, he was based in Jakarta, Australia, Singapore, and Dubai. He then returned to Perth for 20 years.  With more than 28 years of experience, Andy has a very broad understanding of the market, customer challenges and requirements, which places him in an ideal position to support BiSN customers both in Australasia and throughout the region.

“With the geographical size of the Australasia and the Asia Pacific region, response time and the ever-increasing cost of logistics is critical to our customers,” said Vigor. “We can now provide customized, engineered products and solutions locally, which will assist BiSN in its efforts to achieve service excellence for all of our regional customers.”

Increased operational capacity = more rapid response

Before the facility opened in Australia, lead times due to shipping from the US or UK could be prohibitive for operators and their fast-moving intervention needs. The opening of this facility removes that barrier, simplifying the deployment plans in this region.

“By opening a facility in Perth, it allows us to be more responsive to the needs of operators in Australia,” said Adrian Weiss, BiSN Senior Vice President of Operations. “The new facility is a continuation of BiSN’s commitment to increasing our global capability. We have listened to our clients in this region, and we are responding to help them seal safer and protect forever.”
