Downhole Technology Specialist BiSN Announces North Sea Commitment With £2m Facility

BiSN, the global leader in innovative metal-to-metal downhole technology sealing solutions, continues to expand its services to North Sea clients, by announcing the expansion of its corporate headquarters.

Based in Warrington, the £2million premises will see BiSN expand into a 2,000 sq/m, site, which brings its research and development activity under the same roof as a newly-acquired machine shop.

BiSN’s innovative Wel-LOK M2M technology range has attracted investment from some of the world’s major oil and gas operators, and the company is now growing its UK operations in order to specifically service the completions, interventions and abandonment markets.

Chief executive officer, Paul Carragher explains: “The international demand for BiSN’s unique downhole technology has increased exponentially. The purpose of our most recent UK investment is two-fold; firstly, it allows us to continue our ground-breaking alloy development, whilst dramatically improving product availability to those operating across the Eastern Hemisphere.

“Secondly, our technology – which utilises a bismuth-based alloy and modified thermite heaters – is turning traditional downhole sealing methodology on its head; we are opening up a range of applications previously thought impossible. With that in mind, our improved headquarters provide the ideal setting in which our clients can witness the technology for themselves.

“This has already proved highly effective at our Houston assembly facility, and we look forward to welcoming our clients to Warrington.”

In tandem with the launch of its new manufacturing facility, BiSN aims to increase its UK workforce by 100%. Whilst two key appointments – including UK Workshop Manager – have already been made – the company is currently recruiting for a total of 10 senior engineer and technician roles.
