New tool manufactured and delivered in just four days

During the abandonment of a well, off the California coast, a major operator identified that traditional cement wasn’t providing the quality of seal they desired, as the well was leaking gas up a cemented annulus – we acted fast to ensure the well was abandoned with no environmental impact. 

By leveraging our unique alloy-based Performance Barrier Technologies platform, we were able to manufacture and deliver a tool up to the job, in just four days – with over 5,000 pounds of bismuth-based alloy – to seal out an 18 5/8″ casing.

As an alternative to traditional cement plugs, this was the fourth tool successfully deployed during their current P&A campaign on addressing leaking gas in cemented annuli (vent flow). Even the first to get the seal of approval from the local whales!
