World-first offshore packer repair
$30m and 12 months saved in world-first offshore packer repair with our barrier technology.
We delivered a world first to bring a high rate offshore well in Australia back into production faster by performing a rigless repair to a leaking production packer. By deploying our Wel-lok™ PRT (Packer Repair Tool) on a wireline, the major Australian operator, Woodside Energy shortened project execution by over 12 months and saved $30m compared to HWU intervention – eliminating the need to remove the production string from the well.
The V0 rated sealing of the casing annulus by our bismuth-based alloy Performance Barrier Technology created a new, enduring seal in the production tubing with no restriction to production flow.
