Title: A New Solution For Permanent Well Abandonment
Date: October 20th, 2016
Time: 10:45 – 12:45
Place: Gulf Canada Square – 6th floor
401 9 Ave SW, Calgary
Presenters: Michael Skjold & Henriette Horjen – Interwell
Interwell P&A (IWPA) is introducing a new solution for permanent abandonment of wells. The objective is to deliver a more efficient, safe and environmentally preferred method for abandonment. Well integrity requirements will be met by reestablishing the cap rock formation and consequently preventing fluid migration from the reservoir.
The IWPA technology concept utilizes heat to melt all well elements and form a cross-sectional, permanent barrier within the cap rock formation. The barrier is a product from a gasless, exothermic reaction. The reaction components solidify into a synthetic igneous rock, forming a low permeable bond to the host rock. Numerous tests have been performed on the technology in atmospheric and simulated well conditions. In August 2016, two pilot wells were performed in Alberta in co-operation with Centrica. The results of these pilot wells will be reviewed during the presentation.
Bookings are closed for this event.
