Well Construction Operation
The WAB was positioned close to the 13 3/8” shoe, to form part of the barrier envelope.
Exposed formations below the 13 3/8” csg shoe increased the risk of gas migrating and resulting in a gas below well head causes problems during PP&A.
IS0 14310 V0 leak rate qualification of the WAB permitted installation without dispensation from the authorities.
Next step was to drill out across the reservoir section to 8 1/2" open hole.
Primary & Contingency Liner Operation
Plug & Abandonment Operation
1. Ensuring no SAP within the B annulus and as a base
2. As a future base for cement during well abandonment
After a successful well test, a bridge plug was installed inside the 9 5/8” casing just below the WAB depth.
The 9 5/8” casing was then cut and the bridge plug and WAB were tested to 70 bar above 13 3/8” LOT.
Cement was pumped to provide the necessary seal integrity to met the regulatory requirements for well abandonment.
CAPEX effective, reduced risk P&A operations.
Enhanced well integrity and extended reservoir contact via IS0 14310 V0 rated WAB portfolio.
Our ISO 14310 rated, steel expandable WAB (Welltec Annular Barrier) is expanded between the base pipe and the casing or the borehole by applying pressure in the casing.
