What is Wellcem Solution?

To make it short: Wellcem provides a resin-based sealing solution for leaking wells. The solution is customized and engineered for each unique well. Customers are oil and gas operators and service companies, who need to seal and secure their wells.

The sealing solution and delivery methodology are developed and perfected over twenty years and deployed in many hundred wells all over the world, both on- and offshore.

Pros and Cons with the Wellcem Solution

- What kind of leaks can we seal?

Theoretically, Wellcem can seal all leaks. More specifically, this kind of resin solution is particularly suitable for leaks in difficult-to-reach places, and places where it is hard to place other sealing material or mechanical seals, or those other methods would be too expensive.

  • The material we use is permanent and will last well past the life of the well
  • The sealing material will withstand all normal well fluids and can only be removed by mechanical means
  • The material is robust and to some degree flexible enabling it to withstand mechanical shock or shock due to for example temperature or pressure changes in the well

- And which ones can we not fix?

There are a few applications we would not recommend to use our solution:

  • It is not suitable for primary cementing
  • It is also not very suitable for leaks in a mechanically dynamic environment with moving parts

Do you have a specific case you would like to discuss with us? 

Describe your challenge. We will contact you as soon as practically possible to discuss the case further.

We will then do a brief feasibility study/analysis and let you know within 48 hours, whether we believe we can provide an available solution.

Applications 

Application

Plug & Abandonment (P&A)

The primary objective is to ensure that no leaks to surface exist and that no formation fluid migration occurs even many years after the well has been abandoned.

Application

Zonal Isolation

Most oil and gas wells have different zones. Zonal isolation seeks to segregate undesirable intervals from production.

Application

Sustained Casing Pressure

Regardless of definition, either SCP, SAP or CCA, it is a well integrity issue with a failed barrier. It requires management or workover.

Application

Casing Leak

Casing leaks are often a result of leaking casing threads, burst casing from pressure, corrosion or from casing wear due to extended periods of drilling operations.

Application

Lost Circulation

Lost Circulation means you are losing your circulation of fluids off to a low-pressure and permeable formation somewhere in the well.

Application

Control Line

Many wells have a hydraulic control line running down along the casing or tubing. Control lines can develop an undesired leak.

How we work

This process start when we have an identified well candidate.

Our Project Engineer will follow the project from start till finished.

Collect relevant data

Collect relevant data

The project engineer will communicate with the relevant engineer in the client team, collect all necessary information and work out and agree on a detailed technical plan

Design

Design

Do tentative lab tests. Work out technical solution. Upon agreement of the work (PO), the project engineer will ensure our lab designs a recipe that meets the agreed properties

Prejob

Prejob

Perform final lab tests. When timing of the job is established, the project engineer will arrange for all logistics and also coordinate as needed with other service providers

Execute

Execute

The project engineer will be on the rig ensuring the job is executed as planned

Post job

Post job

The project engineer will make an “End of Job” report to summarize up the result, lessons learned and recommendation for future work

Pricing

We acknowledge that every well has its unique conditions that needs individual solutions. Therefore, we make sure we use the necessary resources prior to operations commencing in order to:

  • Full understanding of client objective
  • Be able to outline risk and establish corresponding contingency plan and mitigation actions
  • Execute Engineering, design and applicable testing for optimized solutions
  • Establish procedures and program in liaison with client.

This is also reflected in our price model, comprising of the following main elements:

  • Pre-job engineering (design, engineering, testing and planning)
  • Service Charge (on site)
  • Material cost
  • Personnel and Equipment day rates
  • Mob/demob charges
