To make it short:
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.

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

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.
Most oil and gas wells have different zones. Zonal isolation seeks to segregate undesirable intervals from production.
Regardless of definition, either SCP, SAP or CCA, it is a well integrity issue with a failed barrier. It requires management or workover.
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.
Lost Circulation means you are losing your circulation of fluids off to a low-pressure and permeable formation somewhere in the well.
Many wells have a hydraulic control line running down along the casing or tubing. Control lines can develop an undesired leak.
One of the most vital departments within Wellcem is the laboratory and the staff responsible for managing the activities that directly support field operations and the future development of ThermaSet® polymer technology.
The Wellcem technical research and development team is comprised of a technician holding a master’s in chemistry and two PhD polymer chemists.
The team is constantly developing new ways to enhance the properties and help broaden the scope of ThermaSet® applications.
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:
