HydraWell, a well solutions provider based in Norway, has recently introduced its innovative downhole tooling solution ‘HydraTyphon’, to deliver improved reliability in difficult environments.
According to HydraWell, the solution combines the benefits of jet and cup-based washing and cementing systems, and has been designed to improve the efficiency of the downhole hydraulic activity over any other system available. The combined advantage of these two systems is said to reduce perforating and operating costs as well as minimise environmental impact.
Tom Leeson, Chief Commercial Officer at HydraWell said, "Our experienced team is focused on developing ingenious technologies to transform well operations around the world. We are always looking for ways to push the boundaries and HydraTyphon hits the mark for new advancements in downhole tooling techniques. HydraTyphon offers a wide range of benefits, not least providing our clients with the chance to reduce their environmental footprint whilst transforming their well operations.”
Back in 2008, HydraWell designed, developed, tested and patented a system portfolio for wellbore applications known industry-wide as Perforation, Wash and Cement (PWC). The company says its PWC technology has the potential to slash the operational sequence by up to six days when compared to the conventional section milling alternative. The increased efficiency benefits help to reduce environmental impact as well as the potential to reduce operating costs by up to millions of dollars in estimation.
HydraTyphon is an evolution of PWC delivering improved reliability for challenging well characteristics including high cement content in annuli, shallow barrier depth and large annuli.
Mark Sorheim, CEO at HydraWell commented, “We pride ourselves on being true innovators – our forward-thinking team continually develop our range of systems in response to bespoke customer requirements to support industry challenges. Furthermore, HydraWell regards sustainability as one of its top priorities as we strive for efficiency gains and proactively lower the risk of long-term environmental damage by exploring and developing solutions to support our clients’ environmental savings.”
