A new approach to well integrity

“There’s a need for a proactive approach to well integrity through metal-to-metal sealing technology”, said Meta CEO. A study on the Norwegian Continental Shelf by the Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority, found that every fifth well analysed had well integrity weaknesses. In addition, a 2011 SPE paper found that 45% of Gulf of Mexico wells had sustained casing pressure. “There’s a need for a new approach to well integrity – a need for the adoption of new technologies that address previous limitations and restrictions; and a need to consider known trouble zones ahead of time. One technology and method that is providing a catalyst for this change is Metalmorphology™”, said Meta CEO, Kevin Stewart, in this article on www.metadownhole.com.

Meta redefines approaches to well integrity

Meta redefines approaches to well integrity

Well integrity challenges affect the structural, tubing and casing design of the well. These challenges include damaged or stuck casing that often comes with ID restriction limitations; or corrosion and damage at any stage during the drilling, completion, production or injection phases across the well’s life cycle. Now Meta is looking to redefine approaches to well integrity. “It’s against this context that we are looking to redefine approaches to well integrity. It delivers metal to metal, that is, no elastomeric seals, V0, gas tight well integrity solutions that provide complete integrity across the well’s lifecycle and address many of today’s North Sea’s well integrity and well architecture challenges”, said VP Business Development in Meta, Richard Craig in an article on metadownhole.com » Based in the Aberdeen Energy Park at the Bridge of Don, Meta provides premium downhole isolation during drilling, completion and production to the worldwide oil and gas industry.
