“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.
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.
Meta is a company in the Viking Venture III portfolio.
