Halliburton is working closely with Exceed, the largest independent well and reservoir management company, on a six-well integrated plug & abandonment campaign on Centrica Storage’s Rough Alpha platform in the North Sea, scheduled for execution in the first quarter of 2023.
The teams are in the midst of extensive planning and collaboration to engineer cost-effective offline solutions and take advantage of Halliburton and Exceed’s well abandonment experience in the Southern North Sea.
'We are excited to see the overall increased value provided by Halliburton and Exceed working collaboratively on this integrated project as we transition from the planning to the execution phase,' said Steve Nowe, area vice president, Halliburton. 'It is important to be able to listen and respond with technology and operational efficiencies as the industry strives to lower decommissioning costs.'
The work scope will deploy services from multiple Halliburton product service lines and use key Halliburton technologies such as CorosaCem ™, a reduced Portland content cement designed for improved resistance to corrosive environments. This will provide a key solution in the abandonment of an ex-gas production well.
'The project team is ready to commence P&A operations. They have performed a series of combined operations exercises, issued final applications and notifications, and completed full team Abandon Well on Paper (AWOP) reviews, to ensure all is ready to begin safe operations,' said Glenn Wilson, project manager, Centrica Storage. 'This type of project requires extensive planning and engineering to provide solutions to the challenges in the Rough Alpha Wells P&A project. The combined team is ready to begin and deliver leading, benchmark performance.'
