KW Group begins work on next-gen decommissioning technology
27 September 2021
An innovatively designed high pressure testing system is currently in production which will be used for the research and development of a transformative well plugging and abandonment technology.
Having been commissioned by Aberdeen based Clearwell Technology, a new disruptive oilfield technology provider, both KW and Clearwell’s engineers have worked closely together in designing this complex high pressure simulation system in order to prove the next generation decommissioning technology will operate safely, and as expected, in typical wellbore conditions.
The system includes a 400 bar (5,800 psi) hyperbaric test chamber with multiple ports and penetrations, operating between 0°C to 200°C. A gas booster module includes separate gas circuits for charging, maintaining, storing and controlling test times and gas flows.
