Repsol Hires HydraWell for P&A Services Off Norway
Repsol Norge has awarded a frame agreement to HydraWell to provide technology and services for the operator’s plug and abandonment on the Norwegian continental shelf.
The frame agreement is valid for four years, with three additional two-year options.
In principle this means that the Repsol can utilise HydraWell’s high pressure PWC (Perforate, Wash & Cement) jetting system as their technical solution for all its wells that will be plugged and abandoned on the Norwegian continental shelf.
“Gyda is a significantly sized field with 32 well slots, so we are very thankful to be in position to support Repsol here and at the Rev field with three subsea wells,” says Mark Sørheim, CEO of HydraWell.
To conduct future P&A jobs for Repsol, HydraWell will offer its HydraHemera PWC jetting system, which is said to be capable of installing a rock-to-rock barrier in less than two days.
“We have installed 232 plugs with the PWC-method worldwide. An increasing number of operators prefer this option to traditional section milling, as it reduces both costs, HSE risks and the environmental footprint of each P&A job,” adds Sørheim.
