STAVANGER, Norway–Archer Oiltools has introduced the Stronghold product family, a series of perforating, washing and cementing systems.
Stronghold encompasses modern perforation, wash, and cement systems for a permanent annular barrier.
The field-proven Barricade system perforates, washes, and cements the annulus, creating a rock-to-rock barrier in one trip.
Defender, the field-proven barrier test system, enables operators to perforate and test annular barrier.
Rampart is cup-less system that perforates, cleans, and cements the annulus, creating a rock-to-rock barrier in just one trip.
The company says the solution will generate cost- and time-savings for operators while protecting the environment.
