ABERDEEN — Well-Safe Solutions is supporting the decommissioning of two suspended wells in bp’s Kate Field in the North Sea, 220 km from Aberdeen.
The program of work, expected to be executed from the Noble Innovator jackup vessel during second-quarter 2023, will see Well-Safe Solutions carry out well engineering support services using its bespoke Well Decommissioning Delivery Process.
The work scope involves detailed subsurface and well engineering basis of design studies. Well-Safe Solutions will help establish and evaluate key subsurface isolation criteria including identifying and quantifying zones of flow potential and risks associated with redevelopment. It also will examine existing barriers and optimize the barrier strategy, taking into account the attributes of the region to safely and efficiently deliver this project.
Well-Safe Solutions personnel will work alongside bp staff throughout the project.
Well-Safe Solutions is currently preparing for the mobilization of the Well-Safe Defender and the fitting out of the Well-Safe Guardian with a bespoke dive spread system by summer 2023.
