STAVANGER, Norway – Neodrill has won contracts to provide its CAN-ductor technology for three new wells offshore northwest Europe.

One will be for Repsol for an exploration well in the North Sea, with installation set to take place this summer ahead of a likely spud during the fall. In this case Neodrill will supply its new Engineered Conductor Support product, which is said to optimize the fatigue life of wellhead systems.

Last month the company installed a CAN-ductor for Total for a well east of Shetland, the first time that the technology was deployed in mixed soil conditions.

DEA Group is also set to start using the CAN technology offshore Norway this summer.

According to Neodrill, the projects should benefit from a saving of two to four rig days per well, and from a more robust well foundation.

Other claimed benefits of the CAN technology are improved fatigue life and well load capacity, with the potential for refurbishment and re-deployment.
