BiSN achieves double first with innovative tool deployment in Azerbaijan

BiSN, the global leader in metal-to-metal downhole sealing solutions, has achieved a double first with the successful deployment of its pioneering sealing solution in Azerbaijan.

The award-winning company also marked the first tool setting on telecoil in its history during the project, carried out on behalf of an operator active in the region.

Utilising their unique tubing seal, Wel-lok M2M TS™ EXD, which was run and set in the well via telecoil, BiSN was able to achieve the client's aim of isolating a producing zone in order to perforate and produce a new zone higher in the well.

BiSN chief executive officer, Paul Carragher, said: “Our tools are typically set on electric line as we need the electrical current to activate our unique thermite heater. However, for highly deviated wells it is difficult to get the tools past the deviation as you rely on gravity to get them to depth - and the more deviated it is the less gravity helps.

“Utilising telecoil allowed us to push the tool into the well without relying on gravity, while still supplying the electricity needed to set our tool. This is the first time our tool has been set using this configuration and we are delighted to have successfully carried it out, paving the way for even more innovative uses for our technology.”

The project completion is another milestone in an exciting year for BiSN, which has received numerous accolades in recognition of its achievements, most recently winning the Outstanding Innovation award at the inaugural Decom North Sea Awards.
