Well construction specialist, DeltaTek Global has announced an international contract award by Energean Oil and Gas to supply its proprietary SeaCure cementing technology to support the Karish deepwater project in Israel.
DeltaTek will provide optimisation services using its SeaCure technology for all 20-inch surface casings, which will be drilled from the Stena DrillMAX in approximately 1750m of water. DeltaTek will initially deploy SeaCure in four wells in Q1 2019.
SeaCure is a unique system which delivers stabbed-in, inner string cementing for subsea wells. The technology provides a range of major cost and time saving benefits to drilling and field development operations - including elimination of shoetracks and clean out runs, improved cement placement and reduced displacement, offline casing pressure testing, and improved drill out performance, with minimised risk of bottom hole assembly damage.
DeltaTek CEO, Tristam Horn, commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded our first large scale international contract, supporting Energean Oil and Gas in Israel on a high profile, deepwater, exploration and development campaign, opening up the deployment envelope for our game changing well construction technology. 2018 was an incredible year for DeltaTek and we plan to continue building on those successes as we move into 2019.
“SeaCure has been brought to market quickly, thanks to the support of our industry partners and the technology's proven rig time saving ability. Adoption from major operators and successful field deployment results continue to demonstrate the efficiencies SeaCure can deliver and as is a genuine time and cost saving solution for offshore cementing. We are delighted Energean has chosen SeaCure for their Karish deepwater exploration and development campaign and we look forward to working with them into the future.”
Simon French, Well Delivery Manager at Energean Oil & Gas said: “The deployment of the SeaCure technology on our deep-water surface casing string cement jobs helps us to efficiently verify the integrity the surface casing through eliminating the operational risk of a failed shoe track. Elimination of the shoe track drastically cuts down drill out times and saving money. The application offers a very elegant solution to our technical challenges and it is our pleasure to work with DeltaTek who are committed to helping us achieve success.”
Launched in 2015, DeltaTek's disruptive innovations, SeaCure® and ArticuLock® were created in response to the growing requirement for efficiently implemented, intelligent, cost saving and risk reducing products.
