Deep Casing Tools bolsters team due to demand for new plugging and abandonment solution


News release – 5 November, 2019

Aberdeen-headquartered well technology company, Deep Casing Tools (DCT), has bolstered its capability in the plug and abandonment (P&A) sector with the appointment of Alan Glen as Product Line Manager for Casing Recovery Systems.

This new position has been created to focus on bringing DCT's highly anticipated Casing Cement Breaker (CCB) tool to market.

After being proven in a successful trial with Equinor in May 2019, the CCB is currently being further developed in collaboration with Total, Equinor and the Oil and Gas Technology Centre.

The tool, which uses simple pressure and rotation to quickly and efficiently break the bond between cement and casing, has the potential to significantly reduce the cost and time of decommissioning and improve success rate when compared with stand-alone cut and pull, and perf and wash techniques.

Bringing over 15 years' experience in the decommissioning and P&A sectors, Alan is set to play a pivotal role in the commercialisation of the CCB and future casing recovery systems which will be developed by DCT.

Alan's extensive background, with positions held in Weatherford, Baker Hughes, and most recently Abrado Well Services, has seen him move from an operational role to focus on bringing new products to market, identifying product applications and ensuring a high level of client satisfaction.

David Stephenson, CEO of Deep Casing Tools said: “We're delighted to welcome Alan to the DCT team, where he'll be managing the development and commercialisation of our Casing Recovery Systems across key regions with strategic partners. This revolutionary tool has already attracted the attention of major operators and partners, and we're extremely confident in Alan's ability to help our offering evolve from concept to reliable solutions.”
