Deep Casing Tools Shortlisted for Decom North Sea Awards

20 May 2019

We’re extremely proud to be shortlisted for ‘Outstanding Innovation’ in the Decom North Sea Awards.

Innovation is at the heart of what we do, we manufacture simple technology that provides drilling and completion engineers the opportunity to deliver better results.

Our application was based on our latest innovation, the Casing Cement Breaker, which was recently highlighted in the media

The Casing Cement Breaker deals with problem cement in casing, which hinders conventional methods for plugging and abandonment and slot recovery, when operators want to extend production.  By breaking the bond between the cement and breaking down the structure of the cement behind the casing , well abandonment methods including perforate and wash, cut and pull and milling are simplified and easier or, in the case of milling, are no longer needed, saving operators significant time and cost and reducing risk and uncertainty.

We have received significant industry interest in the tool, which has re-enforced the need for this technology which will help to drastically reduce the pulling force required to remove casing strings by enabling removals that would not have otherwise been feasible.

David Stephenson, CEO of Deep Casing Tools said: “To be shortlisted is a fantastic achievement for Deep Casing Tools.  We have a team of dedicated, highly skilled people with a hunger for bringing technology to market that solves industry challenges, so to be recognised in this way is brilliant.

We are thoroughly looking forward to the awards evening and we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the other businesses in our category, Ecosse IP LTD and Sentinel Subsea.”

The Decom North Sea Awards which returns for its second year, is the first industry awards dedicated to decommissioning excellence.  The awards which take place on Tuesday 28th May recognises the efforts of Decom North Sea members to innovate and collaborate within the sector.
