Preventing drill bit and casing damage from the drill out of conventional shoetracks.

The subsea well cementing status quo currently involves the use of the poor boy inner string method and SSR plug method. The standard poor boy inner string cement job involves running an inner string to within a pre-designed distance of the float shoe and making this up to the running tool. The cement job is then pumped and displaced, leaving a designed shoetrack length to try and guarantee quality cement…

“Anyone for a SPOF?” … no thanks! How SeaCure® mitigates Single Points of Failure

You don’t need to look far before a Single Point of Failure (SPOF) gets some hard press, from “…SPOF is essentially a flaw in the design, configuration, or implementation of a system” to “SPOFs are undesirable in any system with a goal of high availability or reliability”. Engineers in the well construction industry are often tasked with de-risking their operations and, arguably, their most valuable time spent can be attributed…

How SeaCure is supporting operators move toward Net Zero goals

DeltaTek launched its SeaCure services in 2018 and has gone on to deploy the technology on multiple new wells in the UK North Sea and the Mediterranean. DeltaTek has been vocal about the time and cost-saving benefits of the technology (up to 80% in some cases), but something that we don’t often discuss is the environmental impact.   “Cement manufacture is one of our biggest contributors to wells carbon budgets”…
