DeltaTek Global’s pioneering technology announced as SPE ATCE presentation topic.
Well construction specialist DeltaTek Global has announced further success for its pioneering QuikCure® technology following its selection as a presentation topic at the 2022 SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE) in Houston, Texas.
ATCE is a leading technical energy conference and exhibition for global E&P professionals. DeltaTek’s presentation “Operator Successfully Trials Novel Cementing Technologies In A Deepwater Gulf Of Mexico Exploration Well” explores the utilisation of DeltaTek’s engineered process of circulating heated fluid to accelerate the cement slurry to enhance the early compressive strength development properties, reduce waiting on cement and save rig time.
Over the last year, QuikCure® has been proven to reduce wait on cement time from 13.5 hours to just 4 hours. DeltaTek has invested in the further development of the innovative technology, including the addition of a temperature probe into the weight-set centraliser of the assembly resulting in the introduction of temperature logging to identify when cement goes through the hydration process.
QuikCure® is one of the 35 patent applications DeltaTek has successfully completed and as such, DeltaTek is the only provider of subsea cementing technology that utilises temperature to achieve ultimate cement placement. To date, DeltaTek’s technology has supported local energy security with contributions to over 80% of the UK subsea riserless market, a notable rise from 0% just five years ago, as well as saving more than 11,000MT of CO2.
Business Development Manager, Tyler Reynolds said: “Being selected to present at the 2022 ATCE is a huge honor, we’re delighted that the Society of Petroleum Engineers recognised our innovative technology as game-changing industry advancement that is delivering substantial value to well construction projects globally.”
