Oilfield services giant Schlumberger has acquired Aberdeen-based Peak Well Systems (Peak), a specialist in the design and development of advanced downhole tools for flow control, well intervention and well integrity.
Peak Well Systems designs and manufactures advanced downhole tools that isolate, extend well life, restore well integrity and enhance well performance with SIM* retrievable bridge plugs and disruptive technologies such as the SIMULTRA* plug, which is a high performance retrievable bridge plug capable of providing high-pressure, high-temperature, and gas tight (ISO 14310:2008 – Grade V0) zonal isolation, even in sour gas conditions.
Schlumberger acquired Peak from growth equity investor Summit Partners and the company's founders and management team.
“In the past few years, Peak has developed a portfolio of flow control technologies that are recognized as some of the leading products in the industry largely due to their simplicity, performance, reliability and ease of retrievability,” said Hinda Gharbi, president, Wireline, Schlumberger. “Bringing Peak technologies into our existing Production Services portfolio will give us the opportunity to offer our customers fully integrated well intervention solutions on electric line, mechanical slickline or digital slickline.”
Nigel Avern, chief executive officer, Peak Well Systems, said: “Schlumberger’s acquisition of Peak is extremely positive news for both companies and for the industry in general. We have been working closely with Schlumberger on several collaborations and initiatives during the past year and what has become clearly apparent is our compatibility. This is a natural fit for both companies and one which will ultimately benefit our customers.”
