New mobile mixer technology from annular isolation technology specialist CannSeal facilitates the company’s proprietary epoxy resin to be mixed on-site, opening up new markets independent of location as it removes constrictions associated with storage and curing times, the manufacturer said.
CannSeal said its tested and qualified epoxy is tailored to the specific challenges of each well, and the mobile mixer allows the resin to be developed immediately before installation, with the ability to adjust for well temperature on site.
With viscosity up to 4 million (cP), the epoxy resin is injected into the annulus using CannSeal’s patented delivery tool. This process avoids the need for heavy workovers, creating a cost-effective, alternative sealing solution. Designed to target two key industry challenges, the mobile mixer is available to use on both of CannSeal’s products - IntegritySeal and ZonalSeal. The fully adaptable solution extends well life by reestablishing well barriers in the hardest-to-reach areas with minimal interruption to production.
CannSeal’s Chief Executive Officer, Bengt Gunnarsson, said, “The new mobile mixer represents a significant investment in our global expansion. As word about our technology’s capabilities spread, the ability to cut lead time was a question we received frequently. As a team of scientists and engineers, we took on the challenge to do this and we are very proud of our resulting mobile mixer.
“With a track record of over 50 successful runs onshore and offshore, we look forward to opening up new markets with this technology.”
CannSeal earlier this month announced a new partnership with Houston-based Renegade Service, which saw Renegade Services exclusively launch CannSeal’s IntegritySeal and ZonalSeal products to the US market. CannSeal said it sees the US as a strategic market due to the large number of wells with integrity issues.
