BiSN, global provider of innovative metal-to-metal downhole sealing solutions, is celebrating multiple ground-breaking firsts for the business.

Working with various new clients, BiSN has expanded its marketplace, deploying tools in three new regional locations, including the Denver-Julesburg basin in Colorado, Australia and Algeria.

In addition, the Algerian project was of particular significance to the company, as it was also the highest downhole temperature – 150° C – that its Wel-lok M2M technology has been deployed in to date.

When BiSN aren’t entering new regions, with new clients, they are successfully deploying revolutionary technology in more familiar areas.  BiSN recently deployed the largest bismuth plug in the Valhall A-30 well, Norway, in conjunction with Aker BP and Altus Intervention. The trial involved using 3,500 kg of bismuth alloy to create a gas tight seal.

These achievements follow an already successful year for the company, following multiple award wins, and a major double first when deploying the first tool setting on telecoil while utilising their unique tubing seal, Wel-lok M2M TS™ EXD, in Azerbaijan.

Paul Carragher, CEO says, “We’re delighted at the number of successful firsts that we’ve achieved recently. Working with new clients, in new regions and continuously developing new tools to address specific client issues illustrates our commitment and dedication to be the best in our area of expertise.

“Rigless deployment of our tools results in highly cost-effective operations, and with every successful project we pave the way for more innovative uses of our technology,” Carragher adds.
