Archer Oiltools, provider smart and robust solutions in well integrity and performance, has launched a new product family Stronghold – a series of perforating, washing and cementing systems – to deliver safer, faster and more economic solutions for operators worldwide.
Stronghold encompasses modern perforation, wash and cement systems for a permanent annular barrier, including:
- Barricade: Archer’s field proven Barricade system perforates, washes and cements the annulus, creating a rock-to-rock barrier in just one trip.
- Defender: Archer’s field proven barrier test system enables operators to perforate and test annular barrier.
- Rampart: Archer’s new ground-breaking cup-less system perforates, cleans and cements the annulus, creating a rock-to-rock barrier in just one trip.
The unique solution will generate significant cost and time savings for operators while protecting the environment.
Hugo Idsøe, Vice President and Managing Director of Archer Oiltools, says, “The Stronghold systems provide a cost-efficient, flexible and reliable alternative to traditional methods in plug and abandonment, slot recovery and other challenges faced by operators in today’s environment.”
“By eliminating the need for cutting, milling and pulling tubulars out of the well, Archer’s Stronghold systems deliver a step-change in effectiveness for barrier placement. The name Stronghold is synonymous to the core values that the one-trip systems bring – absolute protection and safety,” adds Idsøe.
The Stronghold systems were designed and developed by Archer’s engineers and technical specialists who have several years of experience developing innovative solutions to challenges faced by major operators globally.
Together with Tubing Conveyed Perforating (TCP) products and new charge development, Archer’s Stronghold systems support the safe and efficient execution of operations.
