Centrica North Sea Limited (Centrica) has awarded HydraWell a 3-year frame contract to provide plug and abandonment (P&A) technology and services for the operator’s “A Fields” in the southern part of the North Sea.

Centrica has recently submitted a proposal to British authorities for the decommissioning of the “A Fields” development, including the Centrica-operated Ann, Audrey, Alison and Annabel fields. In total, 23 wells will be plugged and abandoned. The fields are located approximately 100 kilometres northeast of the Norfolk coast.

Under the contract, HydraWell will provide annulus integrity testing and perforation, washing and cement of annulus and inner bore through using the company’s HydraHemera high pressure Perf, Wash & Cement, PWC® jetting system for plugging and abandonment of wells.

The agreement is valid for 3 years, with two additional 1-year options (3+1+1). Centrica also has the option to expand the contract to future support of its other assets on the UK continental shelf.

“It is in the interest of the operator, license partners and British tax payer that we bring down the cost of plugging and abandonment campaigns, and doing so safely. HydraWell’s technology enables plugging of each well in 2-3 days instead of 10-14 days with conventional section milling methods. This means that the operator could save up to 200 rig days on a 20-well field,” says Mark Sørheim, CEO of HydraWell.

Centrica has earlier utilised HydraWell’s PWC® technology on other fields offshore UK as well as in the Netherlands.

“We are very pleased that Centrica has decided to utilise our P&A technology once again and look forward to supporting them at the A Fields,” says Sørheim.

HydraWell UK Ltd will manage the contract out of its office and workshop in Dyce, Aberdeen, UK. HydraWell’s headquarters are based in Stavanger, Norway.
