Revolutionize subsea well construction with CAN-technology
The CAN-ductor enhances well foundations significantly, delivering operational and commercial advantages for exploration and production wells alike. Reach out to us to discover how we can transform your operations, helping you cut costs and reduce CO2 emissions for your upcoming project.
Over the last twenty years, Neodrill has combined innovation with fresh thinking to reimagine structural well foundations. Its patent-protected Conductor Anchor Node (CAN) technology is used extensively for both exploration and production wells to reduce emissions, costs, and risk. The CAN is a conductor-less alternative to a conventional conductor installed with a vessel, and will also provide a foundation for placing SPS equipment on it like tie in systems and manifolds.
With a track record of 40+ installations in Norway and international, the CAN technology is a widely accepted solution reducing emissions, costs, and risk.
MEET THE CAN-DUCTOR
An evolution of existing technology for the ultimate subsea wellhead foundation to eliminate any conductor stability issues.
The CAN-ductor is a suction anchor with one joint of integrated conductor. The load capacity of the CAN allows us to shorten the length of the conductor to one joint. The conductor is integrated in our workshop where we have complete control of the environment. The suction anchor pushes the conductor into the seabed, providing top-hole support for the well. By installing the top-hole with light vessels, the CAN-ductor ensures that the subsea well foundation is in place before the rig arrives on location.
Unlike traditional wellhead systems that leave operators with stability uncertainties up to and after installation, the CAN-ductor provides a reliable well foundation with verified high load capacity.
Equinor has purchased a licence to use the Neodrill technology under the brand name CAP-X, and the first use was for a field development on the Bauge field on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
WHY USE A CAN?
An innovative, proven solution that cuts well construction time and cost, reduces emissions, risk, and improves safety.
The CAN-ductor creates a smarter well foundation with operational and commercial benefits for both exploration and production wells.
Zero rig time: pre-installed by a vessel
Managed fatigue capacity
Load capacity is calculated and verified
Pre-installed conductor in the workshop, ensures quality and integrity
No cementing or grouting
Reduces risk due to reduced open-water rig operations making risk management ALARP
- Hands off conductor installation
- Reduced heavy lifts
- Simplified logistics
- Best available practise
Reduced season dependancy
Reduced project execution time
Saves 2 - 4 rig days
Pre-mounted equipment cost savings
Since its first installation in 2006, the CAN has been successfully delivered to 35+ wells. Each installation saves an average of 2-4 rig days amounting to valuable time and resources for operators.
