Low cost and low CO2 emissions for your next exploration and production well

Over the last twenty years, Neodrill has combined innovation with fresh thinking to reimagine structural wellhead foundations. Its patent-protected Conductor Anchor Node (CAN) technology has revolutionized the top-hole or conductor section of the well to reduce emissions, costs, and risk. The CAN is a conductor-less alternative to conventional conductor installed with a vessel.


With a track record spanning over 30 installations, the CAN technology is widely respected across the industry as a better alternative to conventional conductor installations.

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 on the Bauge field.

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.
