CAN helps operators reduce cost, CO2 emissions, and schedule risk for their assets in an operationally and commercially efficient manner.

The CAN-ductor solution is ideal for exploration wells since it is a rental product. A simple P&A operation from a vessel prior to recover the conductor with the CAN, simplifies rig operations and mitigates a series of common top-hole risks. The rig can leave the location once the well is plugged as the surface casing is cut during CAN recovery. 


A light construction vessel recover the CAN and conductor, which typically takes less than 24 hours on-location to complete. Once recovered, the CAN is refurbished onshore and available for deployment to another location ensuring low cost and low CO2 emissions.

Today the Neodrill team offers a lean full-service Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation solution. Through long-term cooperation with sub-suppliers and partners, the Neodrill team manages all aspects of a CAN project - from adapting the CAN to the specific soil conditions, to organizing the installation vessel and executing the installation.

By using collective experience and knowledge from previous projects, costs associated with CAN projects have been significantly reduced over time, in some cases up to 50%.

Drilling in shallow reservoirs

OMV's Wisting Central II

The CAN-ductor offer has an unique possibility to enable shallow kick-off, having been field proven in the Barents Sea to reach reservoir depths horizontally at 250 m below seabed.


In the Wisting Central II well, the CAN-ductor enabled kick-off to start at 10 m below mudline, ensuring that the reservoir could be penetrated horizontally at 250 m below the mudline. This set a new drilling record as the shallowest horizontal offshore well drilled from a MODU.

As we all strive to support global and industry initiatives to reduce carbon emissions, our CAN technology has been proven to help customers reduce their emissions in the order of 30-45% for the top hole section of the well.



CAN technology offers multiple opportunities as the structural well foundation to enable other advancements for subsea solutions.
