CAN is redefining the standard in structural wellhead foundations.

This technically superior solutions has been proven in 22 installations, to cut well construction time and cost, reduce risk and improve safety.

What is a CAN?

The CAN (Conductor Anchor Node) is a combination of suction anchor and one joint of conductor. The suction anchor pushes the conductor into the seabed, providing top support for the well.

This solution was developed to facilitate installation of the top hole with light vessels, providing operational and commercial benefits by enabling the subsea well foundation to be in place before the rig arrives on location.

Once installed, the CAN provides a smarter well foundation, removing the risks associated the conventional wellhead system which is widely recognized as the "weak link" in well design.

Why use a CAN?

This novel and patented approach of developing and installing a subsea wellhead foundation delivers a range of commercial savings and operational benefits when running exploration and production wells.

Operational benefits

Zero rig time: pre-installed by a vessel 
 

Managed fatigue capacity

Bending control

 

Load capacity is calculated and verified

 

Pre-installed conductor in the workshop, ensures quality and integrity

 

No cementing or grouting

 

Easy P&A

Reduces risk due to reduced open-water rig operations making risk management ALARP

Improved HSE

- Hand's off conductor installation

- Reduced heavy lifts

- Simplified logistics

- Best available practise

Reduced season dependancy

Commercial benefits

Reduced project execution time

Saves 2 - 4 rig days

Pre-mounted equipment cost savings

Accellerated production can impact the Net Present Value of the well

When to use?

Neodrill have developed four CAN-based solutions to provide a smarter start to the well construction process in both exploration and production wells.
