CAN-WSS

Patented next-generation subsea technology that protects the wellhead during drilling operations to ensure a virgin wellhead for the production life of the well. 

Adapting our industry proven CAN well foundation, Neodrill has developed the CAN-WSS (Wellhead Saver System). Designed to re-direct the bending forces from the BOP directly to the well foundation (CAN) it protects the wellhead, conductor and casing from over-bending and over-stressing, resulting in extended fatigue life. 

FEATURES & BENEFITS

Deployed from vessel or drilling rig and utilised during drilling phase 

Once deployed the CAN-WSS is connected to wellhead and CAN to divert loads inflicted to the well around the wellhead. 

Simple design installed and activated by ROV 

Connection of wellhead connector to wellhead by work ROV; and connection of frame to CAN unit by work ROV. 

Protects critical welds and increases wellhead fatigue life 

The CAN-WSS’s unique architecture protects the critical welds that are located under the wellhead, in addition to the conductor, and casing. 

Ideal when heavy BOPs are used in shallow water 

The CAN-WSS transfers forces and bending moments from the BOP and riser to the CAN wellhead foundation, improving well integrity and increasing wellhead fatigue life. 

APPLICATIONS

This technology is available for both exploration and production wells; as well as “old and tired” wells that are supposed to be plugged and abandoned.
