Technical Training Webinar Series: ADOS and Connector Subsea Solutions
Currently around 70% of global oil production is extracted from mature fields. Ever increasing productivity and field life is enabled by impressive advances in oilfield technology and innovation. Offshore operators are faced with the challenge of managing ageing assets all around the world. This technical training will highlight critical solutions developed by CSS to mechanically repair clamps for severed conductors.
The conductor repair clamp is specifically developed for the repair of conductors in the splash zone area with damage inside the guide funnels where a welding repair is impossible. This can frequently occur due to damaged and/or broken centralizers. Repair within the guide funnel is particularly challenging due to the restricted access that prevents the use of standard/conventional clamps with longitudinal bolting.
Using our patented C-Bar activation, our conductor repair clamp mitigates the need for longitudinal bolting to ensure a fit within the guide tunnel. Activation via the top or bottom enables fast, easy and safe access by divers or ROV. Including a structural and a sealing element, the clamp can take the full structural load of the conductor and prevent leaks from occurring. Delivered with custom centralizers mounted on the body to reinstate the centralizing function, the clamp addresses the potential root cause of the original failure. Our experts will focus on CSS’s conductor repair clamp which is a field proven solution, enabling efficient, safe, secure, and permanent repair required to bring the wells back into production.
