Astrimar signs collaboration agreement with Rawwater Engineering Company
Independent specialist engineering consultancy Astrimar signed a collaboration agreement with Rawwater Engineering Company Limited. The agreement was signed at the SPE Aberdeen 9th Well Abandonment Symposium in June 2019. Rawwater, creator or the Bismuth Plug, worked with Astrimar on two Innovate UK projects to qualify advanced bismuth alloys for plugging and abandonment as well as other sealing applications. Astrimardeveloped the STEM-flow tool, a predictive well integrity modeling software can be used to forecast long-term plug performance, reflecting the specific downhole well and casing conditions and plug material behaviour obtained from qualification tests. In addition to providing reliability and integrity assurance for the Rawwater bismuth plugs, the predictions from Astrimar’s numerical models can be used to support well P&A design risk assessments. With the collaboration agreement, Rawwater and Astrimar will provide a combined plug service provision, with well-specific seal performance forecasts.
