Wellcem restores production in a 49-year old well for PDO in Oman
Fahud West 24, which accounts for a quarter of the field’s production, was drilled and completed in 1967 in the Natih reservoir but established an A-annulus pressure failure in 2014.
The breakthrough to fix an integrity problem without major maintenance or remedial workover could lead to the cost-efficient procedure being implemented on numerous wells in PDO.
sealant technology was successfully utilized to restore well integrity and production with 41% less cost than a conventional workover.
