Review case histories for SCSSV leak repairs
SEALMAKER sealants are designed specifically for SCSSV and DHSV leaks with the most effective proven sealants available today. SEALMAKER is a patented technology that is being used around the world to solve down-hole safety valve leaks and insert valve leaks including extensive use on subsea wells. The ability to chemically repair a down-hole safety valve leak in a matter of hours and to be able to bring a well back on-line quickly equates to a massive cost savings to the client.
SEALMAKER is compatibile with any type of hydraulic fluid system and with it's inherent property to remain liquid until exposed to a leak path, makes it ideal for these applications.
The outstanding phyical properties of the resulting seal that is created gives you the confidence to know that the leak has been fixed and the system restored to full operational capability, as high as 20,000-psi and operating temperatures in excess of 700ºF. Our repairs have another unique property unlike any other. SEALMAKER has a strong fibrillating characteristic during activation within a leak path. This means that the final seal developed comprises of tighty intertwined fibrils which give it strength in all directions and that you will be able to pressure test your annulus in the opposite direction that the seal was set and not have to worry about it failing while it bonds tenaciuosly to the leak path walls. With SEALMAKER you mantain full functionality of the entire wellbore and do not have to develop special procedures after a repair has been made.
SEALMAKER is easy to apply in the field. The normal procedure is to provide our local personnel with the leak information known. We generally need the leak-rate, pressure information, normal operating pressure, hydraulic fluid type, control-line size, wall thickness, SCSSV setting depth, and contact information which can be submitted via our , from there you can also attach any associated files such as well-bore diagrams, diagnostics performed, etc., to help us generate a solution. We can then prepare a technical proposal including procedure, equipment list, and chemical list, and then issue a commercial proposal given the leak condition and upon approval begin the mobilization process. We have personnel, equipment, & chemicals stationed around the world to ensure a rapid repsonse time. Everything will then be mobilized to the job site and our highly experienced crews take over to apply the chemicals to the well and get it fixed. After treatment is complete and the leak has been sealed, the valve is typically cycled to ensure it is functioning properly, then the well is placed back on-line as quickly as possible and you are back on production, quickly, easily, and efficiently.
