Oilenco Win Multiple P&A Tooling Contracts Across Europe


Oilenco have been awarded multiple contracts to supply a package of plug and abandonment tooling to operators and decommissioning specialists across Europe.  

A unique tool, central to this package, is the Oilenco pressure wave valve, an intervention-free, open-on-demand equalising device.  Blair McCombie, Operations Director, for the well intervention tooling specialist comments; “since its first install in 2018, the pressure wave valve has built an extensive run history and as a result has become one of the leading remote opening devices on the market.”

Set below a plug or packer as part of a system to create a barrier in a well, the pressure wave valve is functioned by applying pressure via a sequence of cycles.

Blair adds; “the pressure wave valve can be configured to allow the user to conduct several pressure tests without unintentionally opening the valve.  It can be functioned when required, within a few hours, days, months or even years after installation without the need for dedicated personnel on location, and once open, provides a large through-bore and pump through capabilities without the need for further intervention.

Oilenco has a proven track record in the UKCS, providing reliable solutions for P&A campaigns.  With these recent contract wins and ongoing requests from clients and decommissioning specialists, our solutions are becoming integral to P&A toolkits.”
