Oil & Gas UK Award to Centrica based on the trials of Interwell P&A solution

Based on trials of the new Interwell P&A solution in Canada, Centrica just won the Oil & Gas UK Awards 2016, in the category “Business Innovation and Efficiency (Large Enterprise).”

The winners in each category were presented with their awards at an evening ceremony in Aberdeen on Thursday 3rd November, where over 450 people from across the oil and gas industry gathered to celebrate their company and individual achievements.

Centrica took the Large Enterprise Award by supporting an onshore trial of a radical new technology for well abandonment.

Mike Richardson, Centrica: Interwell’s groundbreaking P&A concept creates an impermeable barrier by melting all the well components, cement and to a certain extent rock formation around them to reinstate the caprock. The recent onshore trial results (Alberta, Canada) demonstrated that this technology could reduce abandonment costs in the North Sea by more than 50 per cent.
