New contract for well completion firm

Paul Boughton

Independent well completion and intervention technology developer and manufacturer Omega Completion Technology has secured a completions framework contract with Statoil. The contract awards Omega the right to supply its ReACT Technology (Remotely Activated Completion Technology) to all Statoil assets in the Norwegian continental shelf, totalling 35. Omega delivered the first ReACT completion solution to Statoil 10 years ago and has provided completion equipment for more than 30 Statoil wells.

The initial contract period is for approximately two years with an option for an additional period of six years thereafter.

The ReACT signalling method provides a means to remotely activate downhole completion equipment without the need for costly and complex intervention operations. The technology is a reliable, industry-recognised solution providing both a primary and back-up remote actuation functionality and mechanical contingency option. Omega has so far carried out more than 100 completions deploying ReACT equipment, securing a 100% remote actuation success.

Fredrik Harestad, general manager for Omega Completion Technology commented: “This is a great milestone for Omega in Norway and very well timed, as confirmation was received on the first anniversary of the business operations in Norway.”
