Brinker Exceeds Operator Requirements, Zero Failures

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

UK based, oil and gas technology company Brinker is celebrating a year of zero failures as its game-changing Platelet barrier technology redefines working practices in the global well integrity market.

It is estimated at any one moment, across the world, between 20 and 30% of existing wells do not operate due to integrity issues. Brinker’s Platelet technology enables operators to bring shut-in wells or wells producing under dispensation back online in a matter of hours.

More than 30 workover jobs have been carried out in the last year from the Arctic ice cap to the deserts of the Middle East, in temperatures ranging from minus 40 degrees Celsius to plus 50 degrees Celsius - all completed with a 100% success rate.

Demand for Brinker’s technology in North America has been such that the company recently set up an office in Houston, as it continues to grow its market share in the region.

Brinker has developed its unique Platelet barrier technology, and its Telepath leak location system to provide instant downhole rigless thru-wellhead workover services for simultaneously finding and fixing tubing and casing leaks in wells.

The company’s Platelet technology - applied through the wellhead - eliminates delay, costs, risks and logistical issues associated with a rig workover. Platelets can restore full production capacity in a matter of hours, by finding and fixing leaks from the wellhead down. It does this by deployment through the annulus or tubing of a well, enabling operators to bring shut in or under-producing wells back on line, or to full production, within hours rather than months in a cost-effective, efficient and safe solution.

Brinker chief executive officer, Kevin Stewart said, “We are completely rewriting the rules regarding the time it takes to fix and find leaks and previous assumptions about the viability of shut in wells. We are now enabling our customers to implement field-wide integrity programmes by bringing multiple wells back on line, in many cases, in just hours, which is unprecedented. A recent job saw us find and fix five wells in just four days with zero failure or disruption to the operator’s workflows.
