Offshore staff

STAVANGER, Norway Archer Oiltools has introduced the Stronghold product family, a series of perforating, washing and cementing systems.

Stronghold encompasses modern perforation, wash, and cement systems for a permanent annular barrier.

The field-proven Barricade system perforates, washes, and cements the annulus, creating a rock-to-rock barrier in one trip.

Defender, the field-proven barrier test system, enables operators to perforate and test annular barrier.

Rampart is cup-less system that perforates, cleans, and cements the annulus, creating a rock-to-rock barrier in just one trip.

The company says the solution will generate cost- and time-savings for operators while protecting the environment.

Hugo Idsøe, Vice President and Managing Director of Archer Oiltools, says: “The Stronghold systems provide a cost-efficient, flexible, and reliable alternative to traditional methods in plug and abandonment, slot recovery, and other challenges faced by operators in today’s environment.

“By eliminating the need for cutting, milling and pulling tubulars out of the well, Archer’s Stronghold systems deliver a step-change in effectiveness for barrier placement.”
