The CAN-ductor is the next evolutionary development step based on the CAN technology. It combines all the technical benefits of the CAN system with the commercial benefits of a pre-rig installed conductor.

As for the CAN, the CAN-ductor is installed by vessel (anchor handler, offshore construction vessel) before rig arrival. This provides the usual verified results for the load capacity. The conductor is in place upon rig arrival, which together with the simplified P&A benefits provides cost savings of 2-4 rig days.


Conventional versus CAN-ductor

The CAN-ductor is NeoDrill’s latest development intended for cost saving, operations simplification and for development of shallow reservoirs. A short conductor is integrated into the CAN in the workshop and installed as one package by a vessel. This clever combination also offers simplified P&A operations in addition to mitigating a series of common top- hole related risks. Significant cost savings are the main driver for its application in addition to unequalled capacity for shallow kick-off.

The CAN-ductor is installed from a vessel ahead of rig arrival. This removes the 36’’ (42’’) hole drilling, conductor running and cementing operations from the rig schedule. Consequently, the ‘environmental footprint’ will be reduced.

The CAN consept offers unparalleled load capacities for single production wells, and easy integration of protection structures and pre-installation of flow lines, etc.
