Venture Production Uses UWG's Camscan on Sycamore Field

Venture Production recently used UWG Group's Camscan system on its Sycamore field located in the North Sea. Camscan was able to assess the condition of two suspended wellheads. The wells had lain dormant for 10 and 11 years respectively. Camscan, which was lowered to a depth of about 130 meters, was used first to evaluate the state of the wellheads and then monitor their cleaning with UWG brushing and flushing tools.

Work on the first well started in July this year and has been completed. Work on the second well began in October and is expected to be completed in the next few weeks. Oil production from the two wells is expected to begin early next year.

Venture Production Company Limited drilling engineer Mal Evans said: "Camscan, has proved to be an impressive system both in terms of its effectiveness and the efficiency of the operation it undertook. We would certainly consider using it for similar operations in the future."
