UK-based SME seeks monitoring technology for evaluation of fluids and cements in the structure of subsea oil well boreholes
Summary:
A UK-based SME is looking for technologies that can monitor and be used in the diagnostic analysis of the structure of subsea oil well boreholes by measuring changes in the density and structure of the different materials used in borehole construction. The research institution is looking to partner with companies, universities and research institutions with the partnership envisaged as commercial agreement with technical assistance or a joint venture agreement.
Description:
The structural integrity of a subsea oil well borehole is essential for its functioning and to prevent environmental damage. It is therefore important that these boreholes are inspected and any changes in structural integrity can be detected. Subsea oil well boreholes are lined by concentric pipes of decreasing diameter. In the annuli between these pipes are different materials, for example brine or oil-based fluids in some cases weighted with barite. The outer casing is typically cemented in place. This concentric ring structure and the different materials used makes monitoring structural integrity difficult. Currently ultrasound tools can be used but the steel casings used in borehole construction hinder the use of ultrasound by blocking or creating noise.

A UK-based SME, established by an internationally respected research institute with the aim of providing support to turn advanced technologies into profitable products and services for different markets, is looking for technologies that can be used to monitor the integrity of the borehole structure and perform diagnostics on the different structural components. The technology will need to be able to determine the type, quality of and density of each material in each of the annuli and be able to detect density changes in the material as well as measure the cement quality.

The SME is looking to partner with companies, universities and research institutes working in off shore oil and gas exploration that has a solution or can provide consultancy to develop one but is willing to consider technology from other end-application sectors that is capable of addressing the problem of carrying out monitoring and diagnostic analysis of subsea oil well boreholes. It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a joint venture agreement.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
The technology must be able to address two main challenges. First, the measurement of the density of the fluids used, especially in regard to barite weighted fluid as the barite can settle out resulting in density change. Secondly is measuring the quality of the cement used, in particular how well the cement is bounded to the inner and outer casing and whether fluid channels have formed.

The technology must also be able to detect to a radius of 18 - 24 inches (46-61 cm).

It must also be able to penetrate steel casing thicknesses varying from 0.1 in to 2 inches (0.2 to 5cm) approximately.

Unless it is able to overcome the problem of being blocked by steel casings ultrasound technology will not be considered.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
A UK-based SME, established by an internationally respected research institute, aims to provide support to turn advanced technologies into profitable products and services for different markets. This SME is looking to partner with companies, universities and research institutes that operate within the offshore oil and gas exploration and have either technology that addresses the problem of monitoring structural integrity of subsea oil well boreholes or expertise that could be used on a consultancy basis to address this problem.

The SME will also consider partnerships with companies, universities and research institutions outside the oil and gas exploration sector but who have technologies that address similar problems of carrying out diagnostics of structures in difficult or hard to reach situations.

It is envisaged that the partnerships will take the form of a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a joint venture agreement dependant on the technology and the amount of development required before implementation
