Conductor Anchor Node (CAN) Conductor Support Technology

The Conductor Anchor Node (CAN) technology saves money and environmental risks by pre-installing conductor support, for example, in deepwater / shallow reservoirs or in soft geotechnical conditions.

The conventional drilled/cemented or jetted conductor is replaced by a Conductor Anchor Node, which is a specially designed suction anchor with integrated conductor.

A DP vessel is used to install the CAN/Conductor ahead of rig arrival, thus removing the 36’’ (42’’) hole drilling, conductor running and cementing operations from the rig drilling schedule.
