Conductor Anchor Node (CAN) Conductor Support Technology
Developed by Neodrill and executed in region by ICON Engineering, the Conductor Anchor Node (CAN) technology offers multiple benefits.
The CAN-ductor and CAN-integrator technologies offer:
- An innovative approach to well foundation design.
- A low cost, reusable exploration well foundation available for rental or purchase.
- Reduced risk to conductor jetting operations.
CAN-ductor is an integrated suction can/conductor/wellhead that replaces the traditional drilled/cemented or jetted conductor. The CAN is a combination of a suction anchor and a guide pipe, which acts as a conduit. The suction anchor is used for pushing the guide pipe into the seabed and for providing top support for the conductor.
The CAN-integrator is a well foundation that can support equipment that performs a drilling, Subsea Production System (SPS) or Structures, Umbilical, Riser Flowlines (SURF) functions. This enables parts of the well construction and SPS or SURF installation to be undertaken prior to the rig arriving at the location.
There are many benefits to pre-installing a Neodrill ICON Conductor Anchor Node (CAN)
A production version of the CAN - the CAN-integrator - is a proven and cost effective satellite well solution. Shown here (minus the actual CAN) is the integration of a GE Wellhead, Flowbase & XT, and CompOcean Protection Structure
