The Conductor Anchor Node (CAN) enables Horizontal Drilling into Shallow Reservoirs
The CAN-ductor is designed to provide a massive vertical, lateral and moment capacity to the well foundation. This capacity is developed over the relatively shallow depth of the CAN, even in soft soils.
Shallow kick-off and inclination can be started at the departure from the CAN. The shallow capacity is a property of the CAN that enables the development of shallow reservoirs.
This has been proven on the first attempt by drilling a 1400m horizontal section into a reservoir at a depth of only 250m below seabed.
