Welltec’s newest technology, the Well Cutter™, has once again received honors; this time winning the Intervention Technology Award at this year’s ICoTA Well Intervention and Coiled Tubing Conference & Exhibition, which was held in The Woodlands, Texas at the end of March. Brian Schwanitz, Senior Chairman of ICoTA, presented the Intervention Technology Award to Alex McKay receiving it on behalf of Welltec after an excellent presentation of the novel Well Cutter™ and its capabilities.
The Well Cutter™ is an innovative, inherently safer tool that enables efficient and safe drill pipe, liner, tubing and casing recovery operations without the need for explosives. The winner’s trophy was exhibited at Welltec’s stand alongside a sample piece of cut pipe, recovered cuttings and a set of cutter blades, and drew a lot of attention. Visitors were impressed with the smooth cut surface of the pipe sample and the fine, sand-like debris that is the byproduct of the cutting operation.
