Following successful projects of supplying Compact Wellheads in Thailand and Myanmar, WOM AP victoriously entered into the competitive market of Vietnam.
In the last quarter of 2016, WOM AP proudly announced they signed a contract with Murphy Phuong Nam Oil Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of Murphy Exploration & Production Company International, in which it will supply 3 sets of 13-5/8” 10,000 psi, Stage 2 Compact Wellheads for the exploration and development of Block 11-2/11 in offshore Vietnam. The two exploration wells will be drilled to total depths varying from 2700m to 4500m with evaluation, plug and abandonment to follow. The project will commence in April 2017 and will last for about 80 days.
WOM’s Compact Wellhead is a single bore wellhead system that utilizes mandrel casing hangers with slip-lock as contingency and internal lockdown pack-off seal assemblies installed through a BOP. This allows operators to run the wellhead through the rotary table with no flame cutting, welding or other time-consuming installation techniques. The internal lockdown mechanism of the pack-off eliminates the multiple potential leak paths against traditional lockdown screws.
WOM AP is thrilled to be a part of this project and we are sure it will serve as a cornerstone to more projects in Vietnam.
