Astrimar and Rawwater Collaboration Agreement

Astrimar signs new collaboration agreement with Rawwater at the SPE Aberdeen Well Abandonment 2019 conference

Following on from our previous work with Rawwater as part of two Innovate UK projects to qualify advanced bismuth alloys for plugging and abandonment and other sealing applications, Astrimar are delighted to be continuing this relationship to support the deployment of high integrity bismuth alloy plugs and metal seals.

The Innovate UK funding has supported both the Rawwater qualification testing of the bismuth alloys and the development of the Astrimar STEM-flow tool which can be used to evaluate long term well plug integrity for P&A design and to support qualification of new plug technologies towards the Oil and Gas UK guidelines including a 3000 year life. Both parties were presenting at the SPE Aberdeen Well Abandonment 2019 conference providing feedback on work to date.

Moving forwards the collaboration agreement will enable Astrimar and Rawwater to provide a combined plug service provision with well application bespoke plug performance forecasts.
