Aquaterra Energy has a long and successful track record in delivering comprehensive riser and conductor analysis for offshore drilling projects all over the world. We were approached by this North Sea Operator to give a second opinion on the suitability of a 30” x 1” conductor versus a 30” x 2” conductor in a water depth of 108 m.

Our client intended to drill and exploration well in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea using a jack-up rig. Having received conductor analysis from another company we were contacted to provide a second opinion on the use of a 30” x 2” conductor, an unusual requirement.
