Intervention Technology Award Winners


March 22, 2017
BiSN Oil Tools
Wel-lok M2M™ WSO (Well Shut Off Tool)

BISN is a leading provider of metal to metal downhole sealing solutions to the oil and gas industry. Utilising their in-house groundbreaking modified thermite heater, BiSN is breaking the mould of traditional usage of elastomer seals and cement plugs for water shut off in oil and gas wells.

As an innovative and dynamic organisation providing new solutions to some age old problems, BiSN has the capacity to react to market demands. With experienced engineers as part of their team, they are finding multiple applications for their unique sealing Wel-lok M2M™ technology.

Entering the competition with the Wel-lok M2M™ WSO (Water Shut Off) tool, BiSN impressed the judges by the speed at which this new innovation has already been applied in the field, in a market notorious for reticence in the uptake of new products. The panel also recognised the value of BiSN’s Wel-lok M2M™ WSO capability to reduce local environmental impact and improve production whilst providing the engineer with an easily deployable tool. The high statistics of well life extension data undoubtedly helped to confirm this BiSN tool as a firm winner.

The uniquely developed BiSN technology, branded ‘Wel-lok M2M™’ simply put means sealing the well with metal to metal (M2M). It has been run in numerous locations around the world in both on and offshore environments.

ICoTA International’s Annual Intervention Technology Award recognizes outstanding technical innovation or application of technology for well intervention. The application of the new intervention technology or technique should demonstrate; reduced risk, increased production, improved safety or minimized environmental impact.

Paul Carragher, CEO of BiSN received the winner’s trophy from Steve Deshotels, Senior Chairman of ICoTA at the SPE/ICoTA Well Intervention and Coiled Tubing Conference & Exhibition, held at the George R. Brown in Houston.
