Most recently SUPRA worked with a multinational client where they were experiencing massive sand producting well causing from a corroded 35 years old well casing. In reviewing downhole borehole camera, SUPRA found a 10×10 cm corroded point at a depth of 70 metres. As the cost for drilling a new wells are more expensive than to repair the existing well, SUPRA proposed a double relining program for the well. This technique worked 100% perfectly in stopping the influx of formation sand through the casing and saved a lot of time and cost to our respective clients.
