TNG & MBC Complete First Wellhead Repair

TNG & MBC Complete First Wellhead Repair

Dec 20

WAIRAKEI NEW ZEALAND: December 20, 2016 / — TNG Enterprises Inc. (“TNG”), a global geothermal valve and wellhead service company, with Century Drilling & Energy Services (NZ) Ltd (“MB Century”), the preeminent geothermal service provider in New Zealand have completed a wellhead repair using TNG’s proprietary rigless wellhead repair solution, the Geothermal Wellhead Equipment Repair Tool (GWERT).

TNG’s GWERT has completed nearly 400 valve changes across the US, Philippines and Indonesia over the past 18 years.  Partnering with TNG enabled MB Century to expeditiously service a wellhead issue on a well near Kawerau, New Zealand for a major operator.

A significant effort to containerize the GWERT was a critical first step to the success of the entire operation. Praise is deserved for both TNG’s and MB Century’s team for getting this done seamlessly.  The GWERT was rigged up at the well site without issue. The wellbore was cleaned by running the scraper / mill. TNG assembled the 13-3/8” packer, re-entered the well, and set the packer which enabled the MB Century team to safely remove a section of casing and install all equipment as required. Once the repair was complete TNG retrieved the packer and demobilized from the site.

“This was a significant milestone in our joint efforts to establish this service offering in New Zealand. Not only were we successful, but have now proven this technology as a safe viable alternative for all valve and wellhead maintenance throughout the country.  We look forward to working alongside MB Century on many future geothermal valve replacements soon” said Patrick Hanson, Director of Sales and Marketing for TNG.

MB Century is delighted to work with TNG in introducing the world-class GWERT service to New Zealand” said Marcel Manders, Chief Executive of MB Century. “The success of this wellhead repair provides the New Zealand market with an exciting, safe and cost effective alternative to well head and casing repairs.”
