Plasma Based Technology At Itf Showcase 2016

Plasma based technology at ITF Showcase 2016

GA Drilling, pioneers in electric plasma technology, is delighted to be presenting their “game changing” PLASMABIT Technology at ITF Technology Showcase in Aberdeen, UK, 8-9 March 2016. The theme of this collaborative, innovation and technology focused exhibition and conference is "Technology's Role in Transforming Costs and Increasing Efficiency Now".
Tomas Kristofic, Chief Technology Officer of GA Drilling will deliver a “PLASMABIT Milling Technology" presentation during the “Well Plugging & Abandonment” session. The presentation is scheduled for the 1:45pm - 3:05pm time slot. GA Drilling Advisory Board members, Nigel Jenkins (Energy Business Improvement & Growth Consultant) and Iain Pittman (Senior Well Abandonment & Intervention Engineer),  will join Tomas at the ITF exhibition at GA Drilling stand No. 36.
Nigel Jenkins: “PLASMABIT technology creates a fundamentally new way of material disruption with a sophisticated combination of proven physical, chemical and mechanical procedures. It is a disruptive technology that will improve the HSE and cost efficiency of the P&A process.”

The presentation, as well as of the exhibition, explains how PLASMABIT technology for enhanced casing section milling addresses the P&A cost and efficiency challenges. Utilising a plasma generator producing high temperature plasma stream, the technology enables rapid steel, cement and rock structural degradation. The main advantages include significant time and cost savings through the simplified logistics and lower costs of rig-less operation; production of tiny steel particles instead of swarf, and minimal tool wear and tear. Fully automated coiled tubing infrastructure also enhances SHE performance.

The GA Drilling team look forward to engaging with delegates at this key event for the industry.
