This project will demonstrate the use of a bismuth based metal alloy as a more effective sealant to permanently prevent the leakage of gases from producing and abandoned oil and gas wells.
This demonstration of the alloy deployment method of sealing oil and gas wells should prove less expensive and more reliable than the traditional cement sealing methods, and will encourage oil and gas operators and industry regulators into adopting this technology.
This technology will significantly increase the service life of wells, creating economic benefits, while enhancing the environmental performance of the industry.
The demonstration will also promote the use of innovative well sealing methods internationally where market potential is vast.
Anticipated Environmental Benefits: This project will significantly reduce GHGs and air emissions from producing and abandoned wells for the oil and gas sector in Canada.
