Subsea Wellhead - seal assembly retrieval
I was looking at the rate of failure in pulling the seal assembly from subsea wellheads.
Take this situation: the 9-5/8" casing needs to be cut and pulled and a sidetrack needs to be drilled and cased off afterwards.
Therefore a new seal should be installed in the same place and no damage should occur on the sealing area.
Does anyone have experienced a failure in this operation?
I was also wondering what others buy as insurances.
Does anyone get extensions to be able to isolate the damaged seal and then create a dummy seat for the new casing hanger?
When talking to one of our wellhead providers, it has been mentioned that some years back emergency casing hangers were secured by a Major.
Thanks for the feedback.
