CIS set to provide conductor driving services in Kazakhstan

Conductor Installation Services (CIS) has been awarded a multi-million-dollar contract by Weatherford Kazakhstan to provide conductor driving services in Kazakhstan.

The contract requires CIS, an Acteon company, to carry out up to eight conductor driving operations annually on wells offshore in the Caspian Sea for a number of major operators.

CIS will utilise 90kJ hydraulic hammers to drive the conductors. Two hydraulic hammer spreads, together with drive chasers and drive shoes, have been delivered to Kazakhstan where they will be based throughout the programme.

The first installation operation is scheduled to commence during the next few weeks.
