Project Description

Arkema hires Well Engineering Partners for various well intervention and drilling services. Arkema is a world-class producer in most of its product lines, including PMMA, fluorochemicals, hydrogen peroxide, organic peroxides and molecular sieves, and a regional leader in others, including chlorochemicals in Europe. One of the Sodium Chloride Brine Producing wells needed a 450 m sidetrack. This was fully designed, project managed and successfully completed by Well Engineering Partners on behalf of Arkema.
