Add Energy and Trendsetter Engineering's RWIS technology nominated in prestigious World Oil Awards


10 Sep 2019



For 18 years, the World Oil Awards have recognized and honored the upstream energy industry’s leading innovators and innovations and recognized step changes in technology that have made a lasting impact.

The RWIS has been shortlisted in the 2019 category "Best Health, Safety, Environment / Sustainable Development - Offshore Award" together with three other nominees.

"This is yet another confirmation of the successful job that has been done developing technology that will change the drilling industry and allow for safer and more cost-effective operations,'' says Morten H. Emilsen, Senior Vice President, Add Energy.

The Relief Well Injection Spool (RWIS) is a patented specialist subsea equipment that enables operators to stop a blowout from prolific reservoirs safely and efficiently via a single relief well. This is made possible with the RWIS by increasing the pump rate of kill mud into the blowing well by removing the bottle-neck caused by restrictive choke and kill lines from the surface vessel to the seabed.
