Delivering safe and environmentally sound deepwater wells is not a choice. It is a requirement. It is a responsibility. And it takes commitment.

The Cytadel ZX™ electronically-actuated packer provides a gas-tight annular seal to protect against dangerous sustained casing pressure (SCP) build-up caused by compromised cement. The packer creates a secondary barrier that eliminates gas migration and decreases the likelihood of SCP-related blowouts. Remote actuation saves hours of rig time, and the V0-rated ZX seal eliminates SCP bleed-off operations for reduced production interruptions and lower operational costs over time.
