Technology Readiness Level: In Development
Workover & Completion


Superior cutting, milling, perforating and beyond

Conventional workover & completion techniques use brute force consumables such as mechanical steel grinding, explosive charges, and harsh chemicals. Foro Energy uses high power lasers to rapidly and precisely cut away steel and cement.

  • 2-4 times faster than conventional
  • Ability to perform any job in single downhole pass without multiple trips or consumables
  • Higher precision cutting without damage to adjacent material
  • No explosives or harsh chemicals
  • Ability to handle exotic metals

Scale Removal

Downhole lasers can also be utilized for flow assurance applications. Foro is actively developing downhole laser systems for removal of scale or restrictive materials, such as:

  • Barium Sulfate
  • Calcium Carbonate
  • Wax Paraffin
  • Mercury Contamination
