It’s a known fact today that if you take preventative action it’s substantially less costly than corrective or remedial action after the fact, in other words, what you have spent to prevent a spill is much cheaper than the clean-up cost down the line, in fact, we use the business case analysis that’s 10 times greater cost to do remedial clean-up fix up work than to do it right at the start. Believe that Katch Kan’s an example of really thinking at the preventative level.

Akita41 Case Study Summary


Based on the data collected during the ETV test, the Katch Kan system collected and retained drilling fluids released from the drill pipe during four tripping events resulting in less than 0.1% of the released fluids escaping to the surrounding environment



In December 2016, a Katch Kan field technician visited the rig and inspected the condition of the matting. The matting had slightly faded in colour, however, the promised performance was still intact. The customer was pleased with the performance and quality and requested to upgrade the rest of the rig floor with Katch Mat.
