Waterjet cutting has revolutionized the oil and gas abandonment process. NuWave's mobile, natural abrasive waterjet cutters have proven themselves more efficient and cost-effective than the traditional torch cutting method.

Our system is faster and safer. With each wellbore taking approximately 30 minutes to cut and cap. Our process saves our clients time and money. Below is an overview of how we provide superior Cut & Cap services to our oil and gas clients throughout North America.
