NuWave Industries Inc. is an innovative leader in the field of facility decommissioning and abandonment.
At the core of our business is our revolutionary, patented hydro-cutting system, also known as water jet cutting. Compared to traditional cut-and-cap methods, the NuWave process offers increased safety, minimal environmental disturbance, and significant savings in time and money.
Well Bore Cut & Caps
The time it takes for the area to return to its natural state is dramatically reduced.
Due to the self-cooling attributes and lack of an ignition source, abrasive cutting is a safer method of cutting in potentially explosive atmospheres or around flammable materials.
Our use of only water and natural abrasives means no contaminants go into the ground.

Here’s what our customers have to say about the NuWave process:
We expect that final costs for the recent surface abandonment program will come in 30 to 40% under what we would have done using a hoe and welder.
Approximately 93 well bores were abandoned using the NuWave cut-and-cap hydro-cutting method with no accidents or incidents. We saved over $500,000 using this method compared to the conventional method using a large excavation and a welder. Time was also saved as we were able to complete up to 13 cut-and-cap operations in one day.

I have found NuWave to provide superior workmanship to aid in the abandonment process - the cold cut, water jet method has proved to be safer than traditional welding methods and saves considerable time/risk concerning ground disturbance. I would definitely recommend NuWave to anyone looking to increase workload while minimizing risk and hazards related to traditional cut-and-cap methods.

We have recently used the NuWave system to cut and cap wells in south and central Alberta. We found this system to be very fast, safe, and efficient with minimal ground disturbance issues. In one case, we were requested to do a cut 4 m below grade due to lease fill. This was done with essentially the same amount of ground disturbance as a 2 m cut. I highly recommend this system for cutting and capping wells and abandoned pipelines. I will continue to use NuWave in the future.
