First P3A Perfect Cement Plug Placement Installation Carried Out

September 18, 2014 at 8:43 AM

During September 2014 on land in the USA the first P3A Perfect Cement Plug Placement Tool system was installed. The job entailed setting a single +/-2500ft balanced cement plug covering the entire length of the open hole on +/-5000ft of 5" drill pipe and leaving +/-2500ft of 2.7/8" steel tubing in the well as a permanent abandonment plug. The well was vertical and circa 7500ft deep. The job was carried out successfully with all the expected indicators of operational success observed. It is expected that at least 2 more similar installations will occur for the same client in the coming months. Due to the Tight Hole nature of the well the client, location and precise well details cannot be released.
