Our Integrated Well Abandonment services bring industry-leading experts, technologies, and management solutions to transform your P&A campaign into a seamless final step in your well’s lifecycle.
We are committed to supporting and enhancing your well abandonment programs in several significant ways.
Develop and enhance your well abandonment philosophy with the help of Baker Hughes Reservoir Technology Services (RTS). Our RTS experts help you interpret regulations and guidelines; provide insights into the best abandonment approach for a given field; evaluating the utilization of salt caps, shales, cement, mechanical barriers, and combined plugs to optimize your well’s final barrier designs.
Reduce uncertainties while isolating your zones of interest with wide-ranging well integrity evaluation tools. By deploying the right combination of integrity evaluation and analysis, you’re assured more efficient well abandonment operations that protect the environment and your bottom line.
Install permanent barriers across the well to fully isolate all reservoir producing or injecting zones from the surface. Baker Hughes can bring together fit-for-purpose perforating technology, mechanical barriers, through-tubing barrier placement methods and cementing, or alternative barrier materials to deliver reliable, cost-effective solutions.
Minimize the time required to abandon a well. Permanent isolation of all intermediate zones with flow potential involves major steps in the well plug and abandonment process. The application of industry-leading well intervention cutting, pulling and milling technologies and collaborative engagement drives down the time to abandon a well and enables rapid adaptation to unforeseen circumstances.
Save time and money with our rigless and riserless solutions while installing the near-surface plug and removing the wellhead and conductor. Our tubular experts deploy the right equipment and services to effectively remove tubing, casing, and conductors. Well abandonment is part of the Baker Hughes Integrated Well Services approach to managing your field operations safely, reliably, and cost effectively. Our offerings in well abandonment are unique for providing cost focus where required, and value focus where you need it. For operational environments ranging from onshore to offshore to subsea, we provide abandonment solutions with a proven track record of significant performance improvement.
