Get assured wellbore isolation as part of your plug-and-abandonment (P&A) operation with P&A well barriers from baker Hughes. Our integrated suite of mechanical barriers and cement retainer systems provide safe, efficient, cost-effective abandonment solutions that are matched to your specific well requirements.
Isolate your well under the most extreme conditions
Work with our engineers to select from a comprehensive range of bridge plugs, packers, and cement systems that will give you the optimal solution for either permanent isolation or temporary abandonment.
- Our mechanical bridge plugs deliver reliable performance in your high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) environments. Get assured performance with bridge plugs rated up to 25,000 psi (1,724 bar) and 500°F (260°C) at V0 classification.
- Our inflatable packer systems provide reliable isolation for temporary deepwater well abandonment. The Blue Whale™ inflatable service packer (ISP) replaces a broad range of packers and secondary tools with a single tool that operates in a range of hole inner diameters (IDs), thus reducing your rig time, storage requirements, and transportation costs.
- Our cement systems are engineered and deployed to ensure a robust mechanical barrier under any of your abandonment specifications. Our cementing experts develop and test Set for Life™ cement spacer systems to deliver a gas-tight cement seal in your well, with no risk of shrinkage. And for your remote P&A applications with limited space for storage and mixing equipment. Our Liquid Stone™ liquid cement system can be batch-mixed at your well site and efficiently pumped using only a coiled-tubing unit.
