Real Time Monitoring of Plug Barriers during Long Time Suspension for Temporary P&A

Overview

The client needed to perform Temporary P&A of a well located in the Norwegian continental shelf. In addition the operator will remove the Xmas tree for it to be refurbished and used on another location. The operator planned to set two barrier plugs to temporarily abandon the well; one shallow- and one deep-set plug. The planned suspension time for the well were estimated to be 3-5 years. Monitoring of the barrier integrity was required in order to comply with industry regulations and to execute this operation in a safe manner.

Verification of a Shallow set Plug for Xmas Tree Maintenance

Overview

The client needed to perform a valve changeout on the X-mas tree. To be able to execute this operation in a safe and effective manner, there was a need to set two shallow barrier plugs above the Down Hole Safety Valve (DHSV). The plugs were planned to be run on Slickline and set with conventional timer-based setting tools. Since the Retrievable bridge plugs were to be set close to each other, conventional volume control could not accurately deliver a good leak test of the barrier.The optimum method to assure a proven barrier required monitoring of the small volume between the installed bridge plugs during leak testing
