When it comes to our clients’ inactive wells, there’s no such thing as one size fits all. As a core service line, we provide passionate, experienced and knowledgeable experts throughout the process. We provide professional services including project coordination, consistently successful execution and high-level management. Along with specialized equipment and cutting edge technology, we utilize proven methods to execute all aspects of the end-of-life well/facilities/lease and access program. Our solutions are tailored to meet our clients’ specific project needs while minimizing the cost of their inactive well programs and abandonment options.

When a well reaches the end of its producing life, operators must safely abandon these wells in accordance with regulations. Well abandonment programs include designing and engineering a well bore abandonment program that includes any or all of the following:

  • Installation or removal of all downhole tools
  • Running scrapers and/or gauge rings inside the wellbore
  • Logging, perforating for remedial work and /or zonal abandonment
  • Hydraulically isolating porous formations
  • Cementing the wellbore as required, ending with surface abandonment (cut and cap)
  • Disposal and/or recycling of the wellhead
  • Removal of all risers, pipelines and surface equipment
  • Surface land left to be reclaimed to its original state

Our in-house project teams are experienced and fully capable to provide service to our clients through all stages of end-of-life activity: suspension, abandonment, remediation and final reclamation. For each phase, we collaborate with our clients to develop both the project plan and the specific well program design. Contact us to start the conversation.
