Rigless Well
Abandonment
Isolates all zones and casing annuli with 100% permanent seal
Eliminate disposal of tubulars
Efficiently remove wellhead and other hardware to required
depth below the mudline
Operable from a DSV or 'vessel of opportunity‘ with wireline
and pumping capabilities
Significantly reduce abandonment costs

1. Once connected to the wellhead
and tested does not require
disconnection regardless of the
number of times the equipment
needs to be recovered to the
surface vessel
2. Plug retrieval barrel (could allow
wellhead plugs to retrieved and
stored at the wellhead) Saves
time and vessel cost.
