General Meeting: Unconventional Subsea Well Abandonment: New Approaches
NOTE: This is a joint meeting with the Houston Chapter of the American Petroleum Institute (API).
ABSTRACT of Presentation
Mr. Burguieres will make a presentation on the new techniques and technology used to abandon wells in ultra-deep offshore waters.
It is now accepted that conventional methods (rig and riser) for subsea well abandonment are no longer economically feasible and that different tools and techniques need to be developed/adopted to decrease costs. Intervention systems, both riser based and riserless, offer access to wells in a cost efficient manner.
It is proposed that with proper implementation of tooling and materials conveyed through the intervention system, total days and costs can be further reduced. Adoption of non-cement plugging materials allows for some of these unconventional plug and abandonment (P&A) solutions. After the successful temporary abandonment (TA) of a critical deep water well in the Gulf of Mexico utilizing bullheaded resin plugs, a myriad of applications for normal well P&A can be construed.
