Unconventional Resources

In the abandonment of wells, inflatable bridge plugs or cement retainers can reduce the cost through rig time savings. In select cases, there is no need to run gauge rings or junk baskets since the inflatable packer OD to casing ID clearance is larger than that of conventional packers. The elimination of nonproductive rig time using an inflatable packer as the abandonment plug has been proven to more than offset the tool cost differential.
