Plug-and-Abandon Operations

Abstract

Plug-and-abandon operations are usually governed by the relevant regulatory agency of the country or region where the well is located. Regulations specify such things as the location and number of plugs to be set and the depth of the tubing and casing strings to be removed. Regulations may vary according to the well’s location on land or its water depth offshore.
