Our unique solutions
In 2015 Oilenco engineers were challenged to develop a new well isolation plug that could be set within the annulus (and now production bore) profile of a subsea tubing hanger. The brief included an expanding type seal element.
The hybrid plug was developed with the expanding seal element which allows the simplicity of a blanking plug in terms of deployment and method of sealing but the integrity assurance of a bridge plug. The plug runs under gauge downhole until it hits the 'no go' where it then can be set using the expanding seal technology, this avoids any damage to the seals.
