Plug and Abandonment: Protecting the Land for Future Generations
P&A Work, also known as plug and abandonment is a constant and growing market segment for Drilling Equipment Resources.

This process requires a drilling rig specifically set up for this type of work or a well service “work over” rig. Drilling Equipment Resources has several necessary components in stock to support this market including a top swivel and high pressure plunger and piston style injection pumps. The mixture of high solids grout and Portland cement is pumped at high pressures through the rotary or “Kelly” hose and through the swivel down the drill string to certain depths where a special designed plug is set. These components are high wear type items and also require component replacement and repair.
