Retrievable bridge plug
The SIMultra retrievable bridge plug delivers both proven sealing integrity and dependable retrievability, even in challenging downhole conditions. Fully certified to ISO 14310:2008 grade V0 and Quality Grade Q1, the SIMultra plug incorporates a unique proprietary hybrid metal-elastomer seal. This innovative seal design eliminates permanent elastomer setting and elastomer decompression—and their adverse effects on plug retrieval—while providing a full metal contact.
Available for industry-standard tubulars ranging from 4 1/2 to 7 in, the SIMultra plug is performance rated to 350 degF, 10,000 psi, and full sour service capability to readily meet the extremes of today’s energy production, including HPHT and gas wells. Bidirectional high-expansion and high-load slips ensure secure setting at any well deviation.
By using a proprietary nonexplosive tool for setting and retrieval, the SIMultra plug can be deployed in vertical and horizontal wells using all conventional conveyance methods. For slickline operations, the downhole intelligent decision module enhances setting assurance by using time, temperature, pressure, and tool movement measurements to identify the correct setting depth.
Avoiding reliance solely on elastomer elements gives SIMultra plugs not only the smallest running diameter in their class but also enables them to retract to smaller than their original diameter for reliable deployment and recovery across all installations.
