Plug & Abandon: Well Abandonment & Decommissioning | Schlumberger

Integrated Well Abandonment

End smarter by starting here

Integrate well abandonment solutions for land, offshore, and subsea

As reservoirs mature and output levels change, oil and gas operators must regularly reassess the performance of every asset in production.
Integrated well abandonment services help meet your obligations to make uneconomic wells safe and to guard against potential liabilities for the long term.

Secure the future profitability of production operations


Well abandonment eliminates the ongoing costs of maintaining uneconomic oil and gas platforms, shut-in wells, and aging subsea infrastructure. Restoring the integrity of the reservoir caprock by sealing each well with a permanent, leak-free barrier enables you to meet legal obligations and minimize liabilities once and for all. And because any intervention can be a complex, high-risk operation, Schlumberger offers a fully managed service for well abandonment campaigns of any scale, with key technical offerings designed to keep costs—and risks—firmly under control.
