The objective of this project was to place two plugs, as part of the abandonment of Nedmag’s VE-2 salt well. VE-2 was drilled in 1982 and a first plug was placed in 1998.
The operations were executed using BPC’s pipe puller. First a cement wiper plug which had been there since 1998 was drilled out. A cement plug was placed at the depth of the Vlieland Clay. The 10 ¾” casing was cut and the top 268 m were pulled out of hole, a cement plug was placed to seal off the Chalk.
All operations were completed without incidents or accidents. Currently the well is being monitored, in 2024 the environmental plug will be placed, finalizing the abandonment.
