BSEE confirms well sealed with temporary plug in gulf

The US Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement confirmed Energy Resource Technology LLC (ERT) temporarily sealed Well No. 2 using a temporary set bridge plug.

The tool isolated the lower part of the well. More work is needed to permanently plug and abandon the well.

BSEE has overseen ERT’s work since the loss of well control on Ship Shoal Block 225 Platform B Well No. 2 (OGJ Online, July 10, 2010).

The well, which was flowing natural gas, is 74 miles southwest of Port Fourchon, La. The platform lies in 146 ft of water.

A BSEE overflight on July 13 confirmed that no sheen was present. The well had been flowing gas, which was stopped July 11 by pumping drilling fluids into the well.
