A highly effective temporary gel plug that enables you to isolate zones in the well
Whether you require zonal isolation or a temporary blocking plug, AXI-Zone can help.
AXI-Zone's simplistic design enables you to maintain pressure control or achieve temporary isolation with ease. This is a pumpable gel that becomes rigid within the well, forming a tight and reliable plug.
It is delivered as two components - a base and a retarder. Both are easily mixed using standard equipment, before being pumped into place either via coiled tubing or bullheading.
The retarder dosage can easily be adjusted to suit the delay in setting required.
A client in the Middle East approached Aubin requesting a solution to maintain pressure control whilst replacing a leaking valve on the wellhead.
Aubin’s AXI-Zone successfully formed a temporary plug, maintaining pressure control and allowing the wellhead to be quickly and safely repaired. Using this chemical technology meant that a workover rig was not required, providing an efficient and cost effective solution for the client.
