QUP Retrievable Bridge Plugs

Quinn Ultimate Packers


Close-up of two sections of the QUP Retrievable Bridge Plug
Our Retrievable Plugs are designed to be set or pulled (with a GS pulling-tool) using e-line, slickline or coil. They provide the same level of well closure as a conventional plug.

This patented system allows for wells to be sealed and re-opened at a fraction of the cost by using slickline to pull them! Our plugs can be set on a slickline using our own Non-Explosive Setting System (NESS). This means they can be fully deployed without a blasting tech! They can also be set on deviated or horizontal wells using a roller-system along with Coil Tubing.

  • Conventional bridge plugs are very labour-intensive and costly to remove. Save time and money by going with Avalon's Retrievable Bridge Plugs.
  • The QUP has a wide range of applications including Plug, Straddle, Hanger, AR-Lift and Choke.
  • Every QUP is built to the very highest standards, and all conform to NACE MR0175 specifications.

Primary Applications

Plug / Straddle / Hanger / AR-Lift / Choke


QUP Plug
  • Well bore isolation as a mechanical barrier for pressure control.
  • Pressure control for snubbing operations or wellhead changeovers.
  • Sour gas or CO2 zone supression.
  • Offshore collision control
QUP Straddle
  • Zone isolation for water / CO2 / H2S shut off using straddle equipment and the large thru-bore of the QUP to maintain production.
QUP Hanger
  • Suspend P/T guages in smooth bore tubing (i.e. hydril pipe).
  • Hanger system for other recorders / chokes / siphon strings (optimized with large bore I.D.).
QUP AR-Lift
  • Hanger system for artificial lift systems (velocity string), systems for improving lift capacity below the production packer.
QUP Choke
  • Bottom sub can be equipped with an orifice choke, check valve or pump open bottom sub.
Other
  • Suitable for sour gas environments (NACE MR0175 / ISO 15156).
  • Standard high temperature ratings of 300°F / 150°C in HSN & 400°F / 205°C in Viton.
  • Sized to allow travel through restrictions and landing nipples.
  • Pump-through options available with check valves.
