Bridge Plugs

Bridge Plugs

A bridge plug is a downhole tool composed primarily of slips, a plug mandrel, and a rubber sealing element. It is utilized in a subsurface manner in the lower zone of a wellbore, where the bridge plug is run and set in casing. This isolates the upper zone from the lower, preventing fluids or gas from the lower zone from reaching an upper zone of the well while still allowing the upper section to be tested, cemented, stimulated, produced, or injected either permanently or temporarily within the wellbore.

Bridge plugs are typically manufactured from a number of materials that each have their own applicable benefits and disadvantages. Cast iron bridge plugs are typically used for permanent applications.

Silver Fox offers bridge plugs that can be set with wireline or hydro-mechanical means. Contact Silver Fox to discuss your specific needs for drilling bridge plugs.
