"JMAN, It doesn't say what kind of charge it was. Also remember the information in the PA report might not always be 100% accurate. Depending on multiple factors (Operator, Industry Economics, Type of Well, Location, and Regulatory Supervision)…"

"It doesn't say. My understanding is that the most common cutting of casing is a shaped charge. Its quick, easy and cost effective. With a casing salvage operation there is no reason to have a pretty cut. You only need a milled cut if you are…"

"Thanks Nixon.  I happened to already have the plugging report but unfortunately it doesn't tell me how it was actually cut.  I called the company that did the P&A and I am currently waiting on a return phone call.  Thanks…"

"The casing got stuck and they had to cut it at 2450' or so. I know of three ways to get the pipe if it gets stuck and that's to chemically cut it, mechanically cut it or the use explosives at that depth.  The serial number is…"

P & A laws for Louisiana

I am trying to find information about how a well was P & A'd in Louisiana in 1989.  I need to know if explosives were used or if the casing was mechanically cut.  The cutting took place at 2450'.  Are explosives still allowed and if not, what year did they make it illegal?  I have the P & A paperwork and it isn't noted what took place.  See More
