Barrier System

Archer Oiltools introduced its Stronghold line of products, a series of perforating, washing, and cementing systems for a permanent annular barrier. The systems consist of the Barricade system, which perforates, washes, and cements the annulus; the Defender, a ­barrier-test system that enables operators to perforate and test annular barriers; and the Rampart, a new cupless system that perforates, cleans, and cements the annulus. The systems eliminate the need for cutting, milling, and pulling tubulars out of the well, ensuring protection and long-term safety for the environment.
