Do you get permanent retainers removed?

Permanent retainers aren’t truly permanent. They’re only called “permanent” because they can’t be removed easily, unlike removable retainers. Permanent retainers do eventually wear out, but they’ve been known to last for upwards of 20 years. When they wear out, they can be removed and replaced.

How do you pump a balanced cement plug?

Pumping steps for balanced cement plug are as follows:

  1. Pump 50 bbl of spacer.
  2. Pump 37.9 bbl of cement.
  3. Pump 23.1 bbl of spacer.
  4. Pump 69.b bbl of drilling mud. ** You may under displace 2-3 bbl to create cement falling effect in drill pipe. **
  5. Pull slowly above TOC.
  6. Circulate bottom up.
  7. Pull out of hole to surface.

Anyway, the EZSV appeared to set correctly (and was apparently wireline tagged) but was not tagged when RIH with whipstock.

Does the ezsv set correctly with Whipstock?

Anyway, the EZSV appeared to set correctly (and was apparently wireline tagged) but was not tagged when RIH with whipstock. Only theory so far is that plug setting mechanism was affected by the fact that we had a solid barrier close beneath with incompressible fluid between the plug and the cement.
