Hydrocarbon Well Plugging and Capping – 12/10/2021

Hydrocarbon Well Services, well plugging and capping experts, are currently plugging a well for the US Environmental Protection Agency in the Ohio River. Hydrocarbon ingenuity allowed us to do this on a barge in the river.

We loaded our rig onto the barge and then placed the pumps and equipment.



The barge set sail and arrived at our destination 10 hours later.


We found wooden rods in this old oil well.


Still working to get to attainable bottom.

These oil booms were used at the Deep Water Horizon event. Kinda cool!
