The Stronghold™ systems provide an economical and effective alternative to traditional P&A. By eliminating the need for milling, Archer’s Stronghold™ systems deliver a step-change in efficiency and effectiveness for P&A and other technologies.

Stronghold systems

  • Barricade™: Archer’s field proven Barricade system perforates, washes, and cements the annulus, creating a rock-to-rock barrier in just one trip.
  • Defender™ : Archer's field proven barrier test system enables operators to perforate and test annular barrier.
  • Rampart™ : Archer’s ground-breaking cup-less system perforates, cleans, and cements the annulus, creating a rock-to-rock barrier in just one trip.
