Retrievable Inflatable Bridge Plug (RIBP)

The Retrievable Inflatable Bridge Plug (RIBP), incorporates the same valving used on PIBP and ICP inflation valving system in conjunction with a DuraGRIP™ packer element, which provides bi directional sealing and anchoring.


The RIBP is an innovative design with an equalisation mechanism allowing the operator to equalize pressure across the packer, before activating the deflation mechanism. There are several methods of deployment such as drill pipe, coiled tubing and capillary tube (micro coil).
