Cement Retainer

The Cement Retainer is a drillable packer that is most commonly used for remedial cementing applications. The retainer acts as a plug after cementing, this isolates the newly cemented area from hydrostatic pressure and traps squeeze pressure on the cement below. The tool can be set mechanically or on wireline and can be used for other light service applications.



  • Valve automatically closes when stinger is removed, locking in squeeze pressure
  • Converts to bridge plug
  • Mechanical or wireline set
  • Surface controlled valve
  • Improves squeeze cement jobs
  • Increases plug and abandon reliability
