Based on the success of the Halliburton Evo-Trieve® retrievable bridge plug design, the MEV0™ mid-expansion retrievable bridge plug is a high-performance retrievable monobore plugging device that can be set at a predetermined point anywhere in the tubing or casing. With more than a decade of field-proven success, the Evo-Trieve bridge plug continues to meet operator requirements for reliable intervention solutions. The MEV0 mid-expansion retrievable bridge plug offers the same proven features as the original Evo-Trieve bridge plug design and is V0-qualified per API11D1 4th Edition for up to 5,000 psi and 212°F with the capability to pass tighter restrictions than standard bridge plug offerings. It features a chassis that includes large slip and element footprints for improved pressure-holding capability and minimized tubing/casing damage. The MEV0 mid-expansion retrievable bridge plug can be deployed via slickline, e-line, coiled tubing, workstring, and the RELAY™ digital slickline system and can be retrieved with industry-standard GS pulling tools.
