Your Advocate for Cost-Effective, Precision-Managed P&A Services

Over 36 years of experience in the Oil & Gas Industry

Plugged Right Consulting provides consulting services for plugging and abandoning oil & gas wells. From regulatory filing through well site supervision, we are your on-site advocate ensuring all plugs are set properly, saving you both time and money with accurate daily and final contractor cost. 

Plugged Right Consulting

Our Vision

Plugging and abandoning a well is low on the priority list of an oil and gas company and is often passed on to an already overloaded production engineer to manage and oversee,  Our vision is to manage all facets of the P&A process for our client.  Once on-site operations begin, our level of detail in the daily reporting of all plugs set, as well as associated cumulative costs, eliminates the possibility of hidden expenses upon job completion.

I have worked with Greg Gurley since 2005.  Together we have designed countless numbers of completions, P&A’s, abandonment and all aspects of completions while he was employed with various Operators all over the L-48.  I have always found Greg to be thorough, reasonable and focused on the engineering and Design aspects of the completions projects that he has designed.   Greg is a Team Player and always establishes a good working relationship with others involved in the projects he has overseen and has never shied away from a challenge. 

I personally highly recommend Greg to efficiently handle any type of Completion or Remedial operation task that is put in his charge.
