This paper describes the various steps involved to safely suspend a HPHT well and to repair a number of leaks in the production tubing. The tubing leaks were the result of corrosion and occurred over a two hundred meter interval.

Thorough analysis and associated difficulties to resolve this problem lead to the approach of cementing the tubing in place. Thus allowing the operator to test this gas well and increase the knowledge of the reservoir to develop this field. The process and solution will be described in great detail and will serve as the basis for similar problems in the future.
