Crimped or welded around the casing, Saltel annulus packers are expandable steel permanent packers designed to seal annular sections
Saltel Xpandable Steel Packers are stainless steel annulus casing barriers designed to isolate annulus sections.
The plastic deformation of stainless steel sleeves combined with composite elastomer skin ensures an effective seal, a robust and permanent annulus barrier.
Xpandable Steel packers help during and after cementing operations to guarantee a perfect annular integrity. In such cases, they can be run (sometimes in conjunction with cement stage tools) for single or multiple stage cementing, off-bottom cementing, or cement backup.
Xpandable Steel Packers can also be used to isolate fracturing stages during openhole ball-drop multistage fracturing operations, or for long term annulus zonal isolation requirements, such as reservoir compartmentalization, acid stimulation, and plug and abandonment.
