Xpandable steel patch for effective water shut off 

Saltel expandable steel patch ensures effective water shut off. The casing patch eliminates or reduces water production without restricting the wellbore access. It seals the perforated zone without restricting production from the neighboring perforations. The patch provides a 100% effective seal even in damaged or worn casings.


Sealing unwanted perforations can eliminate expensive water production from unsolicited perforations or from damaged inflow control devices (ICDs). The expandable steel patch optimizes existing Enhanced Oil Recovery techniques, reduces gas production, and avoids cross-flow (communication between 2 reservoirs). This technology can also be used when converting a producing well into an injector.


Saltel Patch is a permanent solution to unwanted shut-off perforations. This expandable short-length tube comes up with high-quality stainless steel and elastomer outer skin with a profiled sealing system. Saltel Patch can be set with tubing, drill pipe, or smart coiled tubing. At depth, the Patch is expanded using a high-pressure inflatable packer and pushed against the casing to activate the outer seals. The setting tools are extracted to leave a pressure-resistant inner lining inside the well.
