Open hole annular cement packers can solve many issues with cementing operations. The annulus cementing packer provides superior zonal isolation in both simple and complex well environments. The deployment of Xpandable Steel Packers mitigates the risks of fluid or gas migration through the cement. It simplifies the well construction process, and it provides significant cost savings. As a result, The Steel Packer alternative allows a substantial reduction of rig time and materials.
Saltel Xpandable ECP – The annular cement packer
Saltel Xpandable ECP is a robust, expandable stainless steel packer. We designed it to set at low pressure and achieve zonal isolation. You can use Saltel ECP for any cementing operation, preventing migrations through the annulus.
Why choosing Xpandable Steel ECP?
Firstly, the Xpandable Steel ECP provides a significant steel barrier between the casing and the borehole. This cement packer prevents migrations in the annulus. It eliminates cross-flow during cementing operations, and eliminates gas migration when the cement is setting.
Secondly, Saltel ECP seals in various hole shapes and conditions. It includes ovalized, out of round, or irregular boreholes. (Severe washouts excluded).
Thirdly, our ECP preserves the casing characteristics. It avoids extra-connections, or casing ID reductions.
Moreover, our annulus cementing packer saves rig time with fast installation, on-demand expansion, and immediate sealing.
Then, the external casing packer minimizes non-productive time (NPT). Thanks to its robust construction, the ECP withstands reciprocation and rotation. It can overcome severe doglegs, cut windows, and tight spots.
