Damaged Tubing Repair
After several years of production the integrity of a tubing string can be compromised. Either through mechanical fatigue, heat dilatation or corrosion, a leak can appear. For tubing sizes 4 ½” or larger, the Saltel Patch can be used to repair any holes or damage to the tubing. By running a Saltel patch the necessity to pull the tubing is eliminated, thus minimizing the downtime associated with a full work over operation.
