General Services


  • SES PATCH specific expansion and setting process requires the intervention of skilled and qualified personnel. Saltel industries therefore provide a full field and operation service associated with the SES PATCH product.


  • The SES PACKERS are assembled as part of the casing string and are expanded either by increasing casing internal pressure or with a straddle setting tool.
  • Field engineers can supervise the SES PACKER expansion according to the setting procedure. Saltel industries can also provide the full expansion service.

Pressure Test Inflatable Packer Service

Saltel Industries developed and manufactures a range of high-pressure, high-temperature Inflatable Packers for well pressure testing. These high-performance packers are run down-hole via tubing, drill pipe or smart coiled tubing. Pressure is injected in the string and the packer inflates and seals the wellbore. The casing above the packer can then be pressure tested. These packers can be used to pressure test the well in order to locate a leak before patch operation, or to pressure test the patch after the setting, if there is no other leak above the sealed zone.

  • Depending on the nearness of an operational base, equipment and personnel mobilization can be immediate.

Dedicated Softwares (Job Planners)

All our jobs are simulated and prepared in our 'job planners' softwares. The job planners specific to SES Patch and SES Packers combine both the characteristics of the product to be installed, and the candidate well conditions.

During the operation the supervisor is guided by the job planners - an expert program anticipating on alternate solutions in case of downhole issues.

The supervisor in charge of the operation can thus perform the product setting with a perfect knowledge of how the product behaviour while being installed.
