Tubing Packer technology
A Packer is a downhole device used to isolate the annulus from the production conduit, enabling controlled production, injection or treatment. A typical packer assembly incorporates a means of securing the packer against the casing or liner wall, such as a slip arrangement, and a means of creating a reliable hydraulic seal to isolate the annulus, typically using an expandable elastomeric element. You can classify Completion Packers by application, setting method, and possible retrievability.
Saltel Xpandable Steel Packer systems are quite critical tools in the tubing string. They cover a wide range of annular isolation applications and are not retrievable. We offer a wide range of types and sizes, designed or configured to meet specific wellbore or reservoir conditions, such as ECPs, AZIPs, or FracPackers.
The essential requirement of packers systems and associated tools relates to flow from or injection into the formation to or from the tubing string or production conduit. The packer must enable efficient flow and must not restrict average production or injection flow.
Openhole Packer or Cased Hole Packer selection.
Primary criteria will help you define which type of Xpandable steel Packer you need in your well.
Then, To best match with your downhole requirement: Openhole or cased hole packer? Which setting and operating temperatures? How about your Differential Service Pressure Ratings (both internal & external) above and below the Stainless Steel External Tubing Packer? Maximum ID to be set in, the Packer metallurgy and its compatibility with the environment of your well…?
