Operator Maximizes Gas Production, Saves 6 Hours per Well with XHP-BB Big-Bore Premium Production Packer

Publication Date: 10/24/2014

An operator had encountered inconsistent production in a high-rate-gas well offshore Myanmar in the Bay of Bengal and needed a more suitable completion design for the planned three wells.

For the production rate expected (up to 100 million ft³/d per well), large-bore (7-in) tubing was required. This type of well also demanded a large-bore packer that would withstand the harsh downhole conditions. Because of the offshore environment, it was critical that the packer minimize rig-related and intervention time, costs, and risks.

The XHP-BB hydrostatically set big-bore premium production packer is designed to withstand high flow rates and harsh environments, including both HPHT and low-temperature subsea injection wells.

  • The hydrostatic setting mechanism enables rapid installation.
  • Setting chamber architecture eliminates tubing movement relative to the casing, ensuring consistent, predictable setting.
  • It is made of premium metallurgy and elastomers.
  • The sealing element, situated above the slips, prevents debris from fouling the slips.
  • The leak-free hydrostatic chamber ensures activation at the proper depth.
  • The packer meets the ISO 14310/API grade V0 standard for a tight gas seal.
