Packers systems are among the most important tools in the tubing string. The types of packer systems vary greatly. We offer a wide range of types and sizes, designed or configured to meet specific wellbore or reservoir conditions, such as single-packer or tandem-packer configurations, single-tubing or dual-tubing strings, and the full range of pressure and temperature applications.
The basic 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 normal production or injection flow.
All new packers are designed and tested beyond ISO standard 14310, which defines packer design validation grades. Premium packers are qualified as V0, the strongest validation overall, and new packer designs must meet the minimum standard of V3, the most stringent standard for testing in liquid media. In addition to enhanced ISO testing, packers undergo design acceptance tests, including vibration and shock testing, standard flow-by testing, and full functional testing. All X-series elements are 100% volumetrically scanned.
Liner hanger packer engineered to incorporate a metal-to-metal system for harsh environments that exceed the temperature limits of elastomers.
Permanent and retrievable packers for hostile downhole conditions.
A wide selection of packers with a range of features is available for gravel or frac packing, together with several production or permanent packers.
Numerous options to ensure the best match for a variety of reservoir conditions and completions for vertical, deviated, and horizontal wells and low- to mid-pressure and temperature environments .
Bonded-to-pipe and slip-on, oil- and water-swellable, low- and high-pressure packers with unique features for industry-leading pressure performance and reliability.
Hydrostatically set, retrievable packer for high-rate production and injection wells and challenging environments that require single-trip completions.
Hydraulically set, retrievable packers featuring a secondary bore that allows passage of another completion string or the ESP packer penetrator.
Production packers with multiple ports that allow passage of electric and hydraulic conduits for fiber-optic cables, tubing-mounted reservoir monitoring equipment, and other equipment that requires connection to the surface.
Field-proven designs for production or treating applications, including squeeze cementing, acidizing, fracturing, and testing.
Saltel Industries specializes in high-performance composite elastomers and the plastic deformation of stainless steel, and offers a line of expandable steel patches and annulus steel packers.
