Expandable Steel Packers: Saltel Industries

Overview Library

Saltel Industries, an upstream oil service company, joined Schlumberger in 2016 and brings expertise in the growing markets of completions remedial services and openhole annular isolation. The company 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. 

Expandable steel patches

Saltel Industries has developed, tested, and pioneered the use of an expandable stainless steel patch. Expanded with an inflatable element downhole, the patch molds to the casing to create a high-pressure inner lining that guarantees minimal loss of diameter. The patch can be used for perforation shutoff or to repair the casing, tubing, damaged differential valve tools, fracturing ports, or inflow control devices. 

Steel packers

Saltel steel packers are set with limited overpressure and a quick, positive setting procedure to avoid weakening the setting zone. These features enable Saltel steel packers to be used in various applications such as shale fracturing, multistage cementing, cement replacement or integrity verification, acid stimulation, and zonal isolation.
