Optimize gas lift operations while minimizing cost

Maximize production and revenue while minimizing or eliminating costly workovers with Schlumberger side pocket mandrels (SPMs). Side pocket mandrels are completion components that house gas lift valves and other devices that communicate with the annulus.

These mandrels enable rapid retrieval and replacement of the gas lift valves without having to pull the tubing, making them essential in wells with highly variable production or where tubing retrieval would compromise well economics.

Improve production flexibility

Our SPMs are manufactured to the strictest industry standards, and a complete line of types and sizes is available to accommodate a multitude of completions and gas lift configurations. These SPMs can be used with a wide variety of Camco retrievable gas lift valves and flow control devices to offer complete life-of-the-well design flexibility.

Expanding on the innovative and industry-original SPM design, the G-series mandrels have an orienting sleeve, tool discriminator, and solid pocket that can be forged or machined. For a single well or an entire field, Schlumberger side pocket mandrels provide a cost-effective edge to help operators maximize production and revenue in a competitive and demanding market.
