Packer Fluids

Block heat transfer to maintain flow assurance and maximize well integrity

Maintain production flow and well integrity in cold temperatures

Insulating packer fluids are designed to control heat conduction and convection on production in cold-temperature, deepwater, and arctic environments. They can help to prevent wax buildup, hydrate formation, and salt deposition in both deepwater and onshore wells, and they limit temperature cycling effects that risk casing collapse or casing/cement bond integrity.

Ideal fluids will be compatible with a wide range of elastomers and fluids and with your surface-processing equipment while also inhibiting corrosion.

Our modeling software enables simulation and modeling of fluid thermal behavior to help you manage risks for production and shut-in scenarios.
