For artificially gravel packed bore designs, we have developed the AGE Inflatable Slipover Packer as an ideal solution for sealing screens into the casing.
Our Slipover Packers are designed to be run in after screen installation and gravel packing, to seal internally onto the screen riser through the use of a rubber M-packer, and to seal externally into the casing through the use of an inflatable packer. The packer is run in, inflated with and disengaged from through the use of an AGE setting tool run in on drill pipe; a simple one-shot process.
AGE Inflatable Slipover Packers have an advantage over similar products – they are able to be deflated and returned to the surface of the bore at any time. This enables artificial gravel pack top-ups after test pumping, or even after years of pumping. Once at the surface, the valves are reset and the slipover packer is ready for re-deployment in the bore for continued service.
