Casing splits threatening the production. 


It is imperative that producers have intact well integrity management. There is no doubt that their oil and gas wells will withstand significant production rates. Failure to achieve this objective may result in economic losses. It means a downhole impairment – resulting from corrosion or damage generated from previous tool runnings that are now causing leakages. Saltel provides a full range of expandable steel solutions for casing split repair.


The split remediation (casing split repair) is a process that involves repairing the damage. Which can occur due to a variety of reasons such as corrosion, wear and tear, or damage from previous tool runnings. This process is necessary to bring back the integrity of the well, and prevent economic losses.

One way to repair a casing split is by using a casing patch, which is a device that covers and isolates the impairment. The Saltel Xpandable steel patch is made of expandable steel, which makes it easy for the user to insert. Also, expand according to the exact shape and size of the impairment. This ensures a secure and effective seal, restoring the integrity of the casing.

The Saltel Xpandable steel patch also guarantees one of the best drift ID in the market. Drift ID refers to the internal diameter of the patch after expansion. A larger drift ID allows for more flexibility and ease of use for operators, as they can easily resume running tools through the patch during subsequent phases of the well’s life. Following the installation of the patch, operators may need to perform additional work on the well, such as drilling or completing it.

Overall, the Saltel Xpandable steel patch offers a reliable and efficient solution for repairing a casing split, while also maintaining the integrity of the well and allowing for easy tool running during subsequent phases of the well’s life.
