Upstream service company

Saltel Industries is an upstream service company specializing in the development, manufacturing, and installation of metal expandable products for downhole applications. Jean-Louis Saltel founded the company in 2004, and Schlumberger (SLB) acquired it in 2016. Saltel metal expandable technologies serve to optimize production and enhance the performance of downhole operations, from well planning to completion, workover, and intervention operations. Saltel Industries provides solutions for zonal isolation, mechanical anchoring, and casing repair. They also offer services such as installation and field support, along with training and engineering services. Their mission is to provide innovative products and services that are reliable, safe, and cost-effective.

Saltel Industries specializes in the plastic deformation of corrosion-resistant alloys and high-performance composite elastomers. The company focuses on two main product lines:

  1. Metal Expandable patches.
  2. Metal Expandable packers.

Metal expandable technologies

The expandable steel patches serve for remedial services, while the expandable steel packers serve for annular isolation. The Metal Expandable patches and packers are corrosion-resistant, durable, and able to withstand extreme temperatures and pressures. Saltel Industries specializes in providing custom-made solutions tailored to each customer’s individual needs. Besides, the company commits to delivering products of the highest quality and performance. We design and manufacture every solution based on a fit-for-basin scope of work. This ensures that we meet and exceed the customer’s requirements. Likewise, the team at Saltel Industries has extensive experience in creating and delivering custom-made solutions. These metal expandable technologies are indeed reliable and life of well. With an experienced staff, state-of-the-art infrastructure, and a commitment to customer service. Saltel Industries guarantees a high-quality product that will meet and exceed expectations.

Reliable Well Integrity is an essential factor to consider throughout the entire lifespan of a well. Likewise, this applies from the drilling and completion process, to stimulating the well, to performing workovers, and finally to Plug and Abandonment. Ensuring that we complete with accuracy each step in the process is essential for delivering reliable well integrity. This includes properly assessing the surrounding area, conducting detailed tests and surveys, and using high-quality materials and equipment. During the life of the well, it is important to conduct proper maintenance and monitoring. This ensures to identify and address quickly any potential problems. By taking these steps, operators can ensure that their well runs safely and efficiently throughout its entire lifespan.

A life of well concern

Even in hostile, volatile, and hazardous environments, the metal expandable solutions serving to facilitate the drilling process, must have a specific design to endure for the entire life cycle of the well. This means that the solutions must be able to withstand the temperature and pressures downhole, as well as the environmental conditions while continuing to operate reliably. Consequently, the solutions used must be of the highest quality to ensure optimal performance and safety.

FEA calculations

Saltel Industries leverages its material testing, finite element analysis (FEA) calculations, and in-situ steel expansion knowledge and experience to provide reliable life-of-well solutions. Moreover, Saltel provides life-of-well solutions that adapt to most difficult and challenging environments. Our material testing and FEA calculations are validated in a downhole environment. As a result, this ensures that the results are accurate and reliable. Our team is highly experienced in the field of in-situ steel expansion.

In conclusion, this gives us the expertise to develop custom metal expandable solutions that meet the exact needs of our customers. We are committed to providing the best possible solutions to our customers. We strive to ensure that our solutions will stand the test of time in even the toughest conditions.
