Pump-life extension and increased production in one tool
Features & Benefits
The 32-A Tension Set Packer is a versatile, easy to use tension set tool, which holds differential pressure from above or below. It is designed to run, set, reset and retrieve easily even under adverse conditions. It is ideal for squeeze cementing, casing testing, stimulation treatments and straddle operations using a retrievable bridge plug. Full-bore design minimizes the potential for screen-out during fracturing, does not restrict flow rates and allows the use of through-tubing tools without pulling the packer.
The 32-A Tension Set Packer is run with the SC Tension Unloader Valve above the tool, allowing equalization of the fluid levels while the running the tool to setting depth. To set the tool, pick up on tubing string and rotate 1/4 turn to the left (or right, if using righthand set) at the tool.
Slack-off tubing weight while holding torque. This allows the tool to take weight. Packing elements will not be compressed with the SC unloader in the open position. At this point, circulation between tubing and annulus is possible.
Tension is pulled to compress the packing element system and closes the unloader isolating tubing from annulus.
Slack-off tubing weight which will result in setdown weight on the 32-A and open the SC unloader and establish communication between tubing and annulus. Rotate tubing string 1/4 turn to the right (or to the left if right-hand set) at the tool and pick-up on tubing while holding torque.
The service tool will jay into the running slot and can then be moved, reset or retrieved from the well.
The SC Unloader Valve should remain in the open position while packer is free.
If service tool will not release using the normal procedure, right-hand rotation will release the safety joint. This will relax the packing elements and retract the slips from the cone allowing the service tool to be pulled from the well. The service tool must be pulled from the well and redressed before trying to reset service tool.
