• Onshore production well, Kazakhstan
  • Premier packer model 598-287
  • Mandrel inside diameter 2.870 in. and outside diameter 3.550 in.
  • Cutting interval length of 1.3 ft for the packer mandrel
  • Minimized mobilization costs and operating time
  • Monitored cutting operation at the surface confirming the cut and avoiding unnecessary trips out of hole

Case study details

An operator working an onshore production well in Kazakhstan needed to retrieve a PremierTM packer. Baker Hughes quickly mobilized the Mechanical Pipe CutterTM (MPCTM) pipe recovery service from their local facility to sever the packer mandrel. The equipment arrived in a short time frame avoiding the delays traditionally caused by using explosives or hazardous chemicals for this type of operation.
