To retrieve a stuck packer, ExxonMobil needed to either cut the tubing above or the inner sleeve of the packer. Their regular electric line provider was unable to perform the required services.

The team used the 2 1⁄8-in Mechanical Pipe CutterTM (MPCTM) tool to precisely cut inside the packer sleeve in two runs.
