- Isolate upper and lower zones to ensure unrestricted production from the upper zone
- Eliminate cable strain with no relative movement between the tubing and electric cable
- Optimize differential performance with proven slip-element-slip design using metal backup system
- Use multiport configuration to vent annular pressure, inject fluid, and access instrument wires
The ElecPak™ electric submersible pump (ESP) packer from Baker Hughes facilitates the use of an electric submersible pump in your well. The packer’s design innovations let you incorporate an integral electric cable penetrator or a feed-through drop-in penetrator system. This multiple-port configuration allows for simultaneous venting of annular pressure, fluid injection, and instrument wire access.
Reliable performance from flexible designs
The ElecPak ESP packer is a single-string, retrievable pump packer with a dual-string completion carrying the ESP system, two control/injection lines, and a power cable. The packer’s single string goes below the ESP system and lower completion while on top, the dual string carries the oil and gas to the surface. The packer accepts industry-standard feed-through, drop-in penetrators, or molded integral penetrator systems
This solution reliably isolates the upper and lower zones and enables unrestricted production from the upper zone. A surface-controlled, hydraulically operated sliding sleeve regulates lower-zone inflow when reservoir conditions require it, thus eliminating the need for intervention. Temperature and pressure sensors are incorporated to monitor the contribution from the lower zone.
The ElecPak ESP packer affords simple operation through hydraulic-set, mechanically locked, and straight-pull shear release.
The packing element is also designed for flexibility, with elements available in either standard nitrile or optional HNBR/FEPM. Regardless, every element delivers a reliable seal, qualified to stringent API ISO 14310 V-3 standards. The ElecPak ESP packer also comes in multiple metallurgy options to meet downhole flow wetted requirements.
