Checklist - Packer Running Operations

As packers are probably one of the most important items of downhole equipment in well completions, great care must be taken with their preparation and installation where they are used. All packers should have been functionally checked and pressure tested in Base workshops before dispatch to the well site but should still be inspected before use.

  • ¬∑correct size and type;
  • ¬∑cutting edges . . .
