Achieve superior sealing and anchoring performance

Robust, simple, flexible, our new Ovidius™ expanding isolation system delivers unmatched versatility for all of your cased hole and openhole wellbore isolation applications. Designed with advanced materials, the packer’s element begins as a metal alloy, which transforms into rock-like material when it reacts with downhole fluids, creating a strong and reliable seal.

In high-salinity, high-temperature, high-pressure (HP/HT) environments, the Ovidius system delivers superior sealing and anchoring performance helping you improve well integrity and maximize asset value.
