The Owen X-SPAN® Tubing/Casing patch System provides a proven, durable and
dependable seal over perforations, splits, corrosions or leaks in all types of tubulars.
This system can be deployed on electric wireline or tubing and used on conventional,
horizontal, monobore, multi-lateral, slim hole or geothermal well bores. The Owen
X-SPAN® System has proven to be an economical and reliable solution for a broad
range of applications, including shutting off unwanted water influx, zonal protection
for frac-through applications, repairing tubular leaks from pin holes to collar
leaks, repairing corroded or eroded tubing or casing as well as isolating frac ports
and auxiliary tools in horizontal wells.
The large bore assures easy passage of service tools including bridge plugs, drop
balls, seal bore assemblies, logging tools and perforating systems. The minimal
surface equipment required for deploying the patch and rig less intervention results
in tremendous savings for the operator. The metal-to-metal X-SPAN® seal is
proven technology engineered for high temperature applications while yielding the
highest burst and collapse pressure ratings in the industry. The X-SPAN® casing
patch can be deployed to protect 300-ft (91-m) sections of tubing or casing on a
single trip, with multi-trip stackable patches available to span longer intervals.
X-SPAN® Systems can be designed using premium alloys for extreme well bore
environments and custom sized for most tubing restrictions.
All Owen X-SPAN® Systems are easily deployed using a range of multi-stage explosive
or hydraulic setting tools. The explosive setting tools can be initiated electrically,
on e-line or slick line using a variety of compatible firing systems. For your conventional
tubing or coil tubing deployment requirements, we have several sizes of hydraulically
operated setting tools available. X-SPAN® Systems are easily removable by just
milling off the sealing elements. The reliability and quality of the X-SPAN®
System has been proven many times over the past several years with over 2900 installations
completed with a success rate of 98% when setting depth has been achieved.
