NEW ORLEANS – At the 2013 SPE Annual Meeting, new Expro features include a prototype HawkEye V downhole video camera, the BigCat Packer, and ExACT (Expro Annulus-Operated Circulating and Test) tool.

HawkEye V can withstand 300°F (149°C) and provides bi-direction side view rotation/scan, with enhanced quality pictures and software, says Expro.

The DST BigCat packer is a single-trip retrievable alternative to seal-bore packers in high-pressure/high-temperature wells.

ExACT combines downhole shut-in and circulating functions to 15K psi (103 MPa) and 450°F (232°C) temperatures.
