TAM provides inflatable products for inflow control, including cement retainers, bridge plugs, production packers, and scab liners. TAM also provides swellable packers for use in effective zonal isolation to achieve an annular seal when run on scab liners, conventional liners, and full-length casing. For thru-tubing water shut off and gas migration remedial operations, using an inflatable bridge plug set above lower perforations provides a higher success rate than placing an effective cement plug. In some cases, using an inflatable and squeeze cementing the existing perforations through the packer can even eliminate the existing cement channels external to the casing.
