The Wel-lok M2M™ technology consists of utilizing a modified thermite chemical reaction heater to melt bismuth-based alloys downhole. The melted alloys have a viscosity similar to water, and a specific gravity 10 times that of water, allowing them to flow into the smallest areas of a wellbore without the need of any surface pumping equipment. As the alloys cool and solidify, they expand to provide a seamless gas tight seal that is non-corrosive and not affected by H2S or C02.

The Wel-lok M2M PRT™ (Packer Repair Tool) is designed to repair a leaking production packer by creating a new seal in the production tubing by sealing the casing annulus. Sealing a production annulus with a PRT™ eliminates the need to remove a production string from a well to replace the packer, reducing operator costs and downtime while introducing a superior seal in the well.
