James C Doane, Robert J Taylor, Peter J Fay, David B Ruddock, Scott D Collins, Rafael Ramirez, Gary L Anderson: Packer setting mechanism. BAKER HUGHES INCORPORATED, Cantor Colburn, September 20, 2016: US09447649

A packer system including a packer and a setting mechanism. The setting mechanism has a setting piston that is actuatable in response to a fluid pressure in order to set the packer with the setting piston. The setting mechanism prevents actuation of the setting piston until the pressure is decreased ...
