Penguin’s mandrels are available for tubing sizes ranging
from 2-3/8” to 5-1/2”, suitable for both 1” and 1-1/2” flow
control devices, in variety of thread configurations manufactured
out of fully traceable material heat treated in

deviated wellbores and also suitable for dual completions.
Side Pocket Gas Lift Mandrels
The Side pocket Mandrel is designed with an oval cross section which provides a full opening tubing drift and an offset bore parallel to the tubing bore in which 1” & 1-1/2" OD flow control device can be installed. This offset bore contains a machined pocket with sealing surfaces and latching profiles for the flow control device to be installed. The ports in the pocket allow communication between the casing annulus and tubing through the flow control device.

The design includes an eccentric swage at both ends of the oval tube,
an orienting sleeve in the upper swage, a tool deflector cum anchor
and a machined pocket. The orienting sleeve guides the kickover tool
in the right orientation while running or retrieving 1” & 1 -1/2" O.D.
valves thru wireline. The tool deflector cum anchor allows only the
appropriate running and pulling tools to approach the pocket and
deflects all other tool into the tubing bore of the mandrel.
