openhole packer

1. n. [Well Completions]
A type of packer designed for use in openhole applications such as drillstem testing. Openhole packers are typically configured with one large element that can be deformed easily to contact the uneven formation surface, yet retain strength and sufficient integrity to withstand the anticipated differential pressures.
