storm packer

1. n. [Well Completions]
A heavy-duty retrievable packer assembly that can be run in to isolate the wellbore of a new well in the event of suspended activities, for example, during a severe storm. An on-off disconnect feature enables the storm packer to be set at a safe depth while using the weight of the string below the packer to maintain the set and hang off the drillstring to avoid pulling all the way out of the hole.
