The IPV1 is a remote open uni-directional barrier valve designed to be installed and run as an integrated part of the completion string or liner. This increases the efficiency of the installation process.
The IPV1 is predominately used for remotely setting a packer and/or providing tubing pressure tests during completion deployment in any well condition.
The IPV1 does not require any offshore personnel & can be set up to the Operators specifications onshore or opening setting can easily be adjusted offshore if operations change prior to RIH. The IPV1 can also be configured to allow numerous pressure cycles prior to opening.
The IPV1 incorporates Precision Oiltools patented equalisation feature, before remotely opening the valve, which removes all pressure from the ball before opening. This saves the Operator from a pressure surge during opening process and aids with debris tolerance.
In addition to the built-in remote opening mechanism, a variety of opening options are available as a contingency.
key to the IPV success is our ability to equalise the pressure before the valve is opened, this patented feature greatly reduces the fiction force on the valve mechanism ensuring it can open even under extreme loads
once pressure has equalised the ball will rotate and translate simultaneously to remove the ball from the ball seat, therefore the resultant friction force is negligible and the actuation force required to open the ball is greatly reduced ensuring flow is not compromised with a partial restriction within the well bore thus maximising well integrity – best in class!
good ideas made great
