Aberdeen-based, subsea well intervention technology specialist, Interventek has been awarded a contract exceeding £1M to deliver their 6-3/8”, 15,000psi, Open Water Revolution Valves to Trendsetter Engineering in Houston. The first commercial deployment of Open Water Revolution Valves helps improve intervention cost, efficiency, and safety.
The shear-and-seal subsea safety valves will be delivered by early 2020 for integration into Trendsetter’s MkII 15K Light Riser Intervention System (LRIS). The system is scheduled for its first deployment for a major international oil and gas operator, around March 2020, as part of a subsea well intervention project in Latin America.
The Revolution shear-and-seal safety valve comprises a number of highly advanced features, not least its unique arrangement of internal components and functionality. This ensures it can quickly shear through any likely obstruction and reliably seal the wellbore using only a single device. Its simplified, compact design reduces the time and costs to manufacture and maintain, and its universal system compatibility means that it is suitable for a variety of subsea intervention or well control solutions.
This is currently the first commercial deployment planned for Interventek’s Open Water Revolution Valves and follows on the back of a successful track record supplying the same core, shear-and-seal technology for in-riser intervention systems.
