Revolution Valve Technology launched at OTC: A Revolution in Well Control Safety
The new Revolution Valve is anticipated to reduce the current cost of manufacture and ownership by a staggering 50% compared with conventional products.
Interventek Subsea Engineering will launch its new shear-and-seal ‘Revolution Valve’ at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston next week (2nd-5th May 2016). Aptly named, this patented technology is set to revolutionise subsea well intervention operations and is presented as a ‘best-in-class’ solution, designed to outperform comparative technologies at a fraction of the cost.
The unique Revolution Valve is the only valve on the market that does not compromise its ability to seal with its shearing action and does not use any elastomer components for fluid containment. This is the best line of defence in high pressure, high temperature environments and when a fast and reliable seal is required. It is easily scaled to meet all well bore sizes, to cut all likely intervention media and its compact size with rotary actuators means it is ideally suited to the challenging confines of in-riser and slim line open water interventions.
This heralds a breakthrough towards an exciting new era of innovative industry applications across the entire lifecycle of the well, from exploration and appraisal to development, production and abandonment. The new Revolution Valve is anticipated to reduce the current cost of manufacture and ownership by a staggering 50% compared with conventional products. This presents a much more viable well intervention solution when operating in today’s challenging economic climate.
It can also surpass endurance testing over many hundreds of cycles and is specifically aimed towards meeting the highly rigorous API 17G industry standards.
Stuart Ferguson, Chairman explained: “Our goal is to revolutionise the global subsea intervention market with game-changing, disruptive and enabling solutions. We will deploy compliant, higher performance, compact and cost-effective safety valve technology in the most challenging of subsea environments. We are committed to delivering best-in-class solutions that are half the cost but twice the performance.”
Interventek would like to invite you to visit their stand at OTC to discover how this new technology will change the face of future well interventions and set new standards in subsea well operations performance and safety.
The company is exhibiting at OTC on stand 2063, within the Scottish Development International (SDI) ‘Scottish Pavilion’ located in the NRG Centre.
