The Equalising Valve is an electronically actuated valve that allows plugged wells to be equalised or brought onto production without the need for intervention.
The Equalising Valve has successfully delivered a zero bubble, gas tight seal using the rigorous requirements set down by the ISO standard ISO 14310.
The field-proven onboard electronics do not need to be connected to surface as the valve is functioned with a ‘Command’ remote activation signal. The valve is programmed to recognise a unique Command pressure signature before activating and equalisation.
A laptop computer allows the ‘pressure pattern’ to be easily programmed at the wellsite as needed. The valve can be installed below any lock or plug and can be used as a shallow or deep set barrier.
