Hunting Scores Licence Deal for Interventek’s Well Intervention Valve

Interventek Subsea Engineering has awarded a sole license for its new surface well intervention valve to international energy services specialist, Hunting.

The product will join Hunting’s pressure control equipment portfolio and will be called the Ezi-Shear Seal.

According to Interventek, the valve incorporates its ‘Revolution’ technology and provides a compact, reliable and fast mechanism for the shearing of slickline, wireline and coiled tubing to isolate or seal the wellbore. It also offers a cutting and sealing capability for standard, offshore or high-pressure applications where an additional level of pressure barrier contingency is required.

Stuart Ferguson, chairman at interventek subsea engineering, said: “We are delighted to award Hunting the sole license for our surface well intervention valve. Hunting is the ideal company to bring this product to market with its global presence, commitment to innovation and dynamic performance improvement philosophy. This unique product is the only surface valve in our range and incorporates our next generation shear and seal Revolution technology, offering multiple advantages over rival products. We look forward to seeing the industry as a whole benefit from both parties’ forward thinking, innovation and collaboration.”

Alan Reid, managing director for Hunting Well Intervention, said: “Hunting is delighted to bring the new Ezi-Shear Seal valve to market; an addition to our portfolio that we believe will deliver improved operational safety, reliability and well integrity, three vital aspects of any offshore activity.

“We believe there is a gap in the market for a product of this type with its cutting and sealing capabilities far outweighing those of other equipment currently available. Interest in the valve has already been high and we’re looking forward to helping this increase in coming weeks.

“We’re also thrilled to have worked closely with the team at Interventek in making this deal happen at a time when successful partnership working has taken on even greater importance. There are so many benefits that working closely with like-minded companies can bring and it is an avenue that we will continue to develop in the future.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
