Interventek Subsea Engineering has signed a two year deal with Professional Rental Tools (PRT) to supply its in-riser ‘Revolution’ valve for well intervention operations in the Gulf of Mexico.
Interventek’s Revolution shear and seal valve will be used to enhance PRT’s existing subsea systems offering.
The PRT subsea spanner joint system interfaces with the rig BOPs, subsea tree vendor tubing hanger running tool (THRT) and downhole functions during installation, workover or removal of subsea completions.
The addition of the Revolution valve enables the user to cut wire or coiled tubing introduced into the well and provides a seal from below after the cut. The valve also offers pump through capability to facilitate well kill operations.
Stuart Ferguson, chairman of Interventek said: “Deploying our valves in the Gulf of Mexico will allow us to gather additional subsea experience and an operational track record on the back of our already extensive technology trials, testing and application development. This is the first step towards broader subsea market adoption and we look forward to working with PRT and helping them deliver enhanced services to their customers over the next two years and beyond.”
PRT chief operating officer and president, Patrick Placer said: “The design advantage of the Interventek Revolution valve has allowed it to be easily integrated into the PRT existing spanner joint system and offers our customers the additional benefit of being able to cut wireline or coiled tubing and then seal. Through this exclusive partnership, PRT brings to market an enhanced spanner joint system giving our clientele more choices and operational benefits.”
