Interventek Subsea Engineering has secured orders in excess of £1 million from Professional Rental Tools LLC (PRT Offshore) for its Revolution in-riser shear and seal safety valve.
Under the contract Interventek will supply its 6.375” 15,000psi working pressure valves to be included in PRT Offshore’s Subsea Safety System.
Interventek’s managing director, Gavin Cowie, said: “Over the last twelve months the Revolution valve has gained a successful operational track record with PRT Offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Increasing the number of valves deployed will add to this experience and assist in the process of broader subsea market adoption. We are delighted to be continuing our relationship with PRT Offshore, are very grateful for their support and look forward to working with them to help deliver enhanced services to their customers.”
PRT Offshore’s president, Patrick Placer, added: “We have serious ambitions to develop our capability in the subsea landing string market in the Gulf of Mexico and internationally. The unique features and benefits of the Revolution valve allow us to differentiate and enhance our offering and we believe this is part of the reason for the increased demand we are now experiencing.
“The design advantage of the Revolution valve has allowed it to be easily integrated into our Subsea Safety System and offers our customers additional benefits of being able to cut wireline or coiled tubing and then seal. We have used the valves on several projects so far with excellent results and now wish to expand our capability.”
The PRT Offshore Subsea Safety 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 system is designed for deep water and high working pressure applications. The addition of the Revolution valve enables the operator 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.
