This Video of the Month showcases how the application of ValveVA, supported by Optis Infinity technology, helped a leading operator in the Netherlands regain the integrity of their Gas well.
A control line was leaking and affecting the operation of the Sub-surface safety valve, which needed to be locked open and replaced by an insert safety valve. During the lock out operation, substantial force was unexpectedly exerted on the flow tube, and the operator was unable to verify if the safety valve was successfully locked-out.
With a critical safety system compromised, the operator needed a complete understanding of the situation downhole.
EV’s Optis Infinity M125 Camera was run on Slickline with full, 360 degree footage acquired to inspect the status of the safety valve, and evaluate the position of the flapper and flow tube. Watch the video or download the PDF Case Study to find out more.
