Interventek Subsea Engineering
Interventek is a leading subsea engineering business, providing technically advanced well intervention solutions to the global upstream oil and gas market. This dynamic company is revolutionising well intervention operations with the introduction of an innovative and ground-breaking new ‘shear and seal’ valve which delivers improved operational safety, reliability and well integrity at a fraction of current costs.
The unique Revolution Valve is the only valve on the market that does not compromise its ability to seal with its shearing action and does not use any elastomer components for fluid containment. This is the best line of defence in high pressure, high temperature environments and when a fast and reliable seal is required. It is easily scaled to meet all well bore sizes, to cut all likely intervention media and its compact size with rotary actuators means it is ideally suited to the challenging confines of in-riser and slim line open water interventions.
This heralds a break through towards an exciting new era of innovative industry applications across the entire lifecycle of the well from exploration and appraisal to development, production and abandonment. The new Revolution Valve is anticipated to reduce the current cost of manufacture and ownership by a staggering 50% compared with conventional products. It can surpass endurance testing over many hundreds of cycles and is specifically aimed towards meeting the highly rigorous API 17G industry standards.
