Baker Hughes has released the industry’s first V1-validated subsurface safety valve, the DeepShield deepwater safety valve, per API Spec 14A. Tested to help ensure fail-safe operations, the valve is designed to close if well control is lost. This establishes a reliable safety barrier to help minimize the likelihood of reservoir fluids escaping up the wellbore, as well as any resulting health, safety and environmental impacts. The valve features a patented, redundant operating system that enables it to function at extreme depths and pressures. It can also be held open at lower pressures, reducing infrastructure costs required to maintain higher wellbore pressures during operations.
