WFV™ – CDP (Calibrated Dual Position)

Welltec® Flow Valve - for Inflow & Injection Management

Introduction

The Welltec® Flow Valve is a full bore valve that can be used for both production and injection purposes within the lower completion, the rugged design enables rotation during liner deployment.

With specially designed inlets and sealing system, the WFV is qualified to open and close multiple times under differential pressure whilst maintaining flow, from both injection and production scenarios.

The full bore design makes it ideal for intervention-enabled completions and together with Welltec® Annular Barrier providing high pressure zonal isolation, the WFV forms an integral part of the Flex-Well® completion.

  • Both selective zonal injection / stimulation and balanced injection profile within injectors

FEATURES

  • Flow areas can be calibrated on site prior to deployment based on drilling information
  • ON - OFF nozzle design
  • Low profile with minimum impact on ECD
  • Inlet flow geometry to minimize erosion
  • Full bore design provides unrestricted flow path to minimize delta P loss
  • Coatings to minimize scale deposition
  • Robust seal design for manipulation under delta P
  • High burst, collapse and torque capability
  • All variants can be combined with sand screens
  • High temperature WFV available

BENEFITS

  • No limitation on the quantity of WFVs per main bore or lateral
