Wells with scale or corrosion issues often require continuous injection of treatment chemicals. The most common method employs the use of control lines to place the chemicals at the desired injection point in the well. Issues associated with the stable flow of chemicals through the control lines (no u-tubing), testing of control lines and well integrity have plagued the industry for decades.
Petroleum Technology Company’s SureFlo-R chemical injection valve (CIV) has a unique design, which utilizes the barrier technology from the PTC’s SafeLift Gas Lift valve. The SureFlo-R valve facilitates stable flow of chemicals, prevents u-tubing and maintains well integrity.
