Interwell IVC

Insert Valve Carrier

The IVC avoids recompletion and reduces cost by allowing retrofitting of Wireline Retrievable Sub Surface Safety Valves in damaged Downhole Safety Valve nipples. The anchoring mechanism’s design and construction enables the use of standard locking profile or slips mechanism when the existing profile is damaged.
Interwell IVC


  • Designed to fit existing valve profile and can be installed either by standard locking profile or by using slip mechanism
  • Independent of profiles version is also available
  • The system is run on wireline/slickline and retrieved on standard GS retrieving tools.
