Inter Remote Bypass Valves eliminate the need for intervention during the pre-production phase of a well

Last week two Inter Remote Bypass Valves (IRBVs) were successfully installed and operated in a well
Interwell's Inter Remote Bypass Valve Full bore after barrier removal, high circulation rate, internal premium connections and ISO14310 Vo Bi-Directional Barrier

for an off-shore client. The two IRBVs allowed for circulation and auto filling while RIH. Once at depth, the deep set IRBV was remotely closed to set the packer and test the completion string. It was then cycled open to test the production packer from below. With the production packer set and tested, the shallow set IRBV was closed and a ISO14310 V0 qualified barrier was established. The client could now nipple down the BOP with a shallow set mechanical barrier in place.
This completely eliminated the need for intervention during the pre-production phase of the well.
