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