REACH Series Subsurface Safety Valves

Rely on fail-safe-closed safety valve operation

REACH Performance (P), Extreme Performance (EP), and Ultra Performance (UP) surface controlled subsurface safety valves (SCSSVs) are ideal for deep-set wells, deep water, and extreme high-pressure/high-temperature applications surpassing 10,000 psi (689.4 bar) and 350°F (176.6°C).

REACH valves can be set as deep as 20,000 ft (6096 m), and ensure fail-safe-closed operation using reliable, heavy-sprung closure technology that eliminates the need for a nitrogen charge. Tubing pressure is isolated from the control system, enabling the valve to be opened at much lower operating pressures, reducing the cost of umbilicals in some applications. Because the valves can be operated at a low operating pressure, they are highly suitable for applications with low opening pressure limitations such as subsea completions or where there are limitations on supply pressure capability.

The slimline outside diameter of REACH valves allows control line bypass and smaller casing programs, reducing cost.

100% metal-to-metal sealing technology ensures containment of wellbore fluids when the valve is closed, and RBT™ metal-to-metal thread technology provides gas-tight sealing in harsh environments and results in a high tensile rating for the valve. 

Subsurface Safety Systems

Our self-equalizing, surface-controlled subsurface safety valves reduce risk and increase profit compared with completions using nonequalizing valves.
