Subsurface Control Valves
Reliable solutions for temporary well abandonment
Halliburton Subsurface Control (SSC) valves provide reliable barriers for use in a variety of applications from regular BOP maintenance and integrity validation to casing and liner-top testing to longer term applications, such as batch drilling. When combined with the strength and durability of the industry-standard RTTS® packer, SSC valves allow operators to perform workover operations as well as minimize disruptions caused by weather emergencies. In fact, the Subsurface Control Valve III (SSC III) is the only subsurface safety valve in the industry that will support up to a million pounds of drillstring, providing operators with a safe, efficient, and cost-effective means to secure rigs and to evacuate personnel when the threat of a hurricane or typhoon arises.
With SSC valves, operators can secure the drillstring downhole to provide more efficient abandonment of the drilling rig. And since the drillstring is left in place, minimal effort is required to bring the well back online. Well security and personnel safety are increased, and operations can resume quickly after a workover or storm.
