Produce well fluids without restrictions using this low-cost ISO V0 certified well barrier.

Nine’s patented BreakThru™ technology features a proprietary high-strength glass material built to withstand downhole conditions up to 10,000 psi (68.9MPa) differential pressure. An intervention-actuated ISO-certified well barrier, this tool effectively isolates wellbore reservoir pressure at a lower cost.

Run on the bottom of the tubing and/or below a packer BHA, the BreakThru™ Barrier Valve isolates the tubing and acts as a barrier to set hydraulic packers. Once the packer is set the completion can be tested against it. The basic glass disc can then be knocked out with coil tubing, slickline, or drop bar, allowing the wellbore fluids to be produced up the full ID of the production tubing without restrictions.

  • ISO 14998 V0 / ISO 14310 V0 and ISO 28781 certified well barrier
  • Does not require Nine personnel to RIH and operate
  • Patented, low-cost technology for wells with planned intervention
  • Easy, reliable removal by wireline jar or milling operation
  • RIH as an integrated part of the completion
  • Can be run in hostile environments (H2S and CO2)
  • Debris-tolerant pressure activation
  • Full-bore access post-opening
