Nine’s pressure-actuated BreakThru™ Single-Cycle Barrier Valve performs reliably in all harsh environments.

Nine’s patented BreakThru™ Single-Cycle Barrier Valve features a proprietary high-strength glass material built to withstand downhole conditions up to 10,000 psi (68.9MPa) differential pressure. This interventionless, pressure-actuated, ISO-certified well barrier cost-effectively isolates wellbore reservoir pressure.

Unlike the BreakThru™ Pump Open Barrier Valve, which requires applied differential pressure to activate, the Single-Cycle Barrier Valve is activated when a preset pressure is applied. The opening of the Single-Cycle Barrier Valve is completely independent of the differential pressure below. This gives the operator full flexibility to set hydraulic packers, inflow test DHSV, and test the tubing and packer from above, along with any other required tests. The opening system is protected, ensuring proper function in all harsh environments. Once all preset pressure is surpassed, the valve activates, allowing wellbore fluids to be produced up the full ID of the production tubing without restriction.

  • ISO 14998 V0, ISO 14310 V0, and ISO 28781 certified well barrier
  • Does not require Nine personnel to RIH and operate
  • Reduced rig time over wireline plugs, no intervention needed
  • Preset activation pressure
  • Easy remote removal by surface applied pressure
  • RIH as an integrated part of the completion
  • Can be run in hostile environments (H2S and CO2)
  • Full-bore access post-opening
  • Patented technology
