Steam Valves

Advanced Completion Technology for SAGD Operations

The Packers Plus Inferno Ball-Activated Steam Valve enhances steam distribution along the lateral in steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) completions, while reducing operational cost and risk. The Inferno’s ball-activated internal sliding sleeve removes the requirement to kill the well and cool the reservoir to run coiled tubing into the well for initial sleeve activation.

The Advanced Reservoir Management Systems (ARMS™) group leveraged the best of Packers Plus innovation in developing the Inferno Ball-Activated Steam Valve. Packers Plus develops completion technologies for a variety of applications, adapting to industry demand. Packers Plus is an innovator of multi-stage completion systems and provides solutions for challenging applications in horizontal, vertical, multi-lateral and high pressure/high temperature (HPHT) wells.

The Inferno offers many features and benefits

  • Eliminates need for coiled tubing operations for first sleeve opening
  • Enables uniform steam distribution throughout lateral with adjustable nozzles
  • Erosion resistant valves can be opened and closed multiple times
