Interventek Subsea Engineering has joined forces with Baker Hughes, to bring a suite of high-performance subsea well completion and intervention systems to market.

Interventek has been awarded an initial eight-figure contract by Baker Hughes to supply multiple API-17G qualified 7.375” 10,000psi in-riser landing strings. The landing strings will be incorporated within Baker Hughes’ subsea systems as they develop and expand their in-house offering to service the global market.

The landing strings comprise Interventek’s unique shear-seal Revolution safety valve, lubricator valve, retainer valve, latch and ancillary equipment, and the supply agreement includes the provision of support for training, inspection, testing, maintenance and deployment of the technology.

Interventek’s Revolution valve is a compact and powerful shear and seal safety valve for subsea well intervention, which unlike its peers, uses separate cutting and sealing components to ensure seal integrity. With other unique design features, this new technology can cut through all forms of intervention media and provides rapid closure for improved safety and reliability. It also reduces manufacturing lead times and cost and is suitable for a wide variety of subsea systems.

Gavin Cowie, managing director at Interventek said: “We believe this contract marks the start of an exciting long-term partnership with Baker Hughes. Talks are ongoing regarding the provision of both our in-riser and open-water well intervention systems, plus our new, compact and lightweight controls package. We aim to support Baker Hughes expand their offering, with technology that offers enhanced environmental and safety performance. Our recent investment in staff, new premises and onsite testing will ensure we are well placed to support this collaboration.”

“With a pipeline of innovative new technology, Interventek is keen to establish partnerships with forward thinking subsea service providers. For us, collaboration is essential for industry advancement and is key to enable the roll-out of more advanced, fit-for-purpose solutions. Baker Hughes is a dynamic force and we are privileged to be able to work together, sharing a stronger market positioning and the delivery of world-class solutions.”
