SUPERIOR GBK INJECTION PRESSURE OPERATED GAS LIFT VALVE


INTRODUCTION

The Superior GBK gas lift valve is a 1 OD slickline retrievable, injection pressure operated valve designed for use in either continuous flow or intermittent gas lift installations. The valve is run on a GBK Series latch in a KB Series style side pocket mandrel.
FEATURES Nitrogen charged bellows Floating seat to promote positive stem/seat Injection pressure operated Dual seal nitrogen containment Special bellows treatment to prolong life Available in various alloys and elastomers Integral reverse check 1/8 - 5/16 port sizes

APPLICATION AND OPERATION

The bellows of the GBK gas lift valve is constructed of three-ply Monel. During manufacture, the bellows is placed in a hydrostatic pressure chamber and subjected to external pressure. This special hydraulic forming process seats all the convolutions of the valve bellows so that each convolution accepts an equal amount of stress during valve operation. The component parts of the bellows assembly are unitized by induction brazing that enables the nitrogen charge to be sealed in the bellows without the use of elastomers. To provide additional protection against alteration of the valve

pressure charge, the tail plug of the GBK valve is fitted with a copper gasket. These two seals offer double protection against fluid leakage into the bellows housing. GBK seats are available with 1/8 to 5/16 ports. These sizes enable the operator to inject gas at rates suited to changing well conditions and operator needs. The seats are available in either Monel or tungsten carbide. Before installation, the dome of the GBK gas lift valve is charged with nitrogen to establish the valve operating pressure. The valve is made up to a Superior GBK Series top latch. The valve and latch are run by slickline into the pocket of a Superior KB Series style side pocket mandrel. The two packing sets on the GBK valve isolate the ports in the mandrel pocket. In gas lift operations, high-pressure injection gas enters the port in the valve body from the casing annulus and acts on the bellows. When the combined force resulting from the injection gas pressure on the bellows area less, the port area and the production pressure operating over the port area is greater than the force caused by the nitrogen charge in the bellows, the bellows is compressed. The valve stem tip is lifted off the valve seat, opening the valve. The injection gas flows through the seat and into the production tubing. When the pressure of the injection gas in the casing annulus at valve depth drops below the valve set pressure, the valve bellows extends downward, causing the ball of the stem tip to seat and closes the valve. An integral check valve in the nose of the GBK gas lift valve prevents reverse flow through the valve. The check valve seals tightly against a hard/soft seat combination. The stem tip, seat, and bellows, of the GBK valve are protected from damage during valve operation by a special silicone fluid dampening feature. The noncompressible silicone fluid that is injected into the valve bellows during manufacture prevents vibration and chattering during valve operation. When the valve is in the closed position the silicone fluid remains in the lower chamber of the bellows. As the bellows is compressed to open the valve, the viscous silicone fluid is forced out of the lower chamber of the bellows, through a bore drilled in the cushion rod, and finally through a metering port installed in the upper end of the cushion rod. The small diameter of the metering port in the cushion rod permits only a gradual passage of the silicone fluid. Therefore, the ball of the stem tip can lift off the valve seat only as rapidly as the thick silicone fluid can pass through the small port. While the valve remains open, the silicone fluid remains in the core of the cushion rod. When the bellows extends to close the valve, the silicone fluid is drawn back through the port in the cushion rod and finally into the lower chamber of the bellows adapter.

brazing that enables the nitrogen charge to be sealed in the bellows without the use of elastomers. To provide additional protection against altering the valve charge, the tail plug of the GR-20 valve is fitted with a copper gasket. These two seals offer double protection against fluid leakage into the bellows housing. GR-20 seats are available with 3/16 to 1/2 ports. These sizes enable the operator to inject gas at rates suited to changing well conditions and operator needs. The seats are available in either Monel or tungsten carbide. Before installation, the dome of the GR-20 gas lift valve is charged with nitrogen to establish the valve operating pressure. The valve is made up to a Superior GR series top latch.

SUPERIOR GBKRF PRODUCTION PRESSURE OPERATED GAS LIFT VALVE


INTRODUCTION

The Superior GBKRF Gas Lift Valve is a 1" OD slickline retrievable gas lift valve. The GBKRF is production pressure operated and is used in continuous flow gas lift installations. The productionpressure sensitive GBKRF valve is used to enhance production by injecting highpressure gas from the casing/tubing annulus, into the production fluid. Carefully controlled quantities of gas lighten the fluid column allowing natural reservoir pressure to push the fluid up the tubing.
FEATURES Externally adjusted spring Cross-over seat design Integral reverse check Simple design, modular construction Available in various alloys and elastomers Unitized bellows nitrogen containment Port sizes 1/8" - 1/4

APPLICATION AND OPERATION

The GBKRF is bellows actuated; spring loaded, and normally closed. The valve components are available in either stainless steel or nickel alloys for corrosion resistance in wells with high concentrations of H2S and/or CO2. The metal used conforms to NACE standard MR0175 for sulfide stress cracking resistant metallic materials.

Superior Energy Services Gas Lift Division Products Catalog

Constructed of multi-ply Monel, the bellows of the GBKRF is subjected to a special hydraulic forming process to set all the convolutions of the bellows so that each convolution accepts an equal amount of stress during valve operation. Also, during the manufacturing process, the component parts of the bellows assembly are unitized by induction brazing which enables the bellows to isolate pressure without the use of elastomers. The GBKRF floating seat is available with a choice of 1/8" to 1/4 port sizes. An internal guide precisely aligns the stem tip with the valve seat during every operation of the valve. Before installation, the spring of the GBKRF gas lift valve is adjusted to establish the valves operating pressure. The GBKRF valve is installed in the side pocket of a KB series style mandrel either at the surface, before the tubing string is installed in the well or by standard slickline methods in a completed well. The GBKRF is designed to accept a GBK-2 top latch that locks the valve in the mandrel pocket. When the valve has been located in the mandrel pocket, the latch ring of the GBK-2 engages the latch lug located above the mandrel pocket and secures the valve in the pocket. When set in the mandrel pocket, the two packing sets on the GBKRF valve seal above and below the casing ports in the mandrel pocket. Tubing pressure enters the valve nose, is routed past the velocity-closed reverse flow check disk and upward through the crossover seat. The GBKRF crossover seat is designed with bypass holes to allow production pressure to act on the effective area of the valves bellows. When the production fluid pressure, acting on the effective area of the bellows minus the port area plus the injection pressure working on the port area overcomes the force produced by the valves spring, the bellows is expanded. This compresses the spring and the valve stem tip is lifted off the valve seat, opening the valve. High-pressure injection gas in the casing annulus enters the valve through the external port in the seat housing. As the valve is opened, the injection gas flows upward through the bore of the seat housing and then travels downward through the holes in the crossover seat. The injection gas flows downward, past the reverse flow check dart, out the nose of the valve and into the production tubing. When the production pressure at valve depth drops below the valves set pressure, the valve spring pushes the bellows downward causing the ball of the stem tip to seat and close the valve. The check dart, installed in the valves check body, prevents reverse flow through the valve. The check dart seals against a hard/soft seat combination.

The rugged solid construction and the use of premium materials provide a long service life. The GBKO-3 orifice valve is used to control the flow of gas from the injection conduit to the production conduit at valve depth. Before installation in the mandrel, the GBKO-3 should be fitted with a floating seat orifice of the appropriate size. The valve, with the GBK-2 top latch, is installed in the pocket of a Superior KB series style side pocket mandrel. The valve and latch are installed in the pocket of the selected mandrel either at the surface before the tubing string is run into the well or by standard slickline methods into an already completed well. NOTE: If the initial installation includes a hydraulic set packer, the GBKO-3 should not be run in the mandrel. A GDK-1 or E dummy should be used to attain the pressure integrity required to set the packer. When set in the mandrel pocket, the two packing sets on the valve seal above and below the casing ports in the mandrel pocket. In operation, the injection gas enters the valve though the mandrel ports at the midpoint of the valve, travels through the valve port, past the integral check element, out the nose and into the production conduit. The volumes, injection cycles and injection pressure through the valve are regulated at the surface by an adjustable choke. Reverse flow through the valve is prevented by an integral check element.

SUPERIOR GJ-20 INJECTION PRESSURE OPERATED GAS LIFT VALVE


INTRODUCTION

The Superior GJ-20 Gas Lift Valve is a 11/2 OD conventional gas lift valve designed for use in either continuous flow or intermittent flow gas lift installations. The valve is bellows-operated, nitrogencharged and normally closed. The simplicity of the GJ-20 design assures a long operating life.
FEATURES Conventional type valve Nitrogen charged bellows Floating seat to promote positive stem/seat Injection pressure operated Dual seat nitrogen containment Special bellows treatment to prolong life Available in various alloys and elastomers 3/16 1/2 port sizes

APPLICATION AND OPERATION

The bellows of the GJ-20 Gas Lift Valve is constructed of three-ply Monel. During manufacture, the bellows is placed in a hydrostatic pressure chamber and subjected to external pressure. This special hydraulic forming process seats all the convolutions of the valve bellows so that each convolution accepts an equal amount of stress during valve operation. The bellows of the GJ-20 valve can accept a wide range of internal set pressures to suit individual well

Superior Energy Services Gas Lift Division Products Catalog

conditions. During manufacture, the component parts of the GJ-20 bellows assembly are unitized by a silver soldering process that enables the nitrogen pressure charge to be sealed within the bellows without the use of elastomers. To provide additional protection against alteration of the valve pressure charge, the tail plug of the GJ-20 valve is fitted with both a copper gasket and an o-ring. These two sealing elements offer double protection against fluid leaking into the bellows housing. The design of the GJ-20 Gas Lift Valve includes a bubble-tight seal between the valve stem tip and floating seat. GJ-20 seats are available in six port sizes: 3/16, 1/4, and 5/16 3/8, 7/16 and 1/2". This selection of port sizes enables the operator to inject gas at selected volumes and rates of flow to suit changing well conditions and operator needs. The seats are available in either Monel or tungsten carbide. All tungsten carbide seats are lapped with the tungsten carbide stem tips as matched pairs to ensure a leak proof seal. An additional feature of the GJ-20 valve is an internal stem guide that guides the tungsten carbide ball into precise alignment with the valve seat with every operation of the valve. The GJ-20 valve is designed so that the valve seat and stem tip can be replaced without disassembling the entire valve.
VALVE APPLICATION

Prior to installation, the dome of the GJ-20 valve is charged with nitrogen to establish the valve operating pressure. The valve is then attached either to a Superior GJ-20 Reverse Flow Check Valve, and installed on one of two Superior conventional gas lift mandrels, the standard GC or GC Deflector Lug Mandrels. The operator can assemble the GJ-20 valve, the reverse flow check valve and the selected mandrel in any one of four completion designs. The GJ-20 valve can operate either by injection pressure or production pressure and well fluids may be produced either through the tubing or the casing. In the standard completion design, the GJ-20 valve is operated by injection pressure and well fluids are produced through the tubing. In this design, the GJ20 Gas Lift Valve and the GJ-20 Reverse Flow Check Valve are installed on the selected mandrel. In operation, the high-pressure injection gas enters the ports in the valve body from the casing annulus and acts upon the bellows. When the high-pressure injection gas overcomes the pre-set nitrogen charge pressure within the bellows, the bellows is compressed and the valve stem tip is lifted off the valve seat, opening the valve. The injection gas flows through the bore of the seat, down through the check valve and into the production tubing. If the highpressure injection gas in the casing annulus at valve depth drops below the valve set pressure, the valve bellows extends downward, causing the ball of the stem tip to seat and close the valve. The GB-1 Reverse Flow Check Valve prevents reverse flow thought the valve. The check elements in the GJ-20 check valve seats tightly against both a soft seat and a metal-to-metal seat.

SUPERIOR GJ-40 CONVENTIONAL REVERSE FLOW CHECK VALVES


INTRODUCTION

The Superior GJ-40 Conventional Reverse Flow Check Valves are 1 velocity check valves used with Superior conventional gas lift valves that do not have integral reverse flow check valves. These check valves protect the casing from backflow through valves below the working valve, allow application of pressure to the tubing for circulation or acidizing and prevent commingling of production fluids in dual gas lift installations.
FEATURES Integral reverse check Includes hard and soft seats Available in standard or premium materials

APPLICATION AND OPERATION

Superior reverse flow check valves require flow to close. As the differential pressure across the valves check dart increases, the dart contacts the soft seat and then the hard seat to form a seal and close the check valve. These valves each have an elastomeric soft seat and stainless steel hard seat. The initial seal is between the valves stainless steel check dart and the soft seat. These check valves can withstand 10,000-psi differential pressure and can be converted from velocity check valves to positive check valves by the addition of a spring. The flow area for the 1 OD GB1 check valve is equivalent to a 5/16 port.

Plungers

SUPERIOR SINGLE PAD PLUNGER

INTRODUCTION The Superior single pad plunger is designed for optimum performance in wells with damaged or defective tubing.

APPLICATION & OPERATION The spring loaded pads expand and contract to compensate for any inconsistencies in the tubing thus creating a consistent seal against the walls of the tubing and maximizing efficiency. The plunger has the ability to collapse the outside diameter so that the plunger can pass through tight spots in the tubing. In addition, the plunger can be used without broaching the tubing.

The pads restrict leakage or slippage which capitalizes on the wells pressure to maximize lift efficiency. The pads are made from 17-4ph stainless steel. This makes the Superior Single Pad Plunger more resistant to wear caused by bad or worn production tubing. The life expectancy of the pads depends on the number of cycles that the plunger runs.

SUPERIOR BRUSH PLUNGER

INTRODUCTION The Superior dual pad plunger is designed for optimum performance in wells that produce sand, salt and/or coal fines.

APPLICATION & OPERATION If a well is producing sand, salt and coal fines, a brush plunger provides an effective seal for these marginally producing wells. The brush plunger is covered with a flexible nylon brush that allows the plunger to travel in the tubing despite foreign materials. The brush effectively removes sand, salt and coal fines that accumulate on the walls of the tubing. The diameter of the brush is slightly larger than the plunger body, so it creates an effective seal by adapting to deviations in the tubing. The brush design affords heavy durability in harsh well conditions. The Superior Brush Plunger is designed for optimal operations in: .

INTRODUCTION The Superior spiral plunger with rifling is designed for optimum performance in wells with that make formation sand, frac sand and paraffin.

APPLICATION & OPERATION The spiral plunger is designed with rifling to improve the gas turbulence and increase sealing efficiencies. The rifling on the upper shoulder and bottom increases the efficiencies by creating a vortex of gas and fluid, causing the plunger to spin and provide better sealing and travel velocities. The spiral plunger with rifling is available in 2 and 21/2 sizes. All spiral plungers are available in 10, 12 and 17 lengths. Standard metallurgy is 4140 heattreated, cold rolled steel it is also available in 174ph stainless steel for wells with harsher environments.

SUPERIOR BYPASS PLUNGER

INTRODUCTION The Superior bypass plunger is designed to fall in the well against flow at a higher rate than a conventional plunger.

APPLICATION & OPERATION The bypass plunger bypass locking mechanism allows the plunger to be locked in the open or closed position to accommodate movement. In the locked open position, the plunger will fall thru flow provided by the well and the bypass remains open until the plunger strikes the bottom hole bumper spring. In the closed position, the plunger return to the surface with a full load of fluid and not open until it strikes the lubricator. The locking mechanism will prevent premature shifting of the bypass rod to the other position during movement.

SUPERIOR BOTTOM HOLE BUMPER SPRING

INTRODUCTION The Superior Bottom Hole Bumper Spring (BHBS) is installed at the bottom of the well in the tubing and absorbs the impact of the plunger when it hits bottom to prevent damage to the seating nipple and tubing.

APPLICATION & OPERATION The BHBS minimizes downhole restrictions which yields increased production. A BHBS is either dropped from the surface or installed by wireline. If needed, a ball and seat can be added to retain liquid in the tubing. The BHBS has evolved from field application and testing with input from various operators. Because of its importance in protecting the well and extending the life of the plunger lift system, the BHBS is designed for maximum durability and is engineered to actually minimize downhole restrictions and sand cutting. The results: increased production and profits. Improvements to the spring design and metallurgy guarantees the longest life BHBS available on the market today. The elimination of the ball in the flow stream has provided increased flow area to reduce pressure drop thru the seat area while in operation.

SUPERIOR BOTTOM HOLE BUMPER SPRING

Standard metallurgy is 4140 heat-treated, cold rolled steel it is also available in 17-4ph stainless steel for wells with harsher environments. The Superior Bottom Hole Bumper Spring can be modified for installation into wells with:

SUPERIOR STAR STOP

INTRODUCTION The Superior Star Stop is a cost effective bottom stop for a plunger lift installation.

APPLICATION & OPERATION The Star Stop is installed in a No-Go nipple and provides a cost effective bottom stop for a plunger lift installation. The stop is made from 4140 hardened steel and is easy to install and remove from the well.

SUPERIOR STAGE TOOL

INTRODUCTION The Superior stage tool is a cost effective solution to optimize production from deep and/or low GLR wells.

APPLICATION & OPERATION The Superior stage tool is designed to be a lowcost and efficient method of lift to increase and optimize production form deep and/or low GLR oil and gas wells. The installation utilizes two plungers one installed below the stage tool and one above it. The stage tool acts as an interface between the upper and lower plunger lift installation. The stage tool has a standing valve built into it and it eliminates the fallback of fluids, while a corresponding reduction in the flowing bottomhole pressure increases the flow of fluid from the formation. Primary applications of the Superior stage tool: Low volume wells that may require longer shut-in times to allow for fluid inflow Wells that do not have sufficient gas production to allow a one plunger system to cycle the plunger to the surface Wells that have a production packer Older wells that have a single plunger system that does not cycle to the surface Low GLR wells
