Rice University - Principal Investigator: Ed Akin
Objective: Regulations require the deployment of a SCSSV in Offshore wells. Current SCSSV designs are not available for XHPHT conditions. Rice University graduate students have been challenged to develop a SCSSV for a 5.5" x 30,000 psi WP at elevated temperature of 450o F in this project.
Period of Performance: October 16, 2008 to October 15, 2010
