The main purpose of the FIV valve is to isolate the reservoir from the wellbore, but the valve’s versatility can be seen in the broad range of applications in which it can be used, including fluid loss control, underbalanced perforating, well control barrier operations, deepset lubrication, and multizone isolation. Because of the rotating ball and floating seal design, the valve is debris tolerant, making it especially useful in sandface completions.
