Electrohydraulic flow control and monitoring system

Proteus electrohydraulic flow control and monitoring system

Enables well performance optimization

Proteus electrohydraulic flow control and monitoring system is an integrated modular unit that enables operators to simplify well design, reduce installation complexity, increase downhole control, and efficiently optimize production. 

The system combines a Universal Electrohydraulic Module, field-proven flow control valve, single or dual PT gauges, and an optional absolute position sensor in a single compact assembly. The unit is controlled from surface using a powerful, user-friendly operating system.

Rated to 7,500 psi [51.7 MPa]
Rated to 325 degF [163 degC]

Simplify intelligent completions without sacrificing control or measurement accuracy

Optimize production by rapidly managing multizonal and commingled reservoir flow with the Proteus electrohydraulic flow control and monitoring system. Controlled from surface with powerful, user-friendly software, the Proteus system integrates a downhole control module, dual pressure and temperature quartz gauges, an 8-position flow control valve, and an absolute position sensor in a compact assembly. 

Minimize control lines to reduce complexity

Design your well with up to twelve Proteus system stations on one electric and 2 hydraulic lines, reducing run-in complexity and requiring only three wellhead penetrations. When multiple systems are installed together, you can operate individual valves sequentially within minutes, enabling rapid choke positioning for multiple zones in a short sequence from the surface control room. A hydraulic override is also included as a contingency to simultaneously open all system valves with a single pressure actuation.
