Adapt the choke valve to the operating environment and increase uptime.
Choke Inlet Pressure

H2S Content : 55 ppm
After hydraulic fracturing, the fluids pumped downhole must return to surface through a flowback tree. These fluids can contain large amounts of frac plug debris and other solids that can be damaging for chokes in the tree. The choke trim often must be replaced multiple times during flowback, increasing costs, NPT, and the risk of exposure to H2S, other harmful substances, and high pressures. The operator decided to test the durability of the CAM20-MT multitrim choke valve with external floating sleeve (FS) trim—installed in a 2 1/16-in, 5,000-psi flowback tree—on one of its wells in the Black Hawk field, Eagle Ford Shale.
