Petroleum and natural gas industries - Drilling and production equipment - Part 2: Flow-control devices for side-pocket mandrels


ISO 17078-2:2007 provides requirements for subsurface flow-control devices used in side-pocket mandrels (hereafter called flow-control devices) intended for use in the worldwide petroleum and natural gas industry. This includes requirements for specifying, selecting, designing, manufacturing, quality-control, testing and preparation for shipping of flow-control devices. Additionally, it includes information regarding performance testing and calibration procedures. The installation and retrieval of flow-control devices is outside the scope of ISO 17078-2:2007. Additionally, ISO 17078-2:2007 is not applicable to flow-control devices used in centre-set mandrels or with tubing-retrievable applications. ISO 17078-2:2007 does not include requirements for side-pocket mandrels, running, pulling, and kick-over tools, and latches that might or might not be covered in other ISO specifications. Reconditioning of used flow-control devices is outside of the scope of ISO 17078-2:2007.
