Drilltools Timeline

Drilltools Ltd. has been established and trading for 7 years now so we thought we would pinpoint a few key moments we have had over the years.

As you'll know from our previous post, the DT valve has completed over 100 successful runs in the field, which is a huge achievement for us. The DT valve has come a long way in the last 7 years and hopefully this timeline gives you an insight into the process of getting to this stage.

DT Flapper Safety Valve Animation

We thought we would share with you all a short animation of how our flapper safety valve works.

Please give it a watch and don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions!

DT Flapper Safety Valve

We are delighted to announce that our DT Flapper Safety Valve has had over 100 successful runs to date and has become a standard addition to drilling BHAs in several HPHT operations.

The DT valve comes in four sizes and incorporates a combination of design features to provide solutions required to address a number of oilfield drilling functions where conventional designs have significant reliability issues.

DT Valve Run History

Modular Flapper Safety Valves

Based on previous success with our Flapper Safety Valves, we have launched prototype testing of our new modular Flapper Safety Valves. These incorporate a stackable design with valve sections which are fully independent and individually meet NORSOK well barrier requirements.

Following prototype testing we will commission an independent design review and API spec 7 NRV testing to launch a further fully certified product to the market.

Further updates will follow as the project progresses!
