The Model KW Storm Valve is a combination back pressure valve and safety joint that is run above a right
‐hand compression set service packer, in order to provide well control protection during temporary abandonment of the well, without having to pull the bottom hole assembly. The KW Storm Valve allows the packers to be set and permit disconnection and retrieval of the drill pipe or tubing and the upper sub of the valve, while at the same time automatically closing the Storm Valve, isolating the drill pipe below the Storm Packer.
2 FEATURES ● Can be easily run by rotating the tubing string to open and close the valve ● In emergency, can pump down the plug to open the drill pipe passage ● Designed to be used with right‐hand compression set packers only
3 OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS 3.1 RUNNING The Storm Valve is made up directly onto the top sub of the Storm Packer. Use the Recommended Make Up Torque chart to determine the optimal make up torque.
Warning: Tongs and back‐ups must be on the immediate Box and Pin Subs being tightened. Do not torque through any of the valve or packer internal connections.
