FS Fluid Loss Isolation Barrier Valve

For efficient management of your assets, Halliburtons FS fluid loss isolation barrier
valve provides a reliable, interventionless solution for fluid loss control in your well
completion, eliminating potential formation damage.

e FS valve isolates the formation below the uppermost gravel-pack packer before
the upper completion has been installed and can be utilized in frac pack, gravel pack
and standalone screen applications.

e FS valve provides a reliable means of:

Preventing fluid loss to formations aer completing initial gravel pack operations

Isolating formations during up-hole operations throughout the life of the well

Helping to reduce costs on subsea or deep wells through the use of

interventionless technology

Use as a barrier in a well suspension system

e closure device is a proven, high-performance ball mechanism that provides

a positive bi-directional seal in brine and oil-based mud environments. e
debris-tolerant, non-translating ball design eliminates unnecessary movement
within the mechanism during opening and closing operations allowing operation
in debris-laden environments.

Optimum placement of the FS valve is normally below the gravel pack or liner
hanger assembly. Washpipe, located on the bottom of the service tool, is extended
through the valve. A collet shiing tool is attached to the end of the washpipe,
which on retrieval closes the valve, immediately isolating the formation and
allowing inflow or positive pressure-testing above the ball. Remote actuation in
the form of hydraulic pressure cycles is then used to open the valve aer upper
completion installation.
