This part of ISO 17078 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 this part of ISO 17078. Additionally, this part of ISO 17078 is not applicable to flow-control devices used in centre-set mandrels or with tubingretrievable applications.
This part of ISO 17078 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 flowcontrol devices is outside of the scope of this part of ISO 17078.
