The adoption of new technologies and approaches has been the hallmark of the unconventional oil and gas market for nearly twenty years.

IMI CCI has taken to this similar mindset by establishing a dedicated team of customer and industry focused people to delivery shale choke valves in North and South America.

The customer focused teams handle all aspects of the business with the support of the proven engineering support of the Valve Doctor program and dedicated support functions. Led by Dakota Turrentine, the team has developed and delivered several standard product designs to customers in Canada’s Montney play, US Eagle Ford and Haynesville, and Argentina’s Vaca Muerta.

“Paramount to our success is ensuring the customer maintains production and get’s the longer production time our technology can offer over the other products on the market” says Dakota.

The design has the flexibility to accommodate all types of actuation and has a plug-and-play trim design that allows for field specific optimization.

One VP operations customer said: “Operators unfamiliar with multi-stage flow control really must see this and spend some time with it to understand the flexibility and power of this design. Even after six months of operation I wasn’t clear with why the control aspects were so much different from what we have been using. This is really cool technology.”

IMI CCI continues to innovate on the standard platform to provide field specific improvements. Contact one of our customer support team members for more:​
