The “Wellhead Control and Safety Panel” (WHCP for its acronym in English) is a fully integrated hydraulic control system for the execution of valve operations located at the head (“Tree or X-Mas Tree”) of oil and associated gas production wells, such as:

  • “Storm” or “bottom” valve also known as Down Hole Valve (DHV) or Surface Controlled Subsurface Safety Valve (SCSSV).
  • “Master” Safety Valve, also known as “Master Valve” (MV) or Surface Safety Valve (SSV).
  • “Wing” or “Production” valve, also known as Wing Valve (WV)

According to the operating conditions of each Well or group of Wells, the design of these TSCP/WHCP’s is very variable and it is necessary to adjust it to the specific needs of each location.

There are many options available for the design and manufacture of these Boards, such as:

  • Special Working Pressure Levels
  • Pneumatic-Hydraulic Control
  • Electronic-Hydraulic Control or
  • Purely Hydraulic Control

As well as particular adaptations for:

  • Bypass Sections (By-Pass),
  • Choke Valve Control,
  • Maintenance,
  • Operation of Water Injection Systems,
  • Link to Digital Control Systems, Etc.

    At TRAC we work hand in hand with our clients in identifying their needs and developing the TSCP/WHCP design that best meets the specific requirements for an efficient and timely execution of its manufacture, as well as the training of Installers, Operators and support during Commissioning and Start-up.

    We offer TSCP/WHCP solutions with design expertise for high availability using SIL2 and SIL3 capable components.

    Additionally, we have the WASP® Family of PREFABRICATED products in “Self Contained Unit” format (Self Contained Unit = SCU) for isolated solutions that require:

    • Control of one or two surface valves (WV, MV/SSV)
    • Control of Surface and Subsurface Valves (WV + MV/SSV + DHV/SCSSV)
    • Manual pumps
    • Electro-Hydraulic Pumps with Solar Energy Systems incorporated
    • Digital Monitoring of Well Pressure Behavior
    • Incorporation into SCADA Supervision Systems via Modbus RTU or TCP/IP Protocol
    • Integration to 3G / 4G / 5G networks
