API 17f (ISO13628-6) clarification

API 17f (ISO13628-6) clarification

API 17f (ISO13628-6) clarification

Hello Everybody,

I need a clarification on a section of API 17F (ISO13628-6), par., Flushing of SCSSV Hydraulic Circuit:

Paragraph states:

"Provisions for flushing the hydraulic circuit from control module to SCSSV during installation and in the operational phase shall be considered as part of front-end engineering. This function can be implemented by using a dedicated flushing valve in the SCM. Flushing operations shall not result in HP system pressure drop that can affect other wells."


1) Could you clarify the meaning of this statement?

2) How is this realized in practice?

Thanks for the replies in advance.
