This paper describes the development and field testing of a wireline-retrievable, subsurface safety valve tailored for jet pump production systems. An examination of earlier safety system components adapted to hydraulic pump enhanced production systems is provided to show the evolution of design features involved in this new valve. From conceptual design stages to the actual field implementation and operation, a versatile pump power fluid-operated safety valve specifically designed for jet pumps is presented.
