instrumented barrier plug

The iBP (Instrumented Barrier Plug) is designed for oilfield service,

such as monitoring annular pressure and temperature in items subject to API 6A classification.

It is suitable where there is a requirement for uncompromised pressure isolation

behind unbroken and non-penetrated metal barriers.



The iBP monitors pressure and temperature in an annulus volume contained behind double nonpenetrated metal Barriers. It achieves this in full compliance with API 6A. Additionally, all DNV and NORSOK Drilling, Safety and Instrument requirements are met. The iBP apparatus and associated technology is protected by national and international patents. 

*iBP is currently not available for sale in Norway.

Full pressure integrity is retained at full pressure rating

Providing uncompromised non-penetrated full metal-to-metal sealing according to industry requirements.

The valve integral to the VR plug allows instrument replacement and change out. This can be achieved with a simple Unbrako® key.
