These valves, called Subsurface Controlled Subsurface Safety Valves (SSCSVs), or velocity valves, are sized or configured to close when the loss of tubing backpressure from a disaster causes the well to flow in excess of its normal production rates. Velocity valves are sized using programs, developed by the valve manufacturers, that
