With an area of more than forty thousands square kilometers, rich geological reserves have been proved in Sulige gas field and thousands of gas wells have been constructed there. It is a high cost to open or shut in so many wells manually and labour intensity is great for workers. To meet the requirements of matching technologies and management methods for Sulige gas field development, devices of gas well opening and shutting in for remote control were developed before, which could implement the functions of emergency cutting off and opening well within a limit of low pressure. This paper introduced the development of a new type of gas well opening device for remote control, which could open gas wells at high pressure. The whole structure, working principle and design of key parts are introduced. Meanwhile, field tests were developed. The device this paper developed could realize the function of opening wells in wide range of pressure remotely, and could improve the level of automation of gas field.
