squeeze manifold

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]

A manifold connected within the surface treating lines that is configured to enable control and routing of fluids during a squeeze operation. Most squeeze manifolds have treating line connections with the tubing string, annulus, pit line and pump unit. Isolation valves enable the appropriate flowpath to be selected, and pressure sensors included in tubing and annulus lines monitor the key treatment pressures. In some squeeze treatments, such as squeeze cementing, it may be desirable to reverse-circulate excess cement from the tubing string. The squeeze manifold enables a change in fluid routing to be quickly and easily achieved from one station.
