Title: VALVE REMOVAL PLUG ASSEMBLY
Abstract:
A system includes a first valve removal (VR) plug (42), a VR plug housing (92), and a second VR plug (250). The first VR plug (42) includes a sensor (112) configured to sense a characteristic of a first volume (104) adjacent to the first VR plug (42) and to wirelessly transmit a signal indicative of the sensed characteristic, wherein the first VR plug (42) is configured to form a first seal with a flange (38) of a mineral extraction component. The VR plug housing (92) includes a first flange (94) configured to be disposed about the first VR plug (42) and to couple to the flange (38) of the mineral extraction component, a second VR plug recess (152) comprising an interior threaded surface (154), and a second flange (96) disposed about the second VR plug recess (152). The second VR plug (250) includes a threaded exterior surface (252) configured to engage with the threaded interior surface (154) of the second VR plug recess (152) to form a second seal between the second VR plug (250) and the VR plug housing (92).
