We do steam injection as an enhanced recovery method. In the past, chokes were used to control the steam flow, but the operators complained that they often stick. In one area they are currently using y-pattern globe valves instead of the choke. They use a flow meter to adjust the y-pattern valve.

What are the pro & cons of this approach?
