Blowout Preventers (BOPs) are safety devices used to “prevent” the uncontrolled flow of liquids and gases during well drilling operations. Blowout preventers are large, high-pressure valves that are capable of being remotely controlled. When the driller closes the valve, a pressure-tight seal is formed at the top of the well, preventing the fluids from escaping. The WEATHEROCK GROUP is also one of the leading Blowout Preventer (BOP) Manufacturers.
Basically, there are two major types of Blowout Preventers, Annular (also known as Spherical) and RAM. Annular BOPs are usually mounted to the very top of the BOP stack. The drilling crew then mounts two, three, or four RAM BOPs below the Annular preventer. If a kick is detected, the annular is usually closed first and then the RAM is used as a backup if the Annular should fail. Understanding each component of a rig’s safety system means understanding how they work together, as well as their individual contributions, for efficient and safe operation.
Essentially a blowout preventer can shut off the valve leading underneath, the machinery to stop any liquid from surfacing in a dangerous explosion, or a kick. A level of containment must be maintained when working with the mud and substances that could cause breaks in the flow of extraction. There are several features in a BOP that play different roles, and two general types of valves to assist the apparatus in case of a bad kick. Blowout Preventer (BOP) Manufacturers means no one other than WEATHEROCK GROUP.
