Blowout preventers online: The basics
At Oilfield Supply, we carry numerous styles of ram and annular preventers. On the first contingency, the annular blow out style is designed to shut your well without actually cutting or damaging any of your drilling pipe. When the preventer’s hard rubber element is engaged, it expands to close the gap between your outside casing and your drill pipe. The preventer closes around your drill string, casing and anything else that’s currently downhole. You can also continue operations with the annular preventer closed, say, if you’re taking a kick and you need to continue, or if you need to rotate a pipe and bring it out of the hole. Typically the annular is on top of the blow out preventer stack. On our site we carry the following:
- Hydrill Style
- Cameron Style
- Shaffer Style
A ram-style preventer is used for a second contingency, and it’s a moon-shaped piece of equipment that’s lined with elastimer. This style closes around the drill pipe to ultimately restrict the flow of the annulus. Sheer rams, however, shut like scissors and cut the drill pipe. These are used during your fourth contingency. At Oilfield Supply we carry the Shaffer Style Ram LWP, LWS and SL.
