Subsea

Keeping product flowing in subsea assemblies and installations

Whether in shallow, deep-water, or ultradeep water, keeping product flowing from oil and gas wells requires state-of-the-art technology. It also requires specialized tooling with resilient internal components.  The equipment must be reliable enough to safeguard the environment; but also make the well economically feasible. Access to these offshore wells due to tooling or component failure is not just costly. In some cases, it can mean complete abandonment of the well – resulting in tremendous financial loss.

Importance of Seals and Sealing Solutions In Subsea Oil Extraction

In deep-water or ultradeep water fields, keeping hydrocarbons flowing through multiple tiebacks, valves, and piping is no simple task. It is no simple task to engineer sealing elements for tooling that is expected to perform, uninterrupted, sometimes for decades.

Know Your Enemy

Just a few of the enemies of sealing components in blow out preventers (BOP), wellheads, production trees, valves, tubing hangers, flowlines, umbilicals, pumps, and many other types of equipment are:

  • High pressure, high temperature (HPHT)
  • Low temperatures
  • Rapid gas decompression (RGD)
  • Explosive decompression (ED)
  • Corrosion
  • Chemical incompatibility
