Where Safety and Efficiency Work Together

Blowout Preventer (BOP) Testing is a key oilfield service that Triple J Oilfield Services, LLC provides in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, North Dakota, Arkansas, Texas, and Louisiana and even the Middle East. Pressure Testing during the drilling, completion, and production is a core service we provide to the energy industry. Our BOP testing expertise allows companies to enhance safety, efficiency, and environmental controls. Because of our decades of experience and our attention to detail, in over 20 years of experience, we have never experienced a blowout or significant environmental spill.

Though we are world experts in BOP Testing, Well Control, Nipple Ups and Downs, Stack lifting, Environmental Pad Reclamation and Maintenance, and Torque and Test services, we also provide exceptional onsite or consultation for oilfield services such as Workover Drilling, Production testing, Stimulation, Wire Line & perforating, and Health, Safety & Environmental analysis.

It is absolutely essential to have properly trained personnel for well control activities. Well control consists of two basic components: an active component consisting of drilling fluid pressure monitoring activities, and a passive component consisting of the Blowout Preventers (BOPs)

The first line of defense in well control is to have sufficient drilling fluid pressure in the well hole. During drilling, underground fluids such as gas, water, or oil under pressure (the formation pressure) opposes the drilling fluid pressure (mud pressure). If the formation pressure is greater than the mud pressure, there is the possibility of a blowout.

Blowout Prevention Program

Potential Hazard:

  • Receiving injuries caused by loss of well control.

  • Possible Solutions:

  • Appropriate training for tasks performed. Example topics include the following:

    • Causes of kicks, including detection

    • Pressure concepts and calculations

    • Well control procedures

    • Gas characteristics and behavior

    • Fluids

    • Constant bottom hole pressure well control methods

    • Well control equipment

    • Regulatory information

    • Use of appropriate well control equipment including:

      • Specification

      • Installation

      • Maintenance

      The second line of defense for the workers and the well in order to prevent a blowout is the group of equipment called blowout preventers (BOPs). BOPs and associated valves are installed on top of the casing head before drilling a head after rigging up. These high-pressure safety valves and associated equipment are designed to shut off the well hole and prevent the escape of underground fluids and prevent a blowout from occurring. After installation, the BOP and associated valves are pressure tested to insure integrity and proper operations.

      The BOP and associated equipment consists of:

      • BOP Stack

      • Annular BOP

      • Ram-Type BOP

      • Choke Manifold

      • Accumulator

      A BOP installation could consist of both annular and ram-type BOPs assembled into a stack. Also, there can be a kill line valve and a choke line valve. The choke line valve is used to redirect the mud from the well bore to the choke manifold during a kick. The kill line valve is used to direct drilling fluid to the BOP during a kick.

      Annular BOPs are designed to form a seal in the annular space between the drill pipe and the wellbore and are usually mounted at the top of the BOP stack.

      Ram-type BOPs have rubber faced steel rams that come together with great force to seal the wellbore. Usually two or more ram-type BOP's are mounted in the BOP stack.

      A choke manifold is a system of valves used to circulate out a kick and to circulate mud in of the proper weight. This device responds automatically to a kick and can prevent a blowout if properly installed and maintained.

      The BOP control system, called an accumulator, provides the energy to operate the blowout preventers.

      This system consists of:

      • Compressed gas bottles

      • Regulator valves

      • Pumps

      • Hydraulic reservoir

      • Control manifold

      • Control valves
