Risk control in the well drilling phase: BOP system reliability assessment
(Safety and Reliability of Complex Engineered Systems;, Chapter; Conference object; Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
The blowout preventer (BOP) is the main well control device used to ensure the safety of well drilling and intervention operations. The BOP is qualified for the demanding conditions that may come from uncontrolled flow ...
Reliability assessment for subsea HIPPS valves with partial stroke testing
High integrity pressure protection systems (HIPPS) have been applied in subsea applications to prevent accidents due to over-pressurization. A subsea HIPPS can be regarded as a complete functional loop consisting of sensors, ...
A new design concept of Blowout Preventer for decision support
The Blowout Preventer (BOP) system is used for controlling blowout risks in drilling operations. The system is implemented to shut down an oil and gas well when the well fluids have entered the wellbore. All BOP systems ...
