HOUSTON -- T-3 Energy Services has received a $3 million purchase order for two 18 ¾-in. (48-cm) 10,000 psi T-3 Model 6012 Diamond Series Double Ram subsea blowout preventers (BOPs) to be used offshore Brazil.

The subsea pressure control products will be fitted with standard operators for normal well control operations with the exception of the upper ram cavity which will be fitted with larger bore shear operators. These larger bore products close and shear the drill string, forming a positive seal off at the wellbore to shut in the well during emergency situations.
