HOUSTON -- T-3 Energy Services Inc. has designed and manufactured the T-3 Diamond series model 6012 subsea double ram blowout preventer, fitted with subsea compact tandem booster bonnets and casing shear bonnets. T-3 Energy has completed prototype evaluations and factory acceptance testing.
The company says this is the first of four sets of subsea compact tandem booster bonnets for shearing sealing rams for the T-3 model 6012 subsea BOPs scheduled to be shipped.
This subsea BOP is currently available in an 18-3/4-in. (48-cm) bore size and is designed for 10,000 psi working pressure blowout preventers with hydraulically actuated mechanical locks as well as T-3 proprietary compact tandem booster bonnets and blind shear rams.
"In conjunction with and the support of major drilling contractors, we have designed proprietary products which will enhance our offerings in the marketplace by adding a subsea line of products to our traditional surface drilling products," says Gus D. Halas, T-3 Energy's chairman, president and CEO. "This period of time for T-3 marks a defining moment for us."
