Blowout Preventer (BOP) Testing is a key
oilfield service that Solomon Energy 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.

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:
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.
