Contain and control damage ahead of time

Assessing risk potential on your rig is crucial to ensuring safety before, during and after problems occur. Baker Hughes's proven blowout prevention (BOP) systems are configured to anticipate and combat the risks of everyday operations—even in the toughest environments. Trusted worldwide to provide reliability, operational performance, well control, and configuration flexibility, Baker Hughes BOP systems mean improved safety and increased uptime.

The best in the business

Drilling contractors have called the GX™ Annular BOP “the best annular in the business” for two reasons: exceptional performance, plus maximum uptime. The single packing unit has provided continuous service for up to one year, and it has continued to hold pressure after exposure to extreme temperatures and extensive stripping. The GX can strip and seal on all pipe sizes and achieve complete shutoff­—in the field and in laboratory tests.

Our 18¾” Compact™ RAM BOP is designed to hold pressure at 15,000 psi from 30°F to 500°F, is rated for water depths to 10,000+ feet, and has worked on the seabed continuously for one year during drilling of a 34,000-foot well. It can also add hundreds of hours of drilling time annually when configured to seal upside-down as a subsea stack test valve (SSTV), so required pressure tests can be completed with the drill pipe in place.

The Sentry™ Dual Workover RAM BOP is shorter and lighter than a standard BOP—without sacrificing strength or reliability. Meeting the special needs of workover operations, this system is available in 3,000 and 5,000 psi versions, making it operational with a wide range of accumulator systems. Easy maintenance with standard tools, interchangeable parts between both models and various size options allow the field-proven Sentry BOP to provide operational flexibility and high availability.

Our BOP systems increase uptime, reduce unplanned stack pulls, and lower between-well maintenance time to service system components. With best-in-class availability, operating ease and proven high-pressure performance, you can worry less and achieve more.

Key advantages include: 

  • Increased uptime and availability
  • Reduced between-well maintenance time
  • Fewer unplanned stack pulls
  • API-monogrammed
  • Approved by pressure tests at high psi
  • Approved by high-temperature tests of up to 500°F
  • Range of models to meet your specific needs
