S-22 Casing Heads and Spools


The Seaboard conventional wellhead system incorporates the S-22 straight bowl design with a 45 degree load shoulder.

Significant advantages of the S-22 bowl:



One bowl design that universally accepts slip-type or mandrel casing hangers Low-weight hangers for tieback applications and high capacity hangers are also accommodated due to the straight bowl and 45 degree load shoulder which diminishes hoop stress on the casing heads and spools Design concept is carried forward into the Fas-Loc and SMB-22 multibowl systems for component interchangeability and retention of superior design characteristics Damage during drilling activities is minimized, thereby decreasing the frequency of maintenance and/ or potential replacement Wear bushings can enhance the protection of important sealing surfaces Test plugs and wear bushings often wedge in tapered bowls under pressure, a possibility virtually eliminated with the S-22 bowl design

Fas

Loc

The Fas-Loc wellhead system was developed to meet all of the needs of conventional equipment while reducing much of the associated time, costs and risks. The Fas-Loc wellhead system significantly reduces rig time and associated rig costs over those utilizing conventional wellhead equipment. For multiple well programs, the diverter adapter and BOP service adapters may be transferred from well to well, eliminating the time required to nipple up and down between locations. Safety is enhanced with the Fas-Loc casing head by eliminating the requirements for torch cutting and welding operations normally associated with casing head installation. Another time saving feature is the ability to land the casing head through the BOP, eliminating the need to wait on cement. The Fas-Loc casing head bowl is designed to accept standard slip hanger arrangements. Further reducing time, the Fas-Loc tubing head makes up quickly without special tools. The Fas-Loc wellhead system easily adapts to accommodate intermediate casing strings according to the requirements of the drilling program.

SMB-22 Multibowl Systems SS-L Buttweld Sub and CMH Hanger System
Installing and removing the BOP stack is a time consuming procedure performed each time a conventional head or spool is added during drilling operations. During BOP removal, there is a potential for disaster either through a blowout or injury to the drilling crew. The compact SMB-22 multibowl wellhead system eliminates the need for one nipple up by landing multiple casing strings in one head. The SMB-22 multibowl wellhead assembly is a fullbore design. The lower casing hanger is fluted to allow ample by-pass for circulating mud and cement. The seal assembly, which lands on the flutes, also acts as a support for the upper hanger. A wide choice of tubing hanger designs are available for various service conditions. Emergency suspension systems are available for the lower hanger. The SS-L buttweld sub and CMH hanger is a versatile wellhead system offering a flanged and non-flanged means of nippling up a diverter system. Conductor and surface casing can be run through the diverter, thus saving time (one less nipple down), money, and safety. Rig time is saved by utilizing the SM-E mandrel hanger for the surface casing, which allows for faster installation of a conventional wellhead, or multibowl system, because no welding is required. The SS-L buttweld sub system is flexible to most casing programs and offers emergency equipment options.

Additional Features:

Conductor hanger may be tested externally once landed Conductor hanger seals may be re-energized, if necessary Surface casing hanger may be landed prior to cementing, eliminating the need to reciprocate Annular seal for surface casing hanger may be run through the diverter, locked in place (flanged diverter head) and tested externally Annular seal for surface casing hanger may be re-energized, if necessary All running/retrieving tools run on casing

S Tubing Heads
The S tubing head is designed to be full opening even over 7-5/8 casing. The straight bowl and 45 load shoulder allows the use of one bowl design for virtually all applications. A variety of single and dual tubing hangers are available for a wide array of service conditions and operating preferences. Multiple Completion Options SD dual tubing heads are equipped with two MC (multi-completion) guide pins located 180 apart just above the 45 load shoulder. When landing the dual tubing hanger, the MC guide pins are run in to orient the tubing hanger segments. Tubing Head Bottom Connections Standard bottom preparations for tubing heads include single or double IP seals, SP or SP-H packoff bushings. For IP secondary seal configurations, the tubing head provides injection ports through which plastic can be injected to enhance the IP seal.

S Tubing Head

SP, SP- H, and Double IP Seals

SP Secondary Seal

SP- H Secondary Seal

Double IP Secondary Seal

The SP seal is a simple press energized design comprised of an elastomer element sandwiched between two compression plates. The assembly is retained in the pocket with a snap ring. The SP- H seal is similar in design to the SP, but is better suited for use in higher pressure applications. The assembly is retained in the pocket by a threaded ring. The Double IP seal is ideal for use as crossover where moderately severe service is expected. Each seal is plastic energized, which can also be tested via a port located between the seals to verify seal integrity.

S-22 Casing Hangers


The S-22 casing hanger is a slip style hanger which automatically seals the casing annulus. During installation, the hanger is wrapped around the casing and the slip retaining screws are removed, allowing the slips to ride down the internal taper. As the casing slides through the hanger, the segmented slips grab and wedge between the tapered bowl and the casing. The annulus seal below the bowl is automatically energized by the weight of the casing as it is transferred through the slips to the 45 load shoulder in the head or spool.

S-22 Casing Hanger Minimum Casing Loads for S-22 Casing Hangers Bowl Sizes Casing Size 11 13-5/8 16
4-1/2 - 5-1/2 7 - 7-5/8 8-5/8 - 9-5/8 10-3/4 13-3/8 55,000 40,000 58,000 77,000 150,000

Casing weight must meet or exceed those listed in the chart to the right. If the minimum weight is not met, the elastomer seal may not extrude sufficiently to seal against the casings surface. If the casing weight is in excess of 50% of the casing joint strength, the seal may over-extrude and become ineffective. Alternate hangers are available for these conditions.

20

The S-22-NL casing hanger is appropriate for no load or mudline applications. The slips are set by pulling slight tension on the casing. When the tension is released, the slight casing movement sets the slips. The annulus seal above the slips is energized manually after the BOP stack is removed.

S-22-NL Casing Hanger


The S-22-HL casing hanger accommodates loads in excess of 50% of the casing joint strength. The double wedge back slip design permits the same length of slip to support a higher load without impinging the casing. The design also features a positive stop which limits extrusion of the seal.

S-22-HL Casing Hanger

Single Completion Tubing Hangers and Adapters for Land Installations

SM-E Tubing Hangers


The SM-E tubing hanger is a versatile design using elastomer seals. The hanger can be equipped with a suspension style control line preparation and isolation seals on the neck to accommodate traditional control line porting through the adapter. The control line porting can be used or ignored without affecting the functioning of the tubing hanger. The tubing hanger consists of a main body, an elastomer seal and a compression/support ring. The annulus seal is automatically energized by the weight of the tubing string. Extrusion of the seal is controlled by a positive stop between the compression/support ring and the hanger body. If the tubing weight is not sufficient to extrude the seals, it will be energized by the lockscrews used to retain the hanger in the bowl. An internal profile is provided for setting a back pressure valve.

SM-E Tubing Hanger

SM-T Tubing Hangers


The SM-T tubing hanger uses a metal taper design on the hangers neck to isolate the production flow. Metal seals are far superior to elastomers making this hanger suitable for more critical service applications. During installation, the hanger is landed and the lockscrews run in to retain the hanger and energize the annulus seal. The metal seal on the hanger neck is energized by making up the adapter. The taper on the ID of the adapter slightly opposes the OD of the tubing hanger neck, causing the neck to deform slightly. This deformation is safely within the elastic limits of the yield strength of the hanger material, permitting the connection to be broken and remade repeatedly without damaging the sealing surfaces. An internal profile is provided for setting a back pressure valve.

Single Completion Tubing Hangers and Adapters for Offshore Installations

SM-E-CL Tubing Hangers


The SM-E-CL tubing hanger provides a continuous control line setting using elastomer seals in the both hanger bowl and hanger neck. The tubing hanger consists of a main body, an elastomer seal and a compression ring. During installation, the hanger is landed and the lockscrews run in to retain the hanger and energize the annulus seal. The neck of the tubing hanger uses S seals to seal against the straight bore of the adapter. The continuous control line is supported and sealed above and below the hanger with common ferrule-type fittings. The control line exits through the adapter and is sealed off in a specially designed exit block (shown) or nipple/tapped bull plug arrangement. An internal profile is provided for setting a back pressure valve.

The SM-T-CL tubing hanger provides a continuous control line setting while using metal seals in the hanger neck to isolate the production flow. Metal seals are far superior to elastomers making this hanger suitable for more critical service applications. The tubing hanger consists of a main body, an elastomer seal and a compression ring. During installation, the hanger is landed and the lockscrews run in to retain the hanger and energize the annulus seal. The metal seal on the hanger neck is energized by making up the adapter.

ESP Feed Through Systems


When the oil is heavy or reservoir pressure is depleted, it is often necessary to resort to artificial lift methods for bringing the oil to the surface. A commonly used device is the electric submersible pump. The pump is made up into the bottom of the tubing string as it is run in the hole. An electric cable, which will eventually transmit power to the pump, is run side by side with the tubing string. The ESP tubing hanger is eccentrically aligned, offsetting the tubing string to allow passage of the electric cable through the hanger to the outside. A mandrel with a uniquely designed, pigtail style electric plug connector on each end creates a totally sealed conduit for passing the electricity from the outside power source through the wellhead housing and into the production annulus. ESP equipment is designed for hostile environments and can be adapted for temperatures up to 350F, pressures up to 10,000 psi and for highly corrosive service. Adapter Assemblies ESP systems are often used in rework applications. Adapter assemblies are available in common sizes and pressure ratings to connect to existing wellheads without removing the tubing head. They are completely compatible with the ESP hangers and mandrels and provide the simplest method for converting a well to an ESP system.

SD and SD-CL Dual Completion Tubing Hangers


Dual completion tubing hangers are segmented designs available for both offshore and onshore applications (with or without continuous control lines). Both designs can be used in the SD tubing head. The annulus seal is energized by running in the lockscrews after both hanger segments are landed. The SD-CL hangers provide a control line nipple which supports and seals the control line while protecting it from the extrusion seal. Both the SD and SD-CL designs use seal subs which are installed after the hanger is landed to seal on the dual adapter. An internal profile is provided in each hanger segment for setting a back pressure valve.

Tension Tubing Hangers


The Tension tubing head and hanger system was designed to allow the tubing string to be lowered into the production casing in order to provide an overpull of the string weight prior to engaging the load pins in the landed position. This compensates for elongation due to temperature variations during the completion of the well to ensure that the tubing string is not exposed to buckling that can occur with conventional tubing hanger applications. Tension tubing hangers utilize an MRS metal seal between the hanger neck and adapter to isolate the production flow. A continuous control line feature is standard with the Tension tubing hanger system that allows the control line to exit through the adapter and be sealed in a specially designed exit block. The Tension tubing head and hanger system is available in applications up to 20,000 psi and all API trim levels. Additional Features:

Fluted thru-bore Tension hanger available for liquid or N2 type annular completions BOP slick joint utilized to maintain N 2 in annulus during hanger completion DHCV pressure controlled during completions

Slim Line Tubing Hangers


The SL tubing hanger system is designed for use over TLC (Tubingless Completion) equipment. Once production through a larger tubing string begins to slow, the operator may choose to install a smaller tubing string in order to continue lifting fluids. In this application, the SL tubing head can be installed between the TLC adapter and lower master valve. The SL tubing head features a retractable tag pin that allows for full opening bore for passage of back pressure valves and ensures positive tubing hanger location. The SL tubing hanger is landed through the tree, secured in place and may begin taking production. If so desired, the operator may also choose to utilize a crossover adapter in order to install a smaller bore tree over the installed SL tubing hanger.

10

Communication Slick Joint

The Communication Slick Joint was designed to allow operators to reciprocate tubing up to 24 feet for displacement during completion or de-completion of a well where hydraulic control lines are necessary for downhole control valves. An annular seal is maintained with the S wrap around tubing hanger, and an external shroud provides protection for the DHCV line during controlled reciprocation while under pressure.

Additional Features Include:

Separate suspension nut eliminates galling during installation and allows for easy makeup without requiring the rotation of the tree PolyPak seals separate DHCV ports, expediting installation and maximizing years of trouble-free service Metal seal between coupling and adapter provides leak-proof integrity External fitting allows testing of flow bore seal Modular two piece design allows for disassembly and seal access without disturbing tubing Shroud has an integral stop to prevent over extending during reciprocation Available for working pressures through 15,000 psi

NW-A and NW-B Connectors


Shutting in a production platform during installation of welded casing and diverter heads is costly, yet necessary for the safety of personnel and the environment. The only safe way to continue platform activities uninterrupted is to use an alternative connection method which requires no open flame. The NW series of diverter and casing heads provides a simple, safe and reliable solution to this problem.

Casing Heads
The NW-A casing head consists of a standard S-22 bowl with a manually locked slip mechanism. The seal between the conductor and the wellhead is achieved with injectable elastomers.

NW-A Casing Head

Diverter Heads
The NW-B diverter head consists of a full-open bore and friction pin locking mechanism which makes the head easily removable. The low pressure seal is formed by injectable elastomers.
