Why Certification to API Standard 53 is so valuable!

Task Products offers equipment that comply well control requirements as stated in the latest API standard 53 where most of the existing equipment do not comply.

The American Petroleum Institute issued Standard 53 in November 2012. The purpose of this standard is to provide requirements on the installation and testing of blowout prevention equipment systems on land and marine drilling rigs (barge, platform, bottom-supported, and floating). Blowout preventer equipment systems are comprised of a combination of various components.

The following components are required for operation under varying rig and well conditions:
a) blowout preventers (BOPs);

b) choke and kill lines;

c) choke manifolds;

d) control systems;

e) auxiliary equipment such Mud Gas Separator.

Publication at api.org states that HPHT and deepwater well standards follow the November publication of a related document, API Standard 53, Blowout Prevention Equipment Systems for Drilling Wells. This document updated and strengthened an existing standard for blowout preventers with a focus on standardizing operating requirements and prioritizing preventive maintenance, inspections and testing.

Task Products offers equipment that comply well control requirements as stated in the latest API standard 53 where most of the existing equipment do not comply.
