Why Certification to API Standard 53 is so valuable!

Task Products offers equipment that complies with well control requirements as stated in the latest API standard 53, where most existing equipment does not currently 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/ or marine drilling rigs (barge, platform, bottom-supported, and floating). Blowout preventer equipment systems are comprised of a combination of various components.

Task Products offers equipment that complies with well control requirements, as stated in the latest API standard 53 where most existing equipment does not currently comply.

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 as 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 standardising operating requirements and prioritising preventive maintenance, inspections and testing.

Task Products offers equipment that comply with well control requirements as stated in the latest API standard 53, where most of the existing equipment in use does not currently comply. These products include Choke Manifold, Mud Gas Separator and other work products. Recently Task Products has achieved certification and design approval for Mud Gas Separator to API Standard 53.
