Diverter System
ADS Diverter System

D eep well programs on the Arabian peninsula present unique

challenges during the initial phase of drilling operations.
Shallow gas pockets may be encountered that require managed
well bore control that is not currently available on existing land rigs.
Utilizing feedback from the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi
Aramco), Dril-Quip, Inc. has developed the Arabian Diverter
System (ADS) to address these challenges.
The ADS (patent pending) is a portable diverter installed on the
conductor and establishes a pressure-tight seal to enable controlled
diversion of any gas pockets that might be encountered. This divert-
er system integrates three elements – the diverter housing, packing
elements and an overshot spool-type connector – into a unitized
protection device. The ADS incorporates safe, reliable field-proven
technology and performance features into a 500-psi-rated working
pressure design.
Elastomer packers in the diverter close and seal around pipe
suspended through the rig’s rotary table, isolating the rig floor from
fluids and gases flowing from the well bore. Large outlets located
below the packers control and divert the flow to a designated area.
Hydraulic controls for the diverter system are incorporated into the
rig’s BOP control system. Valves with hydraulic actuators are
mounted on each of the diverter outlet lines to control the move-
ment of fluids and gases through the system.
The handling and test tools provided facilitate testing, operation
and maintenance of the system.

• Large-bore diverter accommodates 36" drift
• A range of split insert packers provides well bore
protection during both drilling and casing operations
• Split packer design also facilitates running selected
packer elements through a 37-1/2" rotary table
• Split insert packer design simplifies installation via
weight-set, lock-ring style auto-locking components;
no hydraulics required
• Overshot radial bolt connector features quick, easy
make-up using standard impact wrenches
• Overshot connector packer seal is hydraulically energized
for reliable control of the well bore fluids
• Engineered, designed and operated in accordance with
applicable API industry standards
• Adaptable to most land drilling rigs
• Complete ADS diverter and valve system available
from single source (Dril-Quip)

Diverter Packer Elements

Main Packer
The Main Packer is housed in the main body of the diverter, and
consists of a tubular elastomer seal with metal rings molded on
each end. The one-piece packer is retained in the main body of
the diverter by the packer lockdown, retaining and load ring.
The Main Packer functions the insert packers when the diverter
is closed. Hydraulic pressure deflects the packer toward the bore,
which in turn deflects each of the insert packers installed. The
Main Packer is only removed during maintenance operations.
10" Split Insert Packer
Solid Packers and Split Insert Packers
The Solid and Split Insert Packers land in the main body of
the diverter and are designed to close and seal around various
pipe sizes. The packers consist of a tubular elastomer seal with
metal rings molded on each end. The Split Insert Packers are
split in half so that they can be installed or retrieved while
pipe is suspended through the rotary table. A spring-loaded
lockdown ring is bolted to the top of the packer and retains it in
the previously installed larger packer. Tapped holes in the top
of the lockdown ring permit the swivel insert retrieving rods
to release the lockdown ring and recover the packer assembly
when necessary. Each Split Insert Packer has two alignment slots
located at the top of the packer to orient the packer assembly
such that the split between the two halves is offset 90° from the 18" Split Insert Packer
split between the two halves of the previous size. All packers are
rated to 500 psi.
10" Split Insert Packer
The 10" Split Insert Packer incorporates J-slots on the ID to
interface with the Packer Handling Tool. The packer is operated
with 925 psi and has a minimum closing diameter of 4-1/2".
18" Split Insert Packer
The 18" Split Insert Packer lands in the 27-1/2" Solid Packer
and is normally run with the 10" Split Insert Packer. The packer
is operated with 850 psi and has a minimum closing diameter 27-1/2" Split Insert Packer
of 9-5/8".
27-1/2" Split Packer
The 27-1/2" Split Insert Packer lands in the main body of the
diverter. It is operated with 750 psi and has a minimum closing
diameter of 26".
32-1/2" Solid Insert Packer
The 32-1/2" Solid Insert Packer lands in the main body of the
diverter housing. It is operated with 750 psi and has a minimum
closing diameter of 28".
32-1/2" Solid Insert Packer
