5-Surface Well Control Equipment Policy & Procedures

Diverter Policy

Mandatory when:
offshore and no BOP nippled up
onshore if shallow gas expected

Minimum WP:
200 psi (land rigs)
300 psi (offshore, barge)

Minimum line diameter:


10 offshore ( 2 lines)
6 land ( 1 line OK)

Flow Line

Closing times:
20 or less, 30 seconds or less
> 20, 45 seconds or less

Diverter
To Trip
Diverter
Tank Line Valve

Diverter Line

Full-Opening Valves
(automatically opens when
diverter closes). Gate valves
ok. Ball valves are best. No
guillotine valves allowed.
6-Surface Well Control Equipment Policy & Procedures

Diverters

Used while drilling top hole

Diverts flow from rig rather


than shut-in

Platform, Land and Floating


drilling applications

Normally one closing chamber

WP 500 psi 29-1/2 bore

Well bore assisted

Operated from Accumulator


using regulated 1500 psi

ExxonMobil BOP Selection

Always follow OIMS Policy

Follow Regulatory Requirements

Always comply with local laws/regulations

Follow the EM BOP WC Equipment Manual

Follow API Practices where OIMS silent

Use API Specifications where possible

Use sound engineering & judgement when seeking


exceptions

Additional General Musts

Manual gate & HCV valve on choke line


Place HCV on the outside. Change to
Standards and Operational Practices
Keep drill pipe safety valve (stabbing valve)
on rig floor; one for each pipe size
Keep cross over from casing to drill pipe on
rig floor when running casing
When in doubt, check BOPE manual
