Just don't let Pete see how good you are with bending SS tubing...

If it pays the same and gets me off the water, I'll demonstrate some tube bending all day long...

My responsibilities are to maintain and test the BOP's, (Blow Out Preventers), the Marine Riser, (the pipe that allows us to run the BOP's down to the sea floor and returns mud to the rig) maintain the Drill String Compensator ( the device that hangs from the crown of the derrick and allows the drill bit to sit smoothly on the bottom of the hole without bouncing as the rig moves and heaves, the diverter, which allows us to redirect and control or "divert" any well bore materials coming out of the hole... The BOP's are roughly 50 ft tall, and weigh in around 400,000 lbs... We pick it up and move it around on the rig as needed to tear it apart and rebuild it... Every EOW... In addition to that, we are responsible for a thousand other things... We are responsible for the hydraulic hoses and a lot of the hydraulics on the rig... The biggest part of this is the Koomey Unit, which controls all of the hydraulic functions on the BOP's and the diverter system... There are around 60 panel valves, POD valves, POD hoses, mixing units, etc... In domestic locations on a small rig like this, there is typically only one Subsea hand on the rig at any given time... In international locations, there are usually two of us... A resident hand (me) and a trainee that works nights...

Remind me when I get home and I'll show you a video of the drill string compensator... It's pretty amazing to see how big it is... The top drive and compensatorlook like a school bus going up and down.... Everything on the rig is big, heavy and hard... Except us... and we have to remember that all the time,.....
Sorry to get off topic, but you know me. This stuff really intrigues me

how bout SSE 4 2SS <<, seven characters...

LOL, I knew if we ever got on the subject it would... It's the engineering side of you... which is most of you... most any subject is open for discussion in here as well... Though we may have to use our available local experts for some of the subject content accuracies... BRUCEMIKERUSSKYLEJUSTINOTHERMIKEDOUGGLEN etc....

Here a trivia question... Drill bit is on the drill pipe (string)... drill pipe (string) spins to the right and with weight applied downward... the drill bit goes down...

Now, I want to do directional hole... I want to go a specific direction with that hole... say.... >>>> way....

How is this accomplished... Think outside the box...


Or... The well head is spudded in.... run into the sea floor... then they drill out the 20 inch section, and run 20 inch casing... Once that is done, they cement it... basically making the well head and casing one with the earth... So... The rig floats... It heaves, it rolls, etc...

We run the BOP stack to the sea floor and latch it up to the wellhead, on marine riser... which is 5/8 to 3/4 inch wall pipe 21 1/4 ID, and is in 50 foot joints... So... we have a solid wellhead, a stack latched up to it, and essentially a solid line from the rig to the seafloor... What allows the rig to move up and down relative the seafloor without tearing the stack off the wellhead... Bear in mind the riser can not flex as this would cause the aforementioned drill string to rub against it, keyslotting it, and eventually to rub through it causing a loss of control of the well formation pressures..

This is all strictly for fun... and unlike Pete, there will be no test... and it's not any kind of rocket science stuff as proven by the fact that I can do it...

Just dont over think it...as I tell my trainees all the time...
