  • Patent number: 10920887
    Abstract: A blowout preventer (BOP) and a seal anti-extrusion apparatus is provided for well control about a tubular such as a polish rod. Each of opposing ram blocks support a semi-circular primary seal and at least one downstream backup ring. An extrusion gap is formed between the ram block and the rod. The backup ring has profile that is axially compressible by the primary seal when activated, causing an inner diameter diminish, and closing the extrusion gap for improved sealing integrity of the primary seal.

  • Patent number: 10900313
    Abstract: Apparatus and methodologies are provided for modifying the wellhead structure of a production well to seal the production well before subterranean fracturing operations. The apparatus includes an enclosure tubular and adapter 5 for sealingly engaging the polish rod extending from the wellhead structure, while maintaining the entire rod string in tension in a manner to ensure that the string and its connection with the downhole pump are not compromised. More specifically, the present preparations involve retaining the rod string in tension while removing at least the stuffing box from the wellhead structure, and 10 temporarily installing the enclosure tubular and adapter to seal the wellhead, preventing wellbore blowouts.
