  • Patent number: 9234401
    Abstract: A blowout preventer comprises a pair of ram assemblies which are mounted on diametrically opposite sides of a BOP housing. A cylinder-ram is slidably received within each ram assembly and includes a cylindrical cavity. A back plate couples with the outer end of the cylinder-ram and a piston head is positioned in the cavity, forming first and second piston chambers. Hydraulic pressure in the first and second piston chambers forces the cylinder ram from an open position to a closed position, thereby sealing the BOP bore.

  • Patent number: 5083582
    Abstract: A valve arrangement having an insert assembly (11) receivable in a receptacle (10). The insert assembly includes valve elements for controlling fluid flow through the valve. These include a gate (40) and chamber valve seat members (52, 53). The insert is constructed so that it can be removed from and located in the receptacle. When located in the receptacle and in operation the gate is urged against one of the seat members so that a seal is formed between the seat and gate and between the seat and receptacle body. The gate (40) can be an expandable gate.

  • Patent number: 4550782
    Abstract: In well installations subjected to high internal fluid pressures, hangers for long casing strings are supported independently in the upright bore of a wellhead body or other support member without requiring that the hangers be stacked one atop another or that the bore diameter be stepped to provide an upwardly exposed shoulder for each hanger. All hangers save the lowermost hanger are supported by an annular support member engaged in a groove in the wellhead body, with no load being transferred from an upper hanger to a lower hanger.
