Got Gas..?!

Got Gas..?!

Another industry first from RMSpumptools - developing a V0 Rated 7-5/8” POD with 4-1/2” Handling Joint and V0 Single Mandrel Penetrator in record time for a 7-5/8” UK North Sea application. This 100% Gas Tight POD prevents gas migration into the main annulus and has much greater tensile and compression strength properties than the standard 3-1/2” systems currently in the market.

The POD went through rigorous temperature and load testing cycles with internal and external pressure reversals at our unique Manufacturing Site in the UK and achieved 6500psi and Tensile/Compression rating of 259,000lbs.

Several sizes of this VO Rated POD have now been developed – and the main benefit… it negates the need for a V0 rated production packer, therefore saving significant costs.
