POS-GRIP Exploration Wellhead Systems

Well integrity and safety is never more important than when drilling exploration wells. Plexus has pioneered the use of through BOP wellhead systems for jack-up exploration drilling. Plexus also has a range of adjustable wellheads which allow all drilling and well test activities to be completed without lifting the BOP– Our aim for both equipment and process is always “Safety by Design”.

A welcome benefit from the use of a through BOP design philosophy is time and cost savings. Our wellhead system saves a BOP lift for every casing string installed compared to conventional systems. This saves one to four days down time per well, generating significant cost reduction. The systems are available from existing stock on a rental basis, reducing lead time and therefore saving capital cost.

  • Through the BOP system
  • Hanger positions are adjustable for ease of use with or without mudline suspension
  • High hanger capacity, lockdown and torsional resistance
  • BOP testing performed without pulling wear bushings
  • High quality metal to metal annular seals
  • Available up to 20,000 psi

Plexus has a team dedicated to supporting exploration drilling campaigns, and has supported more than 300 wells worldwide. Excellent programs for training and competency assessment, combined with the skill and experience of our team contribute to the smooth running of well planning, installation, operation and abandonment.
