ScanTech Offshore’s safety bails improve safety in semi-submersibles and drill ships

ScanTech Offshore can now provide the well test industry with Safety Bails, an innovative ‘controlled failure’ system that improves the safety of semi-submersibles and drill ships to comply with ISO 13628-7 standards. This overcomes the long-standing challenge of operating floating drilling rigs safely during completion, well testing, well intervention and work-over operations.

Safety Bails mean that tension failure is no longer a serious threat. A shear pin is built into the system that ensures controlled shearing occurs when a predetermined load is reached. This reduces the potentially catastrophic risk for assets, hydrocarbon release and personnel resulting from compensator lock up, which can cause excessive tension to the landing string or C/WOR (Completion/Work Over Riser), leading to the damage of derricks and rigs.
