Wild Well Control, Inc. has agreed a new contract with Fugro for the provision of blowout preventer (BOP) intervention skids and test units for inclusion in its subsea response kit. As part of the WellCONTAINED™ subsea capping stack programme, the new 450/150 Mark 3 BOP intervention skids from Fugro are an advancement in both pumping capability and water depth rating and will replace the existing equipment in inventory.

Doug Graham, Fugro’s ROV services and tooling global director, explained that Fugro is delighted to support Wild Well by providing the latest generation Fugro BOP Technology. This technology offers multiple benefits to Wild Well, such as full skid testing without the requirement of an remotely operated vehicle (ROV), the ability to interface to most workclass ROV systems and a bespoke designed self-contained storage and maintenance transport container. “We are very pleased that Wild Well is incorporating Fugro’s new Mark 3 BOP skid into its unique WellCONTAINED inventory,” he said. “Deployments of the skid system to date have included full functional testing on a Fugro ROV at 3800 m water depth. The BOP system is depth rated to 4000 m.”

Chris LeCompte, Wild Well’s general manager of WellCONTAINED, stated: “This new equipment supports our initiative to provide a comprehensive subsea capping and containment program for operators worldwide. We are excited that this field proven equipment enhances our kit while also supporting the increased 3800-m depth rating of our capping stack equipment.”
