New 20,000 psi Coupler Takes Offshore Drilling Operations Deeper

New 20,000 psi Coupler Takes Offshore Drilling Operations Deeper - Offshore Drilling - Parker Hannifin Quick Coupling DivisionWithstanding the high pressures of deepwater reservoirs has been a challenge for offshore drilling operations limited by the capabilities of their equipment.

Going after deep reservoirs with higher internal pressures requires components that can operate reliably at higher-pressure levels. If a single component can’t handle the pressure, then the entire system is compromised. Until now, reliable component performance at extreme depths has been an issue for drillers, Christmas tree manufactures, and chemical injection companies. 

A new offering from Parker’s Quick Coupling Division (QCD) could be the innovation that helps operators reach more reservoirs than ever before.

 

Metal sealed coupler unique to the marketplace

Parker's Quick Coupling Division is introducing the new 20,000 psi Metal Sealed Coupler.

Unique to the marketplace, the coupler has a working pressure of 20,000 psi which allows for reliable connections and disconnections while working in higher-pressure formations. Features and benefits include:

  • One of the first subsea couplers with a working pressure of 20,000 psi.

  • Designed for high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) environments. 

  • Allows operators to reach more reservoirs than ever before.

  • Ideal for connecting multiple pieces of equipment in deep water applications.

The 20,000 psi Metal Sealed Coupler is one of the first couplers that can be used on equipment servicing higher-pressure reservoirs. This is ideal for connecting multiple pieces of equipment in the offshore industry, including Christmas tree manufacturing, oil production, and chemical injection.

To create reliable connections, the coupler combines two types of seals, making it ideal for harsh HPHT environments at extreme depths:

  • Seals designed for connection under full-system pressure, and

  • Seals designed with Parker patented metal sealing technology for increased wear and high-temperature resistance.
