HWCG Well Containment Unit

The HWCG is a consortium of 15 deep water operators in the Gulf of Mexico who have come together with the common goal of expanding capabilities to quickly and comprehensively respond to a subsea spill to protect employees, communities and the environment.  The HWCG hired a well testing expert PTS to provide a containment unit capable of handling 15000 bbl/day and 100MMSFCD of production.  PTS then acquired the services of F&C Engineers to develop the PIDs and full detail design. The entire work was conducted in 2.5 months and the system is completely modularized so it can be shipped and installed in a variety of floating drilling vessels.  NOTE: 3D models and pictures of the preassembled facility were developed to ensure successful fitment prior to deployment.
