EFC BOP Controls delivers a robust system with a central architecture on a fibre optic network.

EFC Group design & manufacture BOP Controls Systems for both surface & subsea stacks. BOP Control projects can both update & convert control systems so they can be readily supported in the future as well as becoming API 16D compliant. Surface BOP Control systems can be API 16D monogrammed.

The BOP Control System is used to control the Blowout Preventer to seal, control and monitor the well. The EFC Group BOP Control System is critical to well control ensuring the safety of crew, rig, well integrity and the environment

The BOP control system provides full functionality from two or more locations, typically local hydraulic control, drillers electric & toolpushers electric remote panel. A solenoid valve enclosure is included to provide an interface from the electric signals from the remote panel and provide pneumatic or piloted hydraulic signals to the BOP control actuators. An HPU can be part of system supply or it can be limited only to hydraulic control skid.

Systems can include all, or some of these system modules:

  • Remote electric control panel for Driller, Toolpusher, Lifeboat Station
  • PLC replacement
  • Solenoid pressure switch & transmitter replacement
  • Local hydraulic controls interface
  • Hydraulic power unit (HPU)
  • BOP Alarm status indication for mounting at HPU
  • Newbuild BOP Control Systems can include remote data signal hand-off
Redundancy Remove any single point failure risk
Fibre Optic Network Reduces installation cost & provides ‘self-healing’ capability
Sensor type Aids preventative maintenance with self test & diagnostic reporting
Electric Panels Upgrades legacy pneumatic controls
User Interface Colour BOP mimic and 4” analogue gauges
Safe Operation Two hand operation plus alarmed covers for critical functions
Warranty 2 years, extendable to 5 years with annual service visits
