Deploying K-BOS on the Deepwater Invictus

Transocean’s Deepwater Invictus has successfully tested K-BOS (Kinetic Blowout Stopper), shearing a 6-5/8” V-150 50 lbs/ft drill pipe at a depth of 2,400 feet. During the field test, the tool performed exactly as designed. This wraps up a four-month operational deployment of K-BOS in a subsea BOP stack. “K-BOS has certainly proven its reliability and is the way of the future for safe operations,” said Sam Covington, Manager of Well Control Equipment, Gulf of Mexico, at Transocean.
