Scottish RCP to deliver well control systems to Singaporean oil client

Control and instrumentation company RCP, based in Aberdeen, Scotland, has been awarded a contract to supply and install integrated well control equipment for a Singaporean client.

The £300,000 (€386,600) contract will see RCP install and commission the systems on high-specification Chinese new build oil rigs, where they will streamline the well control process by combining multiple systems into one.

The integrated system consists of a main hydraulic console with all-electric remotely operated panels, which are used to operate and control dual choke valves, dual gate valves (utilising different working pressures), accurately monitor the liquid seal integrity of the mud gas separator, and also display three pump stroke counts.

The system’s design was based on RCP’s CE and ATEX certified choke control console design.

Under the contract, RCP will build and deliver the well control equipment in four stages over the next six months, the first of which will be delivered by mid-February 2016.
