Parker Introduces IWOCS Open Water and Rig Package for Subsea Well Intervention
Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, is introducing its IWOCS (intervention and workover control system) open water and rig package at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, Texas.
Available from Parker’s Energy Products Division, the new IWOCS package can be used for well completions, subsea tree installations, workovers, and abandonment of obsolete wells.
The IWOCS package includes: IWOCS reel with hydraulic umbilical; hydraulic power unit (HPU); gang box/work van container; cargo basket; hydraulic guillotine and clamp weight; umbilical clamps; tote tank of fluid; and particle counting scope kit. The Energy Products Division also provides certified personnel to operate the system offshore.
Parker’s IWOCS umbilicals are designed to safely provide direct hydraulic control to the tree-running tool (TRT) and other subsea tree functions. The umbilical is universally adaptable to all third-party connections where hydraulic power is needed. It contains 20 lines with a maximum working pressure of 12,500psi.
The hose within the umbilical is Parker methanol-washed aramid fiber hose. The HPU system is a compact 2-piece design, has flushing capabilities and is rated for 15,000 psi maximum working pressure. It is compatible with water-glycol-based fluids for any control system and is equipped with a state-of-the-art emergency shutdown system (ESD).
