GE Oil & Gas has received two Spotlight on New Technology awards from the 2013 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) for two new products that address the challenges of deepwater drilling. The awards showcase the latest and most advanced hardware and software technologies that are leading the offshore exploration and drilling industry into the future.

The two GE products honored are:

RamTel Plus System and ROV Subsea Display Panel. Blowout preventers (BOP) are critical components to drilling operation safety and are used on all wells, both on and offshore. GE’s RamTel Plus System and Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) Display provide the industry with real-time, electronic measurements of the BOP’s ram position and the pressure required to actuate the blades and/or sealing elements. This proven technology provides new data on the operational performance of the BOP that can be used in trending and prognostics in a way that mechanical systems cannot provide.

Deepwater BOP Blind Shear Ram. GE Oil & Gas has developed next-generation technology for shearing and sealing wellbore tubulars (casings and pipes). The patent-pending 5K Blind Shear Ram is designed for use in GE’s ram BOPs for offshore drilling and has demonstrated the capability to shear 6-5/8 inch S-135 drill pipe tool joints while achieving a wellbore seal at 15,000 psi pressure differential. The technology was developed by GE to address an industry need to shear and seal today’s large diameter, advanced metallurgy (strength, thickness and ductility) drilling tubulars.

In total, OTC presented 15 Spotlight on New Technology awards to exhibitors at this year’s show. GE Oil & Gas was one of only two companies to receive two awards.
