BOP Shear Ram Performance Test Protocol
|Publication Date:||1 July 2018|
This document outlines the standardized test protocol, including data and reporting requirements, for performing sealing and nonsealing blowout preventer (BOP) shear ram performance tests. This protocol determines the parameters that can support field system performance and confidence in successful shearing and sealing.
This document is not intended to be used for qualifying BOP shear rams or as a factory acceptance test (FAT) procedure.
Qualification and FAT of BOP shear rams is per API 16A.
