83 Pressure test all hydraulic operators to maximum working API RP 53 section 4 Major
pressure 3,000 psi. While pressure testing ram operators the 17.3.2.4
bonnets should be open to observe possible leakage.
84 After pressure testing, cycle the rams close and open, using a 4 Major
maximum of 200 psi to determine if the operating system still
functions smoothly. If the rams do not move smoothly, the
bearings of the MPL cylinders might be worn.
85 Insert a pipe in the BOP bore and perform a "lock-out test" of all API RP 53 section 6.3 4 Major
pipe ram MPL devices according to Hydril operators manual
specifications.

pressure tests.
94 Ensure that all safety rules are followed: isolation of the area, 3 Critical
P/A announcements, permit system, warning signs etc.
95 Verify the type of wellhead and rated working pressure. No 3 Major
hycar or relislient VX or AX rings are allowed during our
pressure tests.
96 Verify the test pressure does not exceed the drill pipe for yield, API RP 7G 3 Critical
collapse pressure and internal pressure.
97 Ensure that the BOP is tested with an "open" test pipe. No Shell DEN 18/90 3 Critical
cemented test joint or a welded blind flange are allowed at the
test drill pipe connections.
98 Pressure-test the rams to 250 psi for 5 minutes and full working API Spec 6A 3 Major
pressure for 10 minutes. Record the results on a pressure chart
recorder, apply the ModuSpec stamp and sign each sheet. No
leakages are allowed. The low pressure tests are extra critical if
wear at the top seals or the ram cavity is present.
99 The variable bore rams are to be tested with 5" drill pipe and API RP 53 section 17.5.5 3 Major
the smallest pipe available to test the variable at the bottom of
its range. I.e. a 3-1/2" to 7" variable bore rams should be tested
with a 3-1/2" and a 5" pipe.
100 The locking systems can be tested during the pressure tests, 3 Major
meaning after the ram is closed with the right closing pressures,
the locks need to be energized and the closing pressure bled
off during the pressure tests. (Either Cameron wedgelocks,
Shaffer poslocks, Hydril MPL or manual locking systems )
101 No drips from the bonnets are allowed, even if the chart is 3 Major
showing a straight line. The Cameron type U sometimes show
small drips from the bonnets at the start of the pressure test,
verify whether this drip eventually stops. (The drip could be
caused from trapped water outside the bonnets and not coming
from the bore )
102 Ring gaskets coated with resilient material such as rubber or API RP 53 section 3 Major
polytertafluorethylene should not be used. Due to limited 17.11.2
amount of deformation which a grove can make in a ring as it is
compressed during installation, it is not recommended to re-use
any loc
103 A PM system with equipment identified, tasks specified and API RP 53 section 3 Major

3 What type of element is installed? Nitrile or natural rubber? 3 Major
4 When serious milling has taken place the annular preventer 3 Major
must always be stripped and the piston and the housing
inspected, very often severe scoring is present on the annular
housing and piston. The visual inspection is necessary as the
pressure tests not always reveal this damage and problems
may occur during the next well.
5 Inspect for excessive wear and key seats; a. Bore of the upper 3 Major
housing; b. the piston bore; c. bore of the lower housing; d.
packing element.
6 Ensure that all hoses to the annular preventer have, at least 1" 3 Minor
ID with a working pressure of 3,000 psi.( 1-1/2" ID hoses are
preferred for the annular preventers.)
7 Verify that a surge bottle is or can be instaaled. Check the pre API RP 53 section 3 Minor
charge-pressure (required pre charge-pressure is approximate 17.5.11
450 psi). Ensure that the accumulator bottle is installed at a
close distance from the preventer
8 Inspect the top and bottom flange sealing surfaces, if the 3 Major

12 The closing time of the annular on drill pipe should be no longer API Spec 16D section 3 Major
than 30 seconds, if the bore size is less then 18- 3/4". (45 sec. 2.2.1.1
if the I.D. of the bore is equal to or is more then 18- 3/4".)
13 Does the annular packer relax to its normal bore size in less API Spec 16A 3 Major
then 30 minutes. (When in doubt perform a drift test with a full
bore running/test tool.)
14 Perform a drift test of annular element per API Spec. 16A. API Spec 16A 3 Major
15 Test the annular preventer to 250 psi for 5 minutes and to 70% API RP 53 section 3 Major
of the maximum working pressure for 10 minutes (conduct the 17.3.2.1+2
pressure test against the smallest string diameter expected to
be used in the well).
7.2.2 CAMERON TYPE D
16 Investigate what type of element is installed. Regular rubber or 4 Major
CAMLAST.
17 The packer and donut should be replaced if either of them EB No.527D 4 Major
shows: a.) vertical cracks or tears along the full height of the
sealing surface, b.) a large portion of the sealing surface has
been gouged away, c.) the packer has been exposed to H2S at
a temperature exceeding 200 degrees Fahrenheit (93 degrees
Celcius)
18 Ensure that the trash seal is installed and that it is still in good EB No.527D 4 Major
condition.
19 Ensure that the actuators are lubricated. Ensure that the EB No.527D 4 Minor
actuator bearings are not cracked.
20 Has a "D" shaped seal been installed in the annular preventer? EB No.699 4 Minor
An optional replacement for the standard lip seal is the D-seal
to be used in pitted, corroded and oversided seal groves.
21 As the minimum operating (closing) pressure of these API RP 53 section 4 Major
annular preventers is 1,500 psi, ensure that the annular 17.3.2.4; EB N0.522.D
pressure regulator is capable of regulating the pressure up to
