Oil and gas surface control equipment is vital for the safety of the personnel working on the rig, as well as preserving the integrity of the well.
The old way of making sure you don’t exceed the maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) of your equipment is to over-engineer the pressure control equipment, install manual pressure relief valves and rely on the reaction time of someone on the control equipment.
While attending the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Expo (ATCE) Mark and Patrick met with Jason Pitman of SAFOCO whose products are allowing pressure control equipment to operate a lot closer to its MAWP, and respond to an over pressurization in less time than it takes to blink an eye.

Here are all of the upcoming events we will be attending:
- IADC Human Factors Conference & Exhibition: (October 17 – 18) Recent events have triggered a growing awareness of the human contribution to catastrophic and process safety events. As other industries have proven, if the drilling industry can make a concerted effort to understand human factors and integrate these concepts into training and operations, significant value can be gained in terms of safety performance. The IADC Human Factors Conference & Exhibition will seek to examine the innovations that are shaping the future of drilling as it strives to merge rapidly advancing technologies with an understanding of human nature and form.
- SPC ATCE Conference in San Antonio: (October 9 – 11) ATCE is SPE’s annual meeting of members and features groundbreaking papers and special technical events designed to accelerate the application of innovations in every technical discipline. Attendees come from around the world to ATCE to keep up with the latest technologies, industry best practices, and new product launches.
