Houston TX: The 18-15M K-BOS (Model number KB18B501) has received certification from DNV-GL that it complies with DNVGL-OS-E101, January 2018 edition and by reference, API 16A (PR2), API 6X and NACE MR-0175. The certification is the result of having completed a comprehensive technology qualification program per DNVGL-RP-A203, including successful shear tests of specimens from 0.25″ wireline, various drill pipe, landing strings slip proof sections, heavy high pressure casing (up to 18″ OD, up to 136ppf, up to Q125), landing string tool joints and a 9.5″ OD drill collar (214ppf) including a subsea shear test in the Gulf of Mexico as well as more than 5 years of accelerated lifecycle testing and temperature qualification for a 0-300-350F (BFF) sealing material temperature rating per API 16A. Wellbore fluid wetted materials are rated for sour (H2S) service.
