Houston TX, February 21: The 18-15M K-BOS has successfully sheared a 9-1/2″ OD, 214ppf, MYS120 Drill Collar in front of a large audience including subsea BOP experts from six Operators, a key government regulator, DNV GL, and Transocean. This is the second successful shear test of a 9.5″ OD drill collar with the K-BOS and marks the final shear test of the 18-15M K-BOS technical qualification testing program to API 16A.

“The 9-1/2″ OD Drill Collar symbolizes the heaviest tubular that makes up a typical deepwater drill string. This successful test proves that the 18-15M K-BOS is truly a shear anything technical solution,” explained Steven Angstmann, CTO of Kinetic. “It is very exciting to have completed our technical qualification testing program for this product line with such a dramatic example of the K-BOS capabilities.”
