SSMC Wellhead System The SSMC is available in a range of nominal sizes from 7-1/16” through 18-3/4” and in working pressures up to 10. The design and manufacture meets API 6A standards and systems can be supplied to meet the complete material class. temperature rating and PSL level requirements of this specification.

Hundreds of MEC seals have been installed in platform and subsea wellhead applications. That is why the Cameron SSMC wellhead system features a choice of elastomeric seals on seal assemblies. Seals available for the SSMC include metal-to-metal seals in primary sealing applications. LS Seal The LS seal is a cost-effective. elastomer interference seal used as an annulus seal. and the patented radial squeeze sealing method to ensure wellhead dependability. The seal assembly is run on a threaded running tool that retains the snapring until landed. It uses continuous 316 stainless steel garter springs molded into the two exposed corners of the seal to prevent extrusion. The top face of the seal assembly serves as a landing shoulder for the next stage hanger. more robust version of the S seal and can tolerate surface imperfections such as those caused by casing centralizers and larger running clearances. The seals are tested via a test port in the housing prior to retrieving the running tool. 4 The SSMC wellhead offers a selection in sealing technology which increases versatility and ensures that the wellhead is adaptable for any production environment. An overpull ensures the correct engagement of the seal assembly. Backing off the running tool releases the snapring which is naturally biased to spring into the lock groove in the housing. Metal seals meet the requirements of API 6FB fire specifications. All elastomer seals are available in premium elastomer materials developed by Cameron Elastomer Technology specifically for oilfield applications.S e a l i n g Te c h n o l o g y The ability of a wellhead to withstand pressure is determined in great part by the integrity of its sealing system. S Seal The S seal is a one-piece elastomer interference-type seal used as either an annulus seal or tubing hanger neck seal. The MEC seals combine metal end-caps. In addition. Cameron-exclusive Metal End-Cap (MEC) seal. and metal-to-metal seals on tubing hanger necks. the seals must be designed to match the service application in which they are used. Seals available for the SSMC seal assembly include LS elastomer seals and the popular. The LS seal is a larger. premium elastomer material. extended service life and ease of operation.

MEC seals can tolerate surface imperfections such as those caused by casing centralizers. CF Gasket The CF gasket is used in conjunction with the Cameron FastLock and FlangeLock connectors (see page 6) to form a metal-to-metal seal between wellhead connections.Metal-End-Cap (MEC) Seal MEC seals are radially squeezed. fieldproven elastomeric interface seal used as an annulus seal to seal on un-machined casing in emergency situations. Metal shells provide a zero gap extrusion barrier that eliminates exposing the elastomer material to the corrosive well bore environment.

It uses square section rings in the corners to prevent extrusion. Its design reduces pressure end-loads and allows lower make-up torque. Straight Radial Lip (SRL) Seal The SRL seal is a straight bore sealing. T Seal The T seal is a cost-effective.

FastLock™ Connector The FastLock connector is designed as an efficient replacement for flanged connections on surface wellheads. Its low torque allows for fast make-up and saves rig time. FastClamp™ Connector The FastClamp connector fits standard clamp hub profiles using conventional API ring gaskets. Low make-up torque increases ease of installation. Fast Make-Up Connections The SSMC wellhead incorporates two Cameron-exclusive fast make-up methods to connect the Christmas tree to the compact housing.E m e r g e n c y E q u i p m e n t a n d To p C o n n e c t i o n s Emergency Equipment The SSMC wellhead includes a full range of casing slip-based emergency options. the FastLock and FlangeLock Connectors. should the casing “stick” during installation. It can be bolted directly onto FastLock connector hubs. FastClamp sections are pre-installed on the hub via the guide rods to eliminate safety concerns in handling the sections during installation. FastLock connectors would be installed on land and platform BOP stacks taking full advantage of the installation time savings offered by this unique design. more cost-effective overall connection and provides maximum flexibility for drilling and workover operations.
