Cameron subsea wellheads contain technology found nowhere else and reflect the depth of our pressure control experience. lower costs and better sealing in shallow or deep water drilling operations.

saving a round trip for each test. The result is a cost-effective system that can be adapted to virtually any subsea job. MOSAIC systems are modular at the component level. Rated up to 15. and it is adaptable to casing programs with five or six strings. The MOSAIC system is more easily expanded as field development needs evolve. the STM is shown in one of our two 25 ft deep. on single wells. Versions of the STM are available for shallow or deep water. Depending on your requirements. mandrel or Cameron’s new deepwater. High-pressure 18-3/4” housing. passive design allows the 13-3/8" casing hanger to be reciprocated inside the 18-3/4" housing without the possibility of inadvertent setting. They’re the perfect fit for today’s subsea economics. STM wellhead undergoes seal development testing at Cameron’s new. The high-pressure housing will accommodate an optional 16" casing hanger and seal assembly. In the photo at right. you gain simplified installation procedures. Cameron is offering the DWHC profile to the petroleum industry without charge.

This locks the high-pressure. preloaded lockdown. The seal is radially energized and requires less energy to set than ordinary seals. The metal seals on the OD and ID always retain pressure before the elastomer seal. Well or test pressure compresses the elastomer.Advanced lockdown and sealing technology A closer look at Cameron engineering reveals advanced but practical technology that works in the real world. A remarkable history of pressure-control experience has been pre-engineered into our subsea wellheads. chlorides. The inability to effectively seal pressures from below is a weakness of tapered-bowl seal designs offered by some wellhead manufacturers. bending and axial loads are transferred from the BOP stack to the conductor. The Cameron parallel bore design allows for slight vertical movement of the seal without affecting seal integrity.000 psi. Field proven 18-3/4" housing to the 30" conductor with twelve vertical pre-load segments. the MEC seal assembly is used in the 10. The PBM seal assembly and highpressure housing design provides for two additional contingency seals: an optional elastomer seal and a metal seal in hundreds of wells. This pre-loaded lockdown offers superior fatigue resistance. the seal assembly was moved as much as 1/4" while maintaining full test pressure of 15. the proprietary CAMLAST™ elastomer seal element is resistant to H2S. diesel fluid and oil or water-based amine corrosion inhibitors. with excursions to 400˚F (204˚C). It is also ideal for deepwater applications. Stainless steel caps on the upper and lower surfaces of the elastomer prevent extrusion. which runs the casing hanger and seal assembly in one trip. Because the PBM seal is designed for a parallel-bore sealing surface. in a recessed bore. An outwardly biased. pre-loaded lockdown is engineered for high-temperature applications where thermal expansion is a critical factor. The Metal-End Cap seal will often work when ordinary seals won’t because the seal is highly tolerant of sealing surface damage. and provides constant contact pressure on inner and outer sealing surfaces. it provides equal seal protection from pressures above or below. It is radially engaged.

The receptacle can be welded to the bottom of the 18-3/4" high-pressure housing extension or anywhere in the 20" string so height is not added to the wellhead. eliminating the possibility of a false test. It has a compact design.Single Trip Compact Subsea Wellhead System The totally weight-set and compact STC wellhead is a popular choice for lower 16" Seal Assembly with hub or mandrel BOP and Christmas tree connection profiles. The STC wellhead uses Cameron’s proprietary Metal-End Cap seals with CAMLAST elastomer. Metal-End Cap elastomer seals Interchangeable seal assemblies on each casing hanger Optional 16” casing hanger available for six-string programs Passively activated. An optional 16" hanger can be used in six-string casing programs. Attractive pricing and rig-time savings during installation make it the most cost-effective wellhead in its operating range.

This allows the seal to be set before stack pressure is applied. 6 . Unlike ordinary systems. the CHSART tool sets the seal assembly by pressurizing down the drill pipe. which allows the seal to be set before stack pressure is applied. The tool is then used to hydraulically set the casing hanger seal assembly in a unique way. Guide posts are permitted to stroke approximately six inches to allow BOP orientation prior to loading the post.Guidebases and running tools The benefits of modularity are preengineered into Cameron’s remotely retrievable/reinstallable guidebase (RRGB). which set the seals by pressurizing the BOP stack to pump the seal down. Cameron STM/STC Running Tool Package and ancillary equipment The Cameron STM and STC Running Tool Package includes the tools required to run a five-string STM or STC system. Guideline or guidelineless versions of the RRGB are available. Cameron offers a complete line of special-purpose tools: • Jetting tool • Boll weevil test tool with redundant seals • Weight-set BOP tester • One-trip Seal Assembly Retrieval Tool (SART) • Temporary abandonment (TA) caps • Emergency drill pipe hang-off tool • Full-bore casing hanger running tools • Hydraulic 30" running and tieback tool • Casing hanger cleanout tool • 30"/36" housing drill-ahead tool • 18-3/4" housing retrieval tool • Shallow water flow shutoff systems • Tieback system • CAMSMART™ downhole measurement tool SD016699 The STM spring-loaded locking mechanism automatically locks the 30” conductor housing to the guidebase. • Casing Hanger Seal Assembly Running Tool (CHSART) to install casing hangers and seals and perform seal tests. Any number of wells can be accommodated through multiples of the guidebases. pre-tested template. After the seal is fully set and in position. Multi-well units allow wellbores to be spaced as closely as 7-1/2 ft on center. The CHSART tool is a perfect example. • 18-3/4" housing and BOP test tool. In the STM system. SD016798 SD016799 SD016800 Casing hanger seal assembly is set by pressuring down the drill pipe. CHSART (Casing Hanger Seal Assembly Running Tool) Cameron’s advanced wellhead technology includes running tools that contribute to system cost savings and ease of use. it allows installation of casing hangers and PBM seal assemblies in one trip. Ancillary equipment Cameron’s STM/STC Running Tool Packages are normally all that’s required to run fivestring systems under most conditions. the seal is tested using the CHSART tool with stack pressure. • 30" housing running tool. All these tools are simple to make up and all release with right-hand rotation. • Wear bushing running/retrieving tool. In addition. • Retrievable/reinstallable guidebase running tool. This reduces the risk of damage when landing the BOP stack. Multiple guidebases can be combined into a single.
