MWCC CAPPING STACK DEMONSTRATION - JULY AND AUGUST 2012

PHOTO

At the request of the Department of the Interior and BSEE, MWCC demonstrated the capabilities of its containment system, including a physical deployment of its capping stack. Shell Oil Company partnered with MWCC to perform the demonstration. (Full Video)

PHOTO

When the capping stack demonstration in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico was initiated by BSEE, MWCC assembled its response team in the Emergency Response Center where details of the demonstration were shared. The capping stack was then transported from the ASCO facility to Greensport.

PHOTO

Upon arrival at Greensport, the capping stack underwent pre-deployment testing. The secondary containment cap was installed and multiple barrier pressure tests were performed.

PHOTO

The "Big John" crane lifted the capping stack and moved it down the ship channel where it was lowered onto the LANEY CHOUEST. Offshore deployment of the capping stack was simulated and the capping stack was sea fastened onto the shipping stand for departure.

PHOTO

The MWCC capping stack was lowered from the LANEY CHOUEST into the water using the A-frame. A heave compensated landing system was used to lower the capping stack on a wire off of the back of the vessel onto the parking pile.

PHOTO

The capping stack was latched on the pile in approximately 6,900 feet of water and the process to shut in the simulated well began. Pressure testing was performed and confirmed the capping stack's ability to control a well.

PHOTO

Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) prepared the capping stack for retrieval. A spreader bar was used to lift the capping stack back onto the LANEY CHOUEST for departure to Greensport.

PHOTO

The capping stack arrived at Greensport where it was transported by the "Big John" crane back to land where final preparations were completed to return the capping stack to ASCO where it will be stored and maintained in a ready state should it ever be needed.
