Complex environment that pushes all boundaries
Enhance prospect definition, well construction, and production.
Featuring an industry-first three-POD design, the Mark IV control pod improves operational availability of the drilling system through redundancy and improves reliability through simplified POD design.
Conventional subsea BOP control systems use a two-POD design, providing a single spare if the primary control POD becomes unavailable. The Mark IV-HA control system system’s third POD provides additional redundancy, which eliminates the need to pull the stack if one POD fails.
