Ram BOP: Market Overview
Ram BOPs (blowout preventer) are a type of BOP which consists two halves of cover, called ram blocks, to seal the top of the well in case of a kick or blowout. The covers are controlled by large diameter hydraulic cylinders, which close during a kick.
The covers of a ram BOP are made of steel, with components made of elastomer on sealing surface.Ram BOPs, or rather ram blocks, can be designed to either shut the well around the drill pipe or completely shear through the drill pipe.
Ram BOP classification is done on the basis of their shutting off capabilities. Pipe ram BOP have a hole (one-half on each pipe) with specific diameter, to shut the well around the pipe.Blind ram BOPs don’t have hole and can be shutoff only in the absence of a pipe.
Variable-bore ram BOP can close around pipes of varying diameters, while shear ram BOP are equipped with special tool cutting surface, to cut through the drill pipe and shut-off the well permanently.
Hence, shear ram BOPs are used in extreme cases as a last resort, as they limit future use of well. Given the risks associated with well kicks and blowouts, ram BOPs play a critical role in onshore and offshore oil & gas exploration activities, around the world.
Ram BOP: Market Dynamics
Recovering oil & gas industry has been driving investments in oil & gas exploration and production activities, especially in the offshore sector, which are anticipated to proliferate the demand for ram BOP market.
Blowouts in oil & gas can cause significant environmental, human life and monetary damage, which further necessitates the deployment of ram BOP in drilling and production activities.
The dynamic nature of crude oil prices is expected to have an adverse impact on the overall growth of oil & gas industry, affecting the demand trends of ram BOP market.
In addition, rising geopolitical tensions between oil producing and exporting (OPEC) countries and growing crude oil supply-demand gapare also expected to present challenges to the growth of ram BOP market.
Ram BOP Market: Regional Outlook
U.S. market is anticipated to create robust demand for ram BOP in the coming years, on the back of shale boom and uptick in exploration and production activities in the Gulf of Mexico.
Latin America, owing to flourishing oil & gas drilling in Brazil, Mexico, etc., is expected to present significant growth opportunities for ram BOP manufacturers in the foreseeable future.
Increasing number of oil & gas discoveries in the Middle East & Africa, in countries like Nigeria, Guyana, Angola, Mozambique, and South Africa, is projected to drive the demand for ram BOP in the region. China is anticipated to dominate the demand for ram BOP in East Asia region, owing to growing offshore E&P activity in South China Sea.
Asia pacific countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Australia and India are expected to remain high growth areas in terms of demand for ram BOP in the coming years, owing to the rising investments in offshore drilling and production.
