What is a Choke and Kill Manifold?
Manifolds are an assembly of valves, chokes, piping, spools, gauges, connecting blocks and buffer tanks. They are designed to control, distribute and monitor fluid flow. Manifolds can be configured to handle specific functions.
Choke manifolds are used in well control operations.
A fracturing manifold is used for directing the fluid and proppant to the correct well.
A squeeze manifold is used in squeeze cementing work.
The Choke Manifold used in drilling applications has valves, piping and at least two adjustable chokes configured such that one adjustable choke may be isolated and removed from service for repair or refurbishment while well flow is directed through the other choke.
An example of operational use would be if there was a well kick or blowout. The choke manifold would be used to control pressure by opening and closing the valves and chokes until the pressure has been brought under control.
The Frac Manifold is also a system of valves that facilitates the direction of flow for the treatment fluid. It is configured to allow for the quick redirection of fracturing pressures from one well to another, enabling pump trucks to run almost continuously thereby limiting non-productive time on site.
Configuring Manifolds for Operational Requirements
Manifolds can be configured in either horizontal or vertical configurations and can be single stage or multi-stage. No matter the configuration it will be designed to minimize its footprint.
Manifolds can come with many different operational requirements. These operational requirements can be tailored to the user’s specific end needs, including:
- Quantity of valves
- Pressure rating
- Materials (standard or sour service)
- Styles of valves and chokes
The valve and choke internal components are interchangeable with their respective OEM valves and chokes. At Heshka Oil we offer manifolds that are on par and compatible with Cameron choke and kill manifolds.
The manifold is usually integrated with a metal skid providing for ease of transportation. The skid comprises the necessary handling features that enable the use of common equipment to move it around at site.
API 6A and API 16C Manifolds
The choke and kill manifolds for well control systems for sale at Heshka Oil are manufactured to API 6A and API 16C manifold standards. The standards are met for design and quality, with traceability and serialization of valve and choke components. All equipment is tested individually and as an assembled manifold prior to shipping.
No matter the complexity of your requirements our engineering team can work directly with you to ensure you get the optimum manifold solution for your project. When you order choke and kill manifolds for well control systems online at HeshkaOil.com you get convenience, quality and affordability.
