Overview

Designed for 15,000-psi operations in 2,500 ft of water or less

The STM-15 E subsea wellhead system is used for wells in 2,500 ft [762 m] of water or less that are being completed with a subsea tree tied back to a fixed bottom-supported platform, and for drilling exploratory wells. The system is ideal for all 15,000-psi drilling and completion operations in moderate water depths. The high-pressure housing is machined from F-22, 85,000-psi-yield forged material and is available for H2S service. The STM-15 E system incorporates the field-proven parallel bore metal (PBM) metal-to-metal seal.
