Freeport-McMoRan orders blowout preventer from Cameron
Cameron announced today that it has received an order from Freeport-McMoRan Oil & Gas to supply a 25,000 psi blowout preventer stack and 25,000 psi manifold.
Cameron delivered the industry’s first and only 13-5/8″ 25,000 psi blowout preventer to Freeport-McMoRan in 2011. After successful and extensive use in the Gulf of Mexico, Freeport-McMoRan has decided to place this second order with Cameron for high pressure activity planned to begin in 2015.
Chairman and CEO of Cameron, Jack Moore, said: “Cameron has long been committed to leading the industry in this ultra-high pressure space. We will continue to provide customers the technology they need to safely recover oil and gas from challenging, high pressure fields. Cameron has now sold four 20,000-plus psi blow out preventers, establishing ourselves as a proven leader in this emerging market.”
Cameron is a leading provider of flow equipment products, systems and services to worldwide oil, gas and process industries.
