SmartBOPTM Patent Numbers: 9.109.430 | 9.850.729 
Clean Technology. Buffering the environment from hydrocarbon contamination

AI From the wellbore to the web.

Newton’s Law #1: “Inertia is the principle that an object will tend to keep moving at a constant speed and in one constant direction unlesssomething else acts to change it. That external force could be almost anything.” 

True to this time honored principle of physics, the SmartBOPTM draws upon its artificial intelligence capabilities and robotics to oppose and direct surging millions of gallons of hydrocarbons, propelled by volumes of pressure, into manageable and recoverable proportions.Patented in structure and method, it is the only blowout preventer patented in a hundred years.

The Game Changer 

Traditional BOPs feature four ram blocks which are: blind ram, variable bore, shear, and the blind shear. Its function is to either block the surge of fossil fuel when the volumes of pressure are high or shear the pipe to alleviate pressure and save the infrastructure.

But first, let us acknowledge the four major problems in oil drilling which are velocity, control, erosion and freezing.

In Contrast 

Leveraging on the premise that volumes of pressure are best managed rather than controlled, in contrast, the chambers based SmartbopTM  controls velocity and erosion at well kill by redirecting the surge propelled by volumes of pressure to its chambers. This process blunts the force of velocity and minimizes the erosional process forged by sediments and the extreme heat of the hydrocarbons in a closed and constricted space (7-inch pipe). The chambers are vent and pump enabled, thereby, facilitating a free flow of hydrocarbons through vents and into containers, and prevent freezing. These control mechanisms prevent erosion instigated oil spills catalytic to explosions. Securing the integrity and usability of the wellbore.

What the Experts Are Saying 

Although blowout preventers are just one of the important barriers for avoiding a major offshore accident, the specific findings from the investigation about this BOP’s unreliability illustrate how the current system of regulations and standards can be improved to make offshore operations safer, MacKenzie said. Ultimately the barriers against a blowout or other offshore disaster include not only equipment like the BOP, but also operational and organizational factors. And all of these need to be rigorously defined, actively monitored, and verified through an effective management system if safety is to be assured. Source: WorkBoat.com

Although there have been regulatory improvements since the accident, the effective management of safety critical elements has yet to be established, investigator Mckenzie said. This results in potential safety gaps in U.S. offshore operations and leaves open the possibility of another similar catastrophic accident. Source:WorkBoat.com

But there is currently no alternative to the use of blowout preventers on many wells. As the second of two barriers to containing formation pressures, the B.O.P. is integral to doing our job, said John Rogers Smith, an associate professor of petroleum engineering at Louisiana State University.

Ultimately The SmartBOPTM  Proposes to be the Standard Solution to Existing Problems 

The SmartBOP UniverseTM  offers a comprehensive system that is passive, progressive, and interactive. It is a stable anchor to an oil drilling and production operations. While offering the ability to surveil and present predictable actionable situational analysis. It allows for a dyamic data anaytics based response and support online and onsite. It is designed to:

  • Prevent catastrophic oil spills;
  • Protect and preserve the ecosystem;
  • Safeguard marine and wildlife;
  • Uphold the health standards of the food chain from hazardous contaminants;
  • Maintain reusability of the wellbore;
  • Secure the sustainability of the infrastructure;
  • Save lives; 
  • Protect the bottom line; and
  • Connect onhore and subsea oil wells to the cloud.

"Panoramic Analogous Appraisal Decisions Standard (PAADS)" A Command and Control Center

The SmartBOPTM corresponds to a command and control center called "Panoramic Analogous Appraisal Decisions Standard (PAADS)". In an environment where seconds and nanoseconds delineate revenues from catastrophic costs in billions of dollars, PAADS, concurrently allows corporate decision makers, petroleum field engineers and BOP (Blowout Preventer) Control Engineers, real time perspective on events, data, analysis, and prescient warnings. Accurate readings on volumes of pressure buildup, anomalies within the wellbore, and emissions, are worthy of attention that necessitate an immediate and timely response. Operators are presented actionable instantaneous data reference to manage the situation, avert a catastrophe, or kill the well.

PAADS receives this information from the gauges, sensors and flow control mechanisms in the internal server facilities that are inherent to the hydrodynamic and thermodynamic SmartBOP; making it the robust and intelligent technological choice suitable for deep subsea and onshore installations.


SmartBOPTMs brain and data center is divided into QUADS (Queued Universal Accelerated Data/Delivery System). It is software driven and runs on a Secure Dedicated Cloud Array (SDCA). Appropriate redundancies are provided at each Quad.  It can be integrated into existing BOP stacks. Online support is available 24/7.

Q1 & Q3 monitors hydraulic and pneumatic Shutter Ram Activities.
Q2 & Q4 monitors sensor readings, through flows, mud lines, emissions and vent/pump activities. 

WBV/S - Wellbore Video & Sensors monitors seismic vibration activities and surveillance via picture on picture computer monitors.

Alert Monitors provide a heads up for repairs, and data analytics on drilling site anomalies.

The cognilytics feature sends a well kill alarm and initiates shut mode in preparation for vent deployment should volumes of pressure continue to rise above manageable levels.

Existing christmas trees have a current technical limit of up to around 3,000 meters subsea, with working temperatures of -50 degrees Fahrenheit to 350 degrees Fahrenheit with a pressure of up to 15,000 psi. The deepest subsea tree installed was in the Gulf of Mexico at approximately 2,700 meters.
