Blowout Prevention System

A blowout endangers lives of the crew, can destroy a rig worth millions of dollars, wastes valuable hydrocarbons, and may damage the environment. In a blowout, fluid (oil, gas, or salt water) erupts from the well, usually with great force, and can ignite into a roaring inferno, especially if the fluid contains gas.
