Kinetic Mission: Protect & Strengthen Oilfield’s Social License to Operate

Innovative technology that offers industry components and operations from rank wildcat exploration through drilling / completions activities storing and flowing hydrocarbons.  K-BOS offers an 'Airbag' approach in the prevention of Major Accident Hazards (MAH) through its ability to Shear and Seal the wellbore in milliseconds.  The capability and capacity of K-BOS is unrivalled in the market place and when that understanding is realised projects that historically may have had operational limitations whether in Drilling, Completion, Workover and Abandonment designs can offer enhanced performance benefits e.g. Ability to use stronger, increased size drilling / completion strings whilst still retaining 'Shear & Seal' capability. Workover and completion activities in severe sour conditions. Reduced EDS sequence timing can open up use of DP units in shallower water depths (Joint study with Kongsberg) and several major operators are supporting our studies into that K-BOS enabler.

At this time our K-BOS product portfolio includes 3 sizes 5-15M (5 1/8"), 13-10M (13 5/8") & 18-15M (18 3/4").  The largest 18-15M has 3 designs that can be retrofitted to a Cameron TL, Hydril Compact or NOV NXT cavities or provided a Emergency Shut-in Device (E-SID) that is designed to fit between the SS wellhead and the rig BOP.

About Kinetic Pressure Control Group

Kinetic Pressure Control is a leading well control technology company that designs, manufactures, and provides innovative BOP pressure control equipment and services. Our mission is to protect the Oil and Gas industry’s social license to operate. Blowouts are an existential threat to the oil & gas industry, and despite strong focus from the industry it seems like year after year we see new headlines of blowouts with their accompanying losses. The problem is that the existing BOP is not sufficient to shut in the well in all situations. A new technology developed by Kinetic Pressure Control provides a solution that can stop a blowout and shut in a well no matter the established flow or size, type, or position of a given tubular across the BOP. Kinetic's flagship product, called the Kinetic Blowout Stopper (K-BOS) is best described as "the airbag for the Oil & Gas Industry."​ The K-BOS’ unique design, utilizing the power of kinetic energy, greatly limits the potential threat posed by blowouts by being able to shear and seal anything above the bit in the well, instantly with ultimate reliability. The K-BOS has the potential to be retrofitted to existing subsea stacks or may be added to the stack as a failsafe in the case of high risk coiled tubing, drilling, workover, and snubbing operations. Shear Anything. Seal Instantly. Ultimate Reliability.
