The BOP-RDT tool is designed to reduce the degree of subjectivity involved in the decision. Using deterministic criteria, DNV GL said the BOP-RDT applies a detailed qualitative method to help guide decision-making. This is entirely based on the losses of redundancy resulting from the impact of detected failures on the reliability of all BOP critical safety functions included in the tool.
“However, not all component failures are equally significant. Though some may lead to the total loss of a BOP critical safety function, others may have no impact on its continued safe use. Therefore, it is important to determine as concisely as possible when to leave it alone or retrieve it for immediate repair.
“This tool reduces uncertainty and improves decision-making on individual cases, ultimately saving on the costly implications of downtime during drilling.”
