Large Bore System by FMC Technologies Subsea Systems, The Large Bore Wellhead System (LBWS) is an extension of the Rigid-Lock Stack Down (RLSD) system product line, with provision to run two casing strings (18" and 16") which are hung off submudline. It incorporates all the standard features of the Rigid-Lock Stack Down system. The high-pressure housing has a larger drift enabling the 18" casing string to run through it. The system includes additional trip saving tools such as single trip tools for the submudline equipment where the hanger-packoff assemblies are run in a single trip. The submudline hangers have features to verify proper landing in their respective receptacles. The system also includes bore protectors that can be run and retrieved with drill strings resulting in additional trip savings.
