Diverters | SLB


Direct wellbore fluids away from the immediate drilling area

CF-A diverter drawing texture.

Cameron diverters are fully customizable for your floater and jackup rig operations, respectively. Designed for reliable, efficient use, each system consists of a housing, outlet valves, running tools, controls system, diverter assembly, overshot packers, and storage skids.

The CF-A diverter supports up to 75.5-in rotary tables and has a hang-off capacity of up to 2,500,000 lbm. It uses a single annular packing element with a pressure rating up to 500 psi. The CF-A diverter features four hydraulic locking dogs that reduce hosing and simplify operation. It eliminates the need to secure hoses to the diverter assembly while providing hydraulic fluid for the operations.

The CF-B diverter supports up to 47-in rotary tables and is qualified up to 2,000 psi. Packers can be split and hinged to allow them to be changed out with pipe in the hole. J-slot type running tools are entirely mechanical and require no hydraulics.
