Blowout Preventer The second line of defense for the workers and the well to prevent a blowout is the group of equipment called blowout preventers (BOPs). BOPs and associated valves are installed on top of the casing head before drilling ahead after rigging up. These high-pressure safety valves and associated equipment are designed to shut off the well hole and prevent the escape of the underground fluids and prevent a blowout from occurring. symbol,vector,illustration,fossil fuel,extraction,exploration,offshore,drilling,BP,Deepwater Horizon,spill,safety,environmental degradation
