Drill stem valves, authorised inspection, service and repair.

Drill stem and top drive valves are critical well control items and form part of the routine BOP equipment test cycles.

Seen as the most critical well control equipment on a rig, it's recommended that all valves in the drill stem and top drive should be serviced and tested regularly by an approved, proven and experienced repair facility, to maximise valve performance, reduce potential problems during drilling, and reduce or eliminate rig downtime due to top drive and drill stem valve failure.
