Camerons Multi-Bowl Wellhead System (MBS) is
a compact, unitized wellhead that can be used as
an alternative to conventional wellhead systems in
onshore and platform applications. The MBS wellhead
offers the following advantages over
conventional systems:
The lower and upper casing
heads are installed as a single
unit, saving installation time.
T
 he casing and tubing can be
installed, landed and sealed
through the BOP stack,
increasing safety and saving
rig time typically required to
remove and reinstall the BOP
stack during conventional
wellhead installations.
T
 he MBS wellhead uses
many conventional wellhead
components and practices.
Components of the MBS wellhead system
are based on field-proven technology and offer a range
of features.

Lower Casing Head


T
 he lower casing head incorporates a slip-on weld
bottom connection with a single O-ring to seal
between the casing stub and the casing head ID.
T
 he lower casing head is available with line pipe
threaded, flanged or studded outlets.
T
 he casing head incorporates a straight-bore design
with a 45-degree load shoulder for casing hanger
support. This design reduces hoop load on the
housing, provides a high hanging capacity and reduces
the risk of bowl damage due to drillstem rotation.

Upper Casing Spool


The upper casing spool is a straight-bore design.
T
 he casing spool includes two sets of Type N lock
screws to lock down wellhead components. These
lock screws are designed with the packing in front
of the threads to prevent contamination of the
threads by wellbore fluid.
The spool is available with studded outlets.

Casing Hanger
T
 he MBS casing hanger is a high-capacity, mandreltype hanger, which is rated to the full joint strength
of the suspended casing.
The hanger is designed with integral flutes which allow
cement returns to pass upward through the BOP stack.

Pack-off Bushing
T
 he MBS pack-off bushing lands on the casing hanger
to seal the intermediate casing string(s) and support
the following casing or tubing string(s).
T
 he inner seal on the bushing is a P Seal, which
is energized by plastic packing. This seal can be
re-energized, if necessary, throughout the life of the
well. The outer seal is a radially energized dovetail seal.
Inner and outer pack-off seals can be externally tested
immediately after the pack-off bushing is installed.

Tubing Hangers
T
 he MBS tubing hanger lands on the pack-off bushing
and is locked in place with Type N lockdown screws.
S everal alternative tubing hangers are available,
including the coupling (HT and HT-2), tubingless (TLC),
mandrel (CXS and T) and dual (MB-CDT and MB-TLC)
versions. Control line options are available for most
applications. A comparison of these tubing hangers is
available on the MBS Tubing Hanger Comparison chart.

Tubing Head Adapter


T
 he MBS tubing head adapter provides the connection
point for the Christmas tree. It is available in several
types to fit specific applications.

Emergency Slip-and-Seal Assemblies


In the event that casing becomes stuck and slips must
be set, the upper casing spool can be lifted to install
a slip-type hanger, cut off the casing and install the
emergency pack-off bushing assembly. This feature
eliminates the expensive, time consuming process of
cutting pipe inside the head with internal casing cutters.

Auxiliary Equipment
C
 amerons MBS system has a complement of
installation tools, including BOP test plugs, wear
bushings and handling tools.

Camerons Multi-Bowl Wellhead System can be used as an alternative


to conventional wellhead systems in onshore and platform applications.
