1.1. Objective This procedure addresses makeup, running, the alignment, connection the Three and of BramBOPto the Horizon BOPflexjointwith a flanged mnnection.Thereis a separate procedure the running the ThreeRamBOPwith an overshot for of connector theflange if connection optionis discarded. 1.2. High Level Procedure The ThreeRamBOPand Flange assembly run and connected the seafloorin one is on run. Thereis an H4 connector between flange the andThreeRamBOPsub-assemblies. The flangeon top of the flexjoint has beenprepared priorto starting procedure. this . DecktestandQC all equipment the rig priorto running. on Makeup and runthe assembly. current The running assemblv includes a perforated riseriointfor venting and glycolinjection the ThreeRamBOp. into Align,land,and makeup theflange the Horizon joint. to flex Testthe systemand prepare futureoperations. for
