Reel Power OG's Patented Shearable Drill Collars are designed to shear in commercially available Offshore Blow Out Preventers (BOP). Conventional drill collars have large cross-sectional areas for the weight and cannot be sheared in all BOPs, creating a section within the drill string that cannot be sheared. Drill Collars are 20 % heavier than traditional Collars. This reduces the number of drill collars required in the drill string. They provide a greater concentration of the weight on the bit. The Reel Power OG Drill Collar replaces the steel with heavy, softer lead to allow shearing by conventional BOP shear rams.
