One of the main elements of control over wells in the process of their construction is the blowout equipment, which includes annular preventers. This also applies to wells that provide degassing of coal veins to reduce their gas dynamic activity. Modern technology of work requires expansion of the functionality of the sealing unit of the annular preventers with the simultaneous provision of its operational characteristics. Determining the necessary durability of seals for different operating modes is the study of their stress-strain state. The paper deals with the possibility of using simulation modeling in the annular preventers design situations and within the study of the armature geometry influence of the sealant fittings on its stress-strain state. The method of determining the material constants to realize the Mooney-Rivlin model has been proposed. The behavior of low-density rubber in software product has been described by the finite element method. The aggregation error of experimental and theoretical studies is 5%. Therefore, the preconditions and the possibility of using simulation modeling in the design of annular preventers devices with increased operational characteristics have been created and confirmed.
The theoretical research and substantiation of specialists compliance estimation with corporate requirements on the basis of international certification and determination of its role in the system of enterprise’ staff management are carried out in the article. The algorithm of the enterprise’ effect achievement of the preliminary international certification of the personnel involved in oil and gas wells drilling is offered. The relationship between the number of persons trained and certified by International Well Control Forum in Drilling Simulation Center of the Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical University of Oil and Gas and the volume of drilling of oil and gas wells in Ukraine is analyzed. The task was accomplished by means of correlation and regression analysis. The results of the calculations allow us to make sufficiently plausible assumptions about the impact of training and certification on drilling volumes. It is established that the increase in the number of persons certified according to International Well Control Forum for one person will allow to expect the volume of drilling of oil and gas wells by 0.734 thousand metres per year.
