  • Why do the wellhead leaks occur?

    New seals Worn seals (9 mo)

    Typical replacement of the seals is every 3 – 12 months. When Oil/water leaks can not be stopped by adjustments,

    installation of new seals occurs. As the seals’ shape deteriorates, the potential for leakage

    increases.
