Wellhead system is one of the main systems in a subsea production. As the subsea industry has been growing at an impressive rate. The growth of the industry has been driven by the price of oil, which has allowed companies to invest in developing reserves in increasingly difficult-to-access areas. It the wellhead fails, there is little hope of keeping the flow of toxic crude oil from potentially annihilating an entire ecosystem. The affects of such a catastrophe would be felt throughout the entire globe, not just on the environment, but on people as well. Economically, environmentally and psychologically, the damage from this oil spill will be incalculable in more ways than we can imagine right now. Therefore, it is necessary for us to ensure that the wellhead components are good enough to use for a certain working condition. This project consists of the stress analysis of one of the
components in the wellhead system. The analysis of the wellhead component is done by using computer-based simulation software, which is SolidWorks Premium. The result from the analysis reveals that the current component and design is suitable for its specific working condition.
