MAP FOR SUCCESS

Anytime. Anywhere. With equipment stored in South Louisiana, Texas and the United Kingdom, we can fulfill your ram rental needs at a moment’s notice and worldwide.

QUALITY SERVICE

Whether your ram rental needs are long or short term, VBR is here to help with your job. A VBR BOP specialist will notify the customer when it is advisable to replace elastomers and/or ram blocks. If a replacement is needed following a well transfer, VBR can assist in once again achieving a pressure test on the BOP.

RETURNED RAMS ARE THOROUGHLY CLEANED, INSPECTED & RESTOCKED

When a ram is returned, our experienced VBR BOP ram specialists thoroughly clean and inspect all components for damage. A ram will only go back into our inventory once it is cleared by one of our knowledgeable inspectors.
