Abstract (en)

[origin: US2012318521A1] A method for controlling hydrocarbons flowing from a subsea structure comprises lowering an adapter from the surface to a subsea structure. The adapter has a through bore extending between an upper connector having a first connector profile and a lower connector having a second connector profile that is different than the first connector profile. In addition, the method comprises coupling the lower connector of the adapter to the subsea structure. Further, the method comprises lowering a containment cap from the surface to the adapter. Still further, the method comprises coupling the containment cap to the upper connector of the adapter.
