A wellhead is an equipment installed at the surface of a completed oil or a gas well that provides a structural and pressure containing interface for the drilling and production equipment. In other words, this object is installed where casings are terminated by hanging the casings using casing hanger and seals. It consists of following components:

·         Casing head

·         Casing hangers

·         Packoff seals, also called as isolation seals

·         Provides a means of tubing suspension.

·         BOP is attached to the wellhead during drilling operations.

·         X-mas tree, also called as Christmas tree is attached to the wellhead during production of hydrocarbon streams.

·         All the well access for any workover operations is through wellhead.
