Portuguese term or phrase: Alojador
This is a sub item of a drilling glossary, without much more contect.
I know it is connected with Casing Hanger operations (some kind of seal maybe), and my doubt is whether I can used the literal translation here of High Pressure Housing/Seating or even vessel (as in pressure vessel)?
Thanks for any guidance on this
