Trelleborg Sets Up GoM Buoyancy Repair at Chet Morrison Contractors

Trelleborg’s offshore operation has formalized its Drill Riser Buoyancy Module (DRBM) repair offering for the Gulf of Mexico through its partnership with the Deepwater Riser Services division of Chet Morrison Contractors.

DRBMs are installed to reduce a drilling riser’s net weight in water, and ensure that the structure and drilling vessel are supported.

This new service will allow Trelleborg’s customers to have their buoyancy repaired at one of Chet Morrison Contractors’ four locations with convenient access to Gulf of Mexico. Chet Morrison Contractors underwent an onsite audit to ensure that its processes and workmanship met Trelleborg’s standards. Following the assessment, Chet Morrison Contractors were named as an authorized repair center for Trelleborg.

John DeBlieux, vice President of the Deepwater Riser Services division of Chet Morrison Contrators, says: “We are pleased to be certified as an authorized repair center for Trelleborg. Damage to DRBMs can happen at any time so it is critical that the module is assessed, repaired and returned to site as quickly as possible. By working in collaboration with Trelleborg, we can bring the buoyancy back to the highest performance possible using OEM approved processes, materials and standards.”

Alan McBride, vice president Drilling and Syntactic Products for Trelleborg’s offshore operation, says: “Once we deliver products to our customers, the service doesn’t stop there. We are proactive business partners adding value through after sales services, such as local buoyancy repair to our own high standards. We strive to enhance the business performance and competitiveness of our customers and are delighted to offer this service, through our partnership with Chet Morrison Contractors. This is a further step in providing asset management support to our customers whenever and wherever they need us.”
