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.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
