Customized Well Control Solutions
Applied Technologies for re-use of equipment
Platform installations in the North Sea have utilized various drilling and production programs throughout the life of the field resulting in inventories of well control equipment from different OEM’s that can be repurposed to meet the requirements for an upcoming drilling and production program.
When new wells are going to be drilled Operators can now leverage their assets, reduce cost and lead time by employing Aquamarine’s Customized Well Control Solutions to manufacture specialized cross over systems utilizing equipment from different suppliers.
