At $28 per barrel, repair and refurbishment of offshore equipment cannot be overlooked

With the price of oil hitting a 13-year low of $28 per barrel we are looking at ways the oil and gas industry can significantly reduce costs, waste and environmental impact through effective repair and refurbishment of offshore equipment.

Offshore equipment operates in the harshest of environments and has to be designed and treated to withstand wear, corrosion, high temperatures and pressure. But, repairs can be carried out in-situ without significant disassembly using the SIFCO Process®.

What equipment can be repaired and refurbished?

Using the SIFCO Process® engineers have a cost-effective way to extend the service life of a wide range of equipment including:

  • Drill Bits
  • Tubing Hanger Bodies
  • Inner Mandrels
  • Small Port Repairs
  • Outer Cylinders
  • Casing Hangers
  • Riser Spanner Joints
  • Tension Joints
  • Tubular Connections / Threads

Ensuring all services are provided by an oil and gas industry certified supplier is essential. Conducting additional testing such as; non-destructive testing and pressure testing where appropriate also helps to ensure your equipment is refurbished to the highest standards.
