Halliburton Launches Subsea Well Control Response Suite
- Business & Finance
Boots & Coots Services, a Halliburton business, has developed the Global Rapid Intervention Package (GRIP), a suite of services to help reduce costs and deployment time in the event of subsea well control events.
Reportedly, GRIP provides well planning and well kill capabilities facilitated by the company’s global logistics infrastructure and exisiting product service lines. This includes both an inventory of well test packages, coiled tubing units and relief well ranging tools.
In addition, GRIP features the new high temperature, 15,000 psi RapidCap Air-Mobile Capping Stack. Sourced from Trendsetter Engineering, RapidCap incorporates a specially designed gate valve-based system and aims to reduce deployment time by up to 40 percent over competing systems.
“We are proud to offer the Global Rapid Intervention Package that will provide our customers with easy access to containment and relief capabilities even in the most remote areas,” said Jim Taylor, vice president Consulting & Project Management. “Boots & Coots has long been recognized as a global leader in well control response and GRIP furthers our commitment to safe offshore operations.”
GRIP and the RapidCap Air-Mobile Capping Stack are expected to be ready for deployment by the end of 2016.
