Reactive Wraps Up Six North Sea Projects

Aberdeen-based Reactive Downhole Tools said it has recently completed six North Sea installations for multiple operators on both the UK and Norwegian continental shelves, worth in excess of £500K.

Reactive said it had delivered its swellable packers to incredibly tight deadlines for one of the installations, and also achieved an industry first as one of its swell packers was deployed in an exotic brine blend that would ordinarily rule out the use of swellable technology.

Globally, the firm has also signed two new long-term agency agreements in Bahrain and Pakistan and invested an additional $250,000 into its Houston facility. The investment has enhanced Reactive’s ability to manufacture more components in-house..

Mike Allen, chief executive officer of Reactive, said: “We’re proud to have successfully completed six North Sea installations this quarter utilising our Reflex HP product line – two of these installations were particularly challenging. We look forward to continuing this momentum globally as the industry continues to pick up.

“The fact that we have in-house manufacturing in both our Aberdeen and Houston facilities gives us the ability to quickly turnaround tailored and bespoke solutions for our customers. It’s this provision, as well as our continued focus on providing outstanding customer service, that really sets us apart from our competitors.

“Our success is testament to this and it’s why we continually invest in new equipment – including our recent purchase of a HAAS four-axis vertical mill and a fully automated pipe blasting system. The equipment is capable of handling both carbon and CRA pipe in full range three lengths.”
