Oil and Gas
Inspections and Certifications
With our experience in structural finite element analysis, coupled with practical fabrication experience, we understand failure dynamics, load path, and where damage can be expected. We can then direct repairs to the required areas in the most non-intrusive manner possible, and in the most cost effective and efficient manner.
Following the repairs, we can also provide repair certifications.
Rig Design - Analysis - Modelling
There are many different sizes and configurations of drilling rigs from stiff singles to cantilevered triples on swing-up substructures. Successful rig design is a partnership between operations and engineering. Using Solidworks to create computer models allows operations personnel to investigate clearances and sightlines to ensure that their requirements are met. A three dimensional computer model can also aid field personnel in determining desired routing for electrical and hydraulic systems to ensure that a clean design is maintained. Additionally, attention to detail in developing the computer models ensures that these requirements are maintained through the design and fabrication process. This attention to detail in the preparation of fabrication drawings also minimizes the amount of rework during a project, reducing manufacturing costs and ensuring that it gets done right the first time. Concept development leads into design analysis for optimization. Our approach is to combine structural Finite Element Analysis (FEA) with solid body FEA for investigation at highly loaded locations. This provides our customers with robust designs. Whether the design has been previously built or if it is a prototype, our goal is to deliver a successful project the first time. If you have any new concepts that you would like to develop to improve operations, we would love to partner with you to help you succeed.
We have experience in providing ancillary equipment for new or existing rig designs. Modifications of two different types of substructures so that they could be fitted with an interchangeable rig moving system. Additionally we have experience with the design of pipe handling equipment from pipe tubs to pipe racks, to pipe arms or catwalks. We also have experience with dewatering equipment such as centrifuges and centrifuge stands and solids handling systems.
We have designed Driller's Cabin pullouts and Doghouse/Water Tank combinations with various types of raising systems. Additionally we have designed Toolhouse, Generator, Combination buildings and Pump houses. If you need new designs or modifications to existing buildings, we can help.
B626 and TC 44 Tanks
A complete line of B626 and TC44 Tanks have been designed with fabrication costs in mind.
