Shell Drilling Riser Loadout: January 2019

In January 2019 Core industries loaded out drilling risers onto an OSV (Offshore Supply Vessel) for Shell Oil. Core industries performed maintenance and refurbished the drilling risers and then provided storage for approximately 6 months. Work performed included, the refurbished and buoyance module repair, ID cleaning, OD cleaning, application of preservation and various other hardware modifications. When it was time for the loadout, the drilling risers were staged in running order and loaded out onto the OSV. It took approximately 6 hours to load the drilling risers and 2 ½ hours for sea fastening. The drilling risers are expected back at Core Industries in June for another round of refurbishment.
