Drilling and Production Vessels



                             PLATFORM
        DRILL SHIP




     SEMI-SUBMERSABLE
                        FLOATING PRODUCTION VESSEL
The Drilling Process
              Drill String or Crown Compensator


              Motion Compensators




              Riser


              Blow Out Preventer


               Drill Bit
          BOP System
 Primarily to
  prevent gas and
  oil ‘gushing’ from
  high pressure
  wells.
 To control well
  operations during
  drilling.
Motion Compensator Systems
  To compensate for
   movement
   between the
   seabed and a
   floating vessel.
  Maintains down-
   force or tension on
   cables and drill-
   strings.
SUB-SEA PRODUCTION
      SYSTEMS
     Subsea Production
 Cheaper than a
  platform
 Can be used in deep
  water
 Ideal for ‘marginal
  fields’
 Controlled through
  long hydraulic
  umbilicals
         Erifon HD603
 BOP Control Fluid
 Used diluted with water (and Glycol) at
  100:1.
 Low Toxicity
 High Stability
 High Biodegradability
 With Lubricants, Biocide and Corrosion
  inhibitors.
           Erifon 818
 For use in Motion Compensators
 Extremely High Compression Ignition
  Ratio
 With Lubricants, Biocide and Corrosion
  inhibitors.
        Oceanic Fluids
 Ready to Use Subsea Production
  Control Fluids
 Extremely Stable
 Upto 180°C Operating Temperature
 Low Viscosity for Fast Response
 With Lubricants, Biocide and Corrosion
  inhibitors.
 Environmentally Friendly for Marine
  Discharge.

OCEANIC PRODUCT RANGE
 North Sea                  Flat
 Gulf of Mexico             Flat
 Brazil*                    Up +5 to +10%
