BJ Tubular Services Lands Shell Brazil Contract

BJ Tubular Services has been awarded a contract by Shell Brasil Ltda to provide a range of well services offshore Brazil. The contract provides for casing and tubing running services for Shell operations offshore Brazil, including ongoing drilling campaigns in the Campos Basin. BJ Tubular Services has commenced operations on behalf of Shell, with all related services being provided by BJ’s dedicated personnel and state-of-the-art equipment based at the division’s facilities in Macaé, Brazil.

The T-CAT is a new system that offers a simple, yet safer approach to running casing than traditional manual stabbing board methods. Introduced in spring 2005 in the North Sea, BJ will use this state-of-the-art tool that makes it possible to run casing without carrying out hazardous stabbing board operations. Operated remotely by one technician, the operator uses the T-CAT to centralise the joint prior to stab-in. The joint is then lowered and is made up using a power tong. The entire process is achieved without a stabber, and is operated from the rig floor.

“I credit the success of the casing and tubing running services we provided to Shell on the Bijupir & Salema development in the Campos Basin as one of the primary reasons that BJ was awarded this new three-year contract,” said Kenny Watt, general manager of BJ Tubular Services. “We will be drawing upon that experience and look forward to using our fully mechanised running system for the first time in South America,” he added.
