EnerQuip, a leading supplier of torque machine solutions for the global oil and gas industry, has delivered a major contract with Vantage. The project will mark the first time one of its high torque machines will be used on a drillship, the sixth generation ultra-deepwater capable ‘Tungsten Explorer’.

The robust 200 thousand foot-pound torque machine, which can accommodate tools up to 18 inches in diameter, will allow make up and break out of bottomhole assembly equipment on board the vessel, reducing the potential for rig downtime. The drillship’s contract is scheduled to commence in February 2019.

Andrew Robins, Director at EnerQuip, commented on the award: “This represents a milestone moment for our team, we know that our machinery can withstand the rigours of the harsh environment at sea and we’re delighted to be able to demonstrate this for the first time.”

In addition, the team at EnerQuip was able to deliver the equipment within just 22 days from the point of order, offering a significant time saving on the project.

Robins adds: “We’ve seen a trend towards mobile torque machinery as the industry moves into increasingly remote regions, often some distance from maintenance bases. This option gives our clients increased in-field flexibility, whilst at the same time offering greater operational efficiency.”
