A Logan Industries 750/500 t compensating coiled tubing lift (CCTLF) successfully performed over well centre on the Atwood Condor for subsea P&A operations during July and August, 2015. Logan delivered the industries first rental CCTLF which is being utilised as part of an 18 month campaign. Logan provided a full service approach including engineering, manufacturing, pre-deployment testing and service and an offshore team to operate the CCTLF. Logan engineers designed and manufactured custom installation aids specific to the Atwood Condor used to reduce rig up time. The Logan offshore team was led by service personnel with significant international experience with numerous CCTLF systems used in both completions and interventions. Joe Cooper (Atwood Condor OIM) had this to say: “Very well made machine. Got the job done safely and efficiently. Good job.”
The CCTLF is engineered to provide redundancy to active heave compensation deployed on a drillship or semi-submersible. The development of the Logan CCTLF system is the result of many years of service and repair experience on deepwater motion compensating equipment including compensating coiled tubing lift frames. Logan has taken its engineering knowledge, hydraulics and pneumatics expertise, and combined it with an experienced offshore CCTLF service team to provide a complete in house solution. Logan has 4 750/500 CCTLFs either delivered or in the manufacturing process. Logan has provided offshore technicians to operate and service another 4 CCTLFs in the Gulf of Mexico and in West Africa. This experience has positioned Logan as the industry leader in both the manufacturing and international offshore operation of compensating coiled tubing lift frames.
Logan’s in house cylinder manufacturing and specialisation in motion compensation equipment has proven invaluable as Logan works with oil and gas operators to meet increasing capacity and stroke requirements. Logan will continue to provide both static and compensating coiled tubing lift frame solutions as well as utilising its expertise to expand its completions and interventions support equipment. With an industry focus on reducing CAPEX, Logan is providing rental options in addition to sales and service. In the last 6 months, Logan Industries has increased its compensating capacity with current CCTLF designs, grown its offshore international service team, and has delivered the industries first rental CCTLF.
