ITN Camera Crew Filming at ROMAR HQ
The ROMAR team just spent a day filming with an ITN Productions camera crew at our Aberdeenshire base. We look forward to sharing some of the footage with you in the near future!
New ROMAR SS1000 Installation
Our SS1000 system has just been urgently installed for a client in the UK North Sea, following the failure of a competitor swarf unit. Thanks go to the ROMAR International operations team and crew for their rapid response, saving the operator further downtime and expense.
SS1000 Swarf Handling Performance in the Middle East
We’ve just completed another successful swarf handling job for a major operator in the Middle East. 106 ft of 9-5/8” 53.5 lbs/ft casing was milled, with a total of 2.6 tons of debris (steel + cement) recovered by our SS1000 unit. The attached photo illustrates our Flowhead assembly being installed prior to milling operations. This eliminated debris plugging in the rig lines and the associated down time. The job was completed with zero NPT and zero LTI’s.
Upgraded Packer Management System for South America
The ROMAR team are preparing an upgraded Packer Management System for shipping and installation on a deep water drill ship in South America. This system uses a new fail-safe dual power supply and PLC for reliable operation in harsh conditions. Our electronically activated PMS system immediately detects and reacts to very small drops in riser pressure, automatically energising the back-up slip-joint packer - thus guarding against mud spills and environmental damage from drill ships and semi-submersible rigs. If you would like to discuss any similar applications then don’t hesitate to contact us on email@example.com
New Equipment Fabricated for Operations in Africa
The ROMAR team have just completed fabrication & assembly of a large adjustable support frame to optimise our SS1000 system on an upcoming land decommissioning campaign in Africa. This allows gravity returns from our unit to the rig active system and avoids the use of centrifugal pumps and a holding tank. Thus minimising equipment cost and footprint for our client. The use of a ‘gravity’ return system also reduces complexity in a swarf system, thus reducing the risk of downtime and NPT during well abandonment operations.
New SS1000 System Air Freighted to the Middle East
We’ve just air freighted another SS1000 swarf system to the Middle East for a major operator’s upcoming well abandonment campaign. The system was loaded into a Cargolux 747 freighter at Prestwick for shipment to the Gulf. Thanks to the hard work of the ROMAR operations and workshop teams as we serve new markets around the world.
SE-Asia Ez-Clean Customer Feedback
Extremely positive feedback received from a ROMAR International customer in SE Asia who applied our Ez-Clean system on their 2018-2019 drilling campaign “This is the second campaign to utilize the magnets and the efficiency continues to be outstanding. We experienced zero MWD/LWD failures attributed to metal cuttings and none were reported in the tool tear downs. We also experienced zero pump issues related to metal cuttings in the drilling fluid. These results are outstanding given the fact that over 500 feet of 7” casing was milled and the tortuous nature of the wells drilled. We look forward to utilizing the magnets on future projects”
SS1000 System Performance Update
The ROMAR team have just completed the latest well on an ongoing UK milling campaign. The client has reported that our SS1000 system is “working extremely well” with 2,998ft of casing and liner milled at an average ROP of 5 ft/hr with zero non-productive time or lost time incidents on the job.
ROMAR Commission 17th New SS1000 System
We have just commissioned ROMAR International’s 17th SS1000 swarf handling system. In the past four years our fleet has more than doubled in size to meet increased demand on decommissioning and well abandonment campaigns worldwide. This unique SS1000+, Zone 1 compatible unit can operate at flow rates of 1,500 gpm and capacities of up to 2,000 Kg/hr, thus removing any restriction on milling performance for our clients.
ROMAR Awarded New Business in North Africa
We are delighted to report that ROMAR International Ltd have been awarded the swarf handling business on a series of up to six land wells for an international operator in North Africa. Our SS1000 system will remove any restriction on parameters to allow optimised milling performance on this campaign
ROMAR International HSEQ Performance
We are proud to report that 2018 was a record year for ROMAR International. We recovered 1,038,739 kg of swarf during the milling of 17,642 ft of casing over 54x milled intervals. Despite this being the busiest year in the history of the company, we maintained an exemplary safety record. The below stats are a testament to the focus of our team.
