Duffy and McGovern Delivers to Alaska's North Slope

Duffy and McGovern has delivered four of its fleet of versatile units to the North Slope, Alaska, as demand for its high-specification continues to grow.

Duffy and McGovern Accommodation Services was engaged by Epoch Well Services and has delivered the 20' x 8' Zone 2 rated engineering cabins to three end-users in the far North Western US state.

A pair of units has been installed for use by ConocoPhillips Alaska on the Nordic 3 and Kuupik 5 rigs, with a single unit on board the Nabors Alaska 27E for ENI Petroleum and another on the Akita 63 for Anadarko Petroleum.

The deals are worth more than $100,000 to Duffy and McGovern, which was recently acquired by US oilfield services firm Superior Energy Services.

Vice president of US operations for Duffy & McGovern, Glenn Aguilar said: "Our modules are in high demand for use in offshore locations, and these contracts highlight their suitability for use in extreme conditions in land-based oil and gas production and exploration.

"Our cabins meet stringent safety requirements and can be modified to meet our customers' exact requirements, with our fleet of 20' x 8' modules available in an array of configurations to meet every application."

DMAS was acquired by Superior Energy Services in a $47 million deal in January, as part of the US firm's ongoing international expansion. Duffy & McGovern's products complement the service provided by Superior's existing accommodation subsidiary HB Rentals, which is headquartered in Broussard, Louisiana and provides accommodation and accessories to oil and gas companies in Oklahoma, Texas, the Rocky Mountains, Gulf of Mexico and Trinidad.
