DEVIN International, DeepBlue Technologies Provide Landing String Solution

DEVIN International and Houston-based newcomer DeepBlue Technologies are partnering on a complete landing string solution for an underserved portion of the deepwater completions market.

The completion tree package – fully compatible for installing completions through horizontal or conventional production trees – will be ready for service this summer and has been reserved for its first deployment in early September.

With a surface test tree from DEVIN and the subsurface completion tree from DeepBlue, the partnership represents a single-source rental package that extends from rig floor to tubing hanger. More importantly, the completion package is technologically superior to other available systems.

DEVIN's surface test tree, designed to be smaller, simpler, lighter and safer than traditional surface test trees, serves all well intervention applications. It results in greater time- and cost-efficiency during rig up and rig down and accommodates pressure up to 15,000 psi.

DeepBlue's subsea intervention tree also accommodates high pressure and high tensile environments and has been engineered to feature improved safety and reliability. It is the industry's shortest 15,000-psi subsea completion tree and features a two-million-pound tensile load capacity. Currently designed as a direct hydraulic system, the completion tree is limited only by a semi-submersible or other peripheral equipment, generally to water depths up to 5,000 feet.

DeepBlue is currently supplying auxiliary landing strings (spanner joint assemblies) and lubricator valves for a number of completion projects in the Gulf of Mexico.

DEVIN International has been providing rental equipment to the oil and gas industry since 1981. DEVIN, headquartered in Lafayette, La., has offices in Houma, La., and Alice, Cleburne, Kilgore, The Woodlands, and Victoria, Texas.

DeepBlue Technologies is a deepwater service company providing equipment and personnel to Gulf of Mexico oil and gas operations. The Houston-based company, launched by deepwater engineer Ross Trewhella in 2006, is establishing an operations base in Lafayette, La.
