Offshore Maintenance & Accommodation Facility
In 2004, Momentum launched its newly converted Offshore Drilling Support Barge, the GULFDRILL 9. Our “warebarge”, which can operate at water depths up to 500 feet, and it fills the gaps for offshore clients with limited storage, accommodations, and/or tool-handling capabilities. With this unique facility, clients can access materials quickly, eliminate repeated supply-boat trips, and speed rig operations to reduce the total time required to complete the project.
The GULFDRILL 9 is ideal for:
- Storing a wide variety of necessary supplies and equipment, including pipe, casing, cement, barite, drilling mud, drilling and potable water, chemicals, fuel and more.
- Accommodating up to 100 additional crew members.
- Placing coil-tubing and workover tools (i.e. snubbing units) on jackets and platforms using its two on-board cranes.
- Facilitating liquid mud mixing, storage and transfer through a built-in mud-handling system.
The GULFDRILL 9 complies with all safety and security requirements of ABS, SOLAS and ISPS certification.
