Drilling Rig Refurbishment
Refurbishing and upgrading both land and offshore rigs is a significant part of our core business worldwide. Since 2004, the amount of refurbishing activity has increased due to rising demand in the Gulf and throughout the world.
In recent years, Momentum has managed several rig refits on jack-up rigs for which it also had management drilling contracts. We completed refits for the ORIZONT, the FORTUNA, and the EEIV (nee BAHRAM) in the UAE, on time and within budget. All of these rigs are currently active.
Momentum can upgrade virtually all rig components. Common upgrades include:
- Refurbishment of drilling equipment
- Overhaul of complete rig
- BOP handling solutions
- Modifications to increase rig capacity
- TD upgrades
- Replacement masts and substructures
- Mud systems & high-pressure piping
- Rig moving systems
- Spare parts
