- PRESS RELEASE
Conductor Installation Services (CIS), an Acteon company, announced that it has been awarded a USD multi-million contract via an agreement with Al-Shaheen Weatherford, which is a joint venture between Al-Shaheen Holding (a subsidiary of Qatar Petroleum) and Weatherford Holding BVI (a subsidiary of Weatherford International Ltd).
The three-year contract, which features two one-year options to renew, will be carried out by CIS personnel from its base of operations in Doha, Qatar.
CIS will use state-of-the-art 90 kJ hydraulic hammers to drive the 20-inch conductors that will create part of the foundations of the new wells.
To ensure that work proceeds as planned, CIS will supply a complete set of 90kJ hydraulic hammers, as well as a backup set and buffer set, in the event that two separate operations must be carried out simultaneously.
Building on Success
Since 2008, CIS has been supplying major operators with conductor installation services in Qatar. CIS recently completed series of operations on a number of wells operated by this particular operator in Qatar, which saw the conductor installation specialist drive 29 conductor piles during the past three years.
CIS anticipates that the first installation operation will take place at the end of Q1 2013. CIS performed its first-ever hydraulic conductor installation operation in 2005. Since then, the company has carried out over 700 conductor installation operations worldwide, in Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, India, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Trinidad, China, the Middle East, West Africa, and the Gulf of Mexico, among others.
CIS is a member of Acteon's Conductors, Risers and Flowlines group of companies.
