ABERDEEN, Scotland -- Total E&P Borneo B.V. has contracted BJ Tubular Services to provide a range of well services in Brunei Darussalam. This contract is for hammer conductor-driving, casing and tubing running, onshore shoe tracking and miscellaneous make-up services for three wells on Total's offshore development in Block B, located approximately 50 km (50,000 mi) north of the capital city of Bandar Seri Begawan.
BJ will use two hydraulic hydrohammers to install three 30 in (762 mm) conductors. The hydrohammers deliver precise, concentrated blows to the piling column, driving piles deeper and faster than other methods.
The work also includes running 13% chrome tubular completions and expandable liners from the new built jackup rig Maersk Completer. BJ will use its Chromemaster power tongs and specially modified running and handling tools to carry out this work.
