Houston, Texas, (September 24, 2018) – Reel Power Oil & Gas has developed the remote connector between the Wireline Pressure Control and crown valve at top of the frac tree in a hydraulic fracturing application.
For marine winch applications, there are many advantages to using synthetic rope as steel wire rope. Synthetic rope is lighter, more buoyant, and higher flexibility, all of which are even more important for marine applications.
Reel Power Marine & Energy, Houston, Texas, (August 23, 2022) – Reel Power Marine & Energy is proud to be part of the recent ultra-deepwater giant drillships build. These two (2) drillships have the first ever 20,000 psi well control system equipped with two 20,000 psi blowout preventers.
A leading drilling contractor has selected Reel Power Marine & Energy Depth Compensated Accumulators (DCBs) to retrofit to their Semisub deepwater drilling rig to increase available volume. The contract required more stringent sheering capabilities than existing equipment could handle. Adding additional conventional bottles was ruled out because of available space on the BOP. Several alternates for increasing volume were considered, but in the end DCBs were selected. The DCBs have proven to be extremely reliable with hundreds in operation and offer other advantages, including lower maintenance due to less equipment requirements and lower weight and space requirements due to high efficiencies especially at deeper water depths. In addition, once the nitrogen pre-charge is set, you don’t have to worry about changing for various water depths, saving non-productive time setting the pre-charge as well as minimizing calculations and personnel intervention. The DCBs are great for stack hopping!
Reel Power Marine & Energy NEW Smart Reel™ (Patent Pending) is a substantial upgrade to BOP control and IWOCS reels that addresses many challenges presented by offshore drilling contractors, including lowering operating costs, improving safety and improving the control’s response time.
Reel Power Marine & Energy has successfully tested the Loc-Torus II remote hydraulic connector on a toe prep operation in South Texas.The connector performed flawlessly on multiple connections and at pressure. The connector is designed to remotely attach the wireline BOP to top of frac tree, eliminating the need to send personnel up in a man lift to make and break the connection.
Houston, TX – September 14, 2016 - Reel Power Marine & Energy dba Radoil has just completed a major milestone in the testing of its patented Catahead drive unit for our line of Launch and Recovery System (LARS) platforms. After years of development, design, and testing, Reel Power’s Catahead design engineers and technicians have successfully completed function testing at 20,000lbs. The next and final step in the Catahead design evolution will be to complete the durability life cycle testing currently in progress at our Houston, TX facility located at West Rd & Beltway 8.
