Seadrill Westvela Installation

GC Energy Services group (GCES) was contracted by Seadrill to perform the installation of the West Vela second BOP HPU

The Project was performed in two phases

Phase I involved cutting two access openings in HPU room to rig in the High Pressure Unit and the Accumulator bottles

These access openings were then reinstalled by the GCES Team

Phase II consisted of installing stainless steel piping rated for 6000 psi using a tig welding method and stainless steel tubing. GCES also performed the internal passivation of the stainless piping for further corrosive protection of the system

All work was performed safely and with good planning, resulting in on budget installation
