DRILLMEC is an international leader in design, manufacture and distribution of drilling and workover
packages for offshore and onshore applications as well as a wide range of drilling equipment.
DRILLMEC is part of the TREVI Group, a multinational organization with more than fifty years of
activity in the drilling business. DRILLMEC is able to offer a complete range of products and
engineering support to cover all different application and market needs.
During 2012 and 2013 Drillmec has been awarded a total amount of approximately $250 million contract to
supply four offshore drilling and work over packages.
The offshore market is developing at an incredibly fast pace, and Drillmec is strengthening its presence with
confidence, ready to establish itself in this challenging and attractive market.
Two of those packages are 3000 HP offshore modules rigs to Perforadora Mexico. The third one is a 2000
HP complete drilling package for the development of Filanovsky oilfield in the Russian Caspian Sea.
While the latest one is a new compact unit hydraulic driven for Intervention & Completion Unit for dual
simultaneous operation with main drilling package for operations in the North Sea.
For the North Sea Project in particular Drillmec scope of
supply includes a tailor made HH220 FA multipurpose rig
suitable to cover all drilling and work over activities in an
offshore oilfield service. The rig will be designed to ensure
high safety standards, reliability and efficient operation rates
to ensure low maintenance costs and long operating life.
This tailor made HH220 package will meet all Statoil and
North Sea requirements which are the higher ones in the
world in terms of quality and safety standards.
All these contracts are an extremely important step for
Drillmec’s ambition to become one of the main players in
the offshore market, since all rig packages have been
designed and are being manufactured entirely by Drillmec.
All clients have chosen DRILLMEC for its solid background
in the offshore industry, the high level of technology of its
products together with competitive prices, reliable delivery
time and 24/7 after sales assistance.
The 2013 edition of the OTC (Offshore Technology Conference) in May was the perfect opportunity for
Drillmec to show the newly designed package to potential customers and explain the innovative aspects and
main advantages of the product. Those new platform rigs intend to respond to all different needs of different
More in general regarding the
specific modular rigs market, the
offshore industry around the world is
looking for various ways to improve
the installation of the offshore drilling
packages. Given the recent increased
emphasis on permits, certifications
and safety, often extremely time
consuming, especially in the Gulf of
Mexico, after the Macondo incident,
it is more crucial than ever that the
offshore platform gets installed in the
quickest and safest way possible.
On top of the elements just described, offshore rigs have to rely on traditional derrick barge cranes that are
often times not readily available to lift these drilling units onto the platforms. With this in mind, Drillmec
developed its Offshore Modules Platform Drilling Rigs, which do not need to be equipped with these derrick
barge cranes, in order to win this challenge.
These rigs are designed and built in modules so
that the modules can be installed by the drilling
rigs’ operational cranes, with the help of one set
of temporary cranes. The high number of light
modules in Drillmec’s Offshore Modules
Platform simplifies the installation process,
giving also the advantage of an even weight
distribution on the platform deck.
This is only the beginning of an offshore market
that will diversify and expand, while giving a
careful look to regulations, liability costs and
For all the ongoing project Drillmec has found an innovative solution to simplify the installation process and
cut the costs, after carefully studying the market’s feedback and requirements. Once again Drillmec has been
able to come up with solid and unique designs to meet the needs of its customers.
