PRT Offshore commissions In-line Compensator in Gulf of Mexico

In-line Compensator

HOUSTON -- PRT Offshore’s In-line Compensator (ILC) has been successfully deployed and operated from a deepwater drillship in 3,500 ft of water in the Gulf of Mexico. The ILC provides passive compensation protection during “fixed-to-bottom” operations. Compared to standard compensating coiled tubing lift frames, the new ILC offers the following advantages:

• Reduces rig-up time up to 75% for safer, more efficient operations
• Enables storage on rig due to compact design and lower weight
• Adapts to standard coil or wireline lift frames for maximum versatility
• Eliminates capital expenditure by offering a rental option

“We partnered with a major operator to bring this innovative, DNV-certified solution to the deepwater market,” stated Patrick Placer, president and COO, PRT Offshore. “The ILC expands our offshore Hook-to-Hanger rental fleet by adding a passive compensation option for vessels equipped with active heave drawworks.” The ILC features a 750-ton static capacity with 600-ton compensating capacity and 15-foot compensating stroke, making it ideal for deepwater completion and well intervention projects.
