Company Announcement - Drilling companies are in a precarious position right now as they often rely upon antiquated rig stacking procedures to minimize the impact of idle times. During these down times, drilling operators attempt to minimize labor, equipment, and other costs without compromising their “rebound readiness.” Cortec® Middle East provides state-of-the-art preservation products, processes, and services to meet the often-contradictory demands of rig stacking.
When rigs are stacked (ie. Idled), operators are careful to preserve them effectively to assure their rebound readiness –ability to be quickly mobilized for service with zero loss of capital. This must be done utilizing proven reliable products that are easy to apply without posing any health, safety, or environmental risks.
Cortec® Corporation has organized its global resources to be on stand-by for its client’s needs. These products and services are available through rig stacking hubs in the UAE, Norway, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, Russia, Brazil, Canada, and several locations across the United States.
Cortec® Middle East has boosted its stocking capability at its world-class facilities at Dubai World Central; giving it the agility to support prompt deliveries into the Middle East and Africa. Experienced distributors are present throughout the region to provide in-market service and support. Field Service Engineers have been certified and are available regionally to provide guidance, training, and supervision. “We recognize the need for quick and effective logistical and technical support. We are committed to providing our clients with the needed expertise for their rig stacking needs.” said Usama Jacir, General Manager of Cortec® Middle East.
Cortec® manufactures environmentally friendly products to clean, protect, and preserve the different types of equipment found on offshore or land rigs. This includes electrical enclosures, static equipment, rotating equipment, piping, and structures. Cortec’s biobased and biodegradable VpCI®-422 Rust Remover and EcoLine® Cleaner/Degreaser are widely used by drilling companies for surface preparation. The VpCI® technology is available as additives, emitting powders, devices, or rust preventives for the protection of equipment internal and external.
