On October 31, the SPE ICoTA Europe held its traditional "Lunch and Learn" event in Aberdeen. During this forum, representatives of IOC’s, NOC’s and oilfield service companies inform themselves about technical innovations, new processes or solutions to defined problems.

The only speaker at this event was Stefan Hasselmann, Product Line Manager at KOLLER. For about 30 minutes he spoke about the compact-E-drive, our new electric drive system for wireline and logging winches. Stefan talked about the reasons for the development, the project phases from the design over the construction of the prototypes to the field tests with customers. The audience followed attentively his remarks on technological advantages and savings potential of the new technology. A particular interest the listeners developed in the future-topic of automation. The individually programmable control of the compact-E-drive units offers many opportunities. From remote monitoring, through pre-programming of job or well parameters to full remote control, anything is possible. The prospect of being able to operate future system generations with battery clusters, including energy recovery, was also received with interest.

We are very proud that we were able to present our new development in front of a high-profile audience and thanks for the great interest. Special thanks go to the ICoTA team for the excellent organization of the event.

Our first Offshore Coil Tubing Unit has arrived in Middle East

A few days ago, our first full ATEX and DNV GL certified offshore coil tubing unit has arrived its operation base in the Middle East region.

Due to limited space conditions on the offshore platforms, the unit was carried out in modular design. The 3 main components are a 504 HP hydraulic power pack, the operator cabin as well as the tubing reel skid with 6,000 meters of 1-1/2” tubing. Furthermore there is a transport container for the 80k injector head, BOP, stripper and other auxiliary equipment.

This modular design enables the splitted use on a vessel and on the platform itself.
