Neodrill, the leader in pre-rig technology solutions, has launched a new service, the CAN-complete. The new offering will provide clients with full-service engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) for the subsea well top-hole and structural foundation. As part of this, Ross Offshore will act as Neodrill’s marine and chartering department.

The CAN-complete service will see Neodrill manage all aspects of a CAN installation – simplifying the process for clients by removing unnecessary interfaces with multiple suppliers. Neodrill will design and deliver the CAN solution best suited to the soil conditions, before organising the installation vessel. The Neodrill team will then work in partnership with Ross Offshore for the installation and subsea activity.

The CAN-complete will result in a reduction in the oil company’s internal resources required, thereby reducing project overheads. It will also utilise synergies from other projects and deliver streamlined processes, making campaigns with different clients possible. A reduction in lead time will also be possible on some projects. This service has been launched in direct response to client feedback.

Commenting on the news, Neodrill’s Chief Executive Officer, Jostein Aleksandersen, says, “Expanding into the service end of CAN installations is the natural next step for us at Neodrill. A number of our clients have recently asked us if we can manage the whole process and we are now pleased to be able to provide this to them. Neodrill will be a one-stop-shop for customers in terms of top-hole and structural well foundation service, which will go a long way towards streamlining the process and cutting costs further.”

“As part of this offering, we are very proud to announce this partnership with Ross Offshore. Much-respected in the industry for the quality service and consultancy they deliver, we know it will be a strong and worthwhile partnership between our two companies,” adds Aleksandersen.

VP Ross Offshore, Operations, Jarle Vespestad says, “We have previously worked with Neodrill on several projects, towards the same goal of safe and efficient CAN installations for our clients.This partnership will capture both companies expertise giving the market, access to a tailor-made EPCI solution for this scope.”
