Samoco Oil Tools to accept 'Spotlight on New Technology' award at OTC

Published by

Samoco Oil Tools, a developer of tools for the oil and gas industry, is pleased to announce that the OneTrip® Universal BOP Test Tool has been recognised in the Offshore Technology Conference Spotlight On New Technology® Awards. The company will accept the award during OTC in Houston, Texas May 1 - 4, 2017.

“We are honoured to be recognised by industry leaders for our development of this innovative solution,” said MJ Hellail, CEO of Samoco Oil Tools. “The OneTrip tool is changing the way that offshore drillers complete mandated BOP testing and provides significant cost and time savings to energy producers.”

Nearly seven years ago, federally-mandated testing protocol required operators to test the integrity of their BOP equipment every 14 days. While operators have complied for years, no one in the industry has been able to complete the test in one trip, until now. One Trip’s proprietary design cuts BOP testing time in half by performing all three required, downhole tests in a single trip.

Each year, OTC recognises innovative technologies with the Spotlight on New Technology Award. The awards programme is exclusively for OTC exhibitors and showcases the latest and most advanced technologies that are leading the industry into the future.
