Wild Well Control, a well control and engineering services company, has purchased subsea capping equipment from Shell EP Wells Equipment Services B.V.
Wild Well said on Thursday that the addition of this inventory enhances its current global equipment and response capabilities for the WellCONTAINED subsea containment systems and provides added capabilities for its 7Series Subsea Well Intervention group.
According to the company’s statement, the newly purchased equipment will be staged strategically in Houston, Aberdeen, Singapore, and elsewhere, as needed, for global deployment.
Apart from emergency response well control and well control/subsea engineering personnel, Wild Well’s current WellCONTAINED inventory is staged in a ready-to-deploy state in Aberdeen and Singapore.
The equipment at each location includes full subsea well intervention systems, including a subsea capping stack, debris removal shears, hardware kits for the subsea application of dispersant and inhibition fluids and other ancillary equipment.
