Offshore Inland: Poised to Pounce on Offshore Upturn

Wednesday, August 08, 2001
Offshore Inland Marine & Oilfield Services of Mobile, Ala., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Offshore Inland Services that commenced operations on December 1, 2000. The fledgling operation timed its entrance into the market perfectly, and despite its short time of operation it is considerably long on references.

Offshore Inland Marine & Oilfield Services - which is ISO 9000 compliant - primarily is involved in the following business operations: turn-key hydraulic system engineering; hydraulic/pneumatic tubing & piping; steel renewals & fabrications; inside & outside machinists; and providing class certified welders.

The organization's expertise has been utilized on many of the world's most sophisticated offshore structures and vessels. For the DPDS' Jack Ryan and Russ Luigs, the company manufactured and commissioned HPU's for the vessel's drill floor. For Cal-Dive International's Q-4000, it designed and manufactured HPU's and Solenoid Cabinets for the Ballast Control System and Deck Machinery. Again for Cal-Dive, this time on Uncle John, Offshore Inland Marine & Oilfield Services redesigned and installed a new hydraulic lift and roll system for the vessel's drill floor. It also re-certified and repaired the vessel's two Aker 75-mt cranes, and renewed miscellaneous piping and tubing throughout the vessel.

For Ensco, the company installed new S.W. cooling systems for Ensco 7500's thrusters. It also designed and installed a new remote shutdown system for the JP5 fuel system, and installed a new hydraulic filtering system for the vessel's thrusters. For U.S. Ocean Rig Inc.'s Bingo II (Eirik Raude) the company installed a number of tubing systems, including ballast control, H.P. water wash down; hydraulic watertight doors; hydraulic hatch covers; choke & kill tubing; hydraulic ring main components; and derrick hydraulic piping.

For Noble Drilling, Offshore Inland Marine & Oilfield Services worked on three vessels - Max Smith, Paul Ramano and Jim Thompson. For the trio, it designed, built and installed a subsea tree lifting system including the HPU's. It also designed, built and installed an automated P-Tank system, and installed LMRP and BOP hydraulic tubing. Offshore Inland Marine & Oilfield Services also provides hydraulic component reconditioning services (pumps, motors and cylinders), offshore and onshore crane repairs, gearbox repairs and steering gear service engineers. The organization has extensive technical expertise supported by its own engineering department including Autocad Draftsmen. The company's professional engineers are trained and certified by the National Fluid Power Society.

The parent company, Offshore Inland Services, began operations in 1983, and currently has six locations across the nation. Offshore Inland also employs NFP trained and certified technicians, with expertise in trouble shooting and problem solving.
