Through integration, long-range vision, selected acquisitions and project diversification, he has expanded his business model and continues to guide The company’s vision of offering innovative solutions to its customers.

The Tech
Chet Morrison Contractors is powered by strong leadership and driven by a veteran team of dedicated professionals who provide unparalleled customer service and unique solutions at every opportunity. The company’s innovative team recently developed a game-changing innovation in subsea P&A cutting that’s safer and more efficient than other existing methods. Known as SHARC (Subsea Hydraulic Abrasive Rotating Cutter), this new technology in subsea plug and abandonment virtually eliminates the need for high-power jetting and explosives — and reduces overall job time by 60%. The prototype for SHARC was developed during a 2012 four-well Subsea P&A project for Helix ERT in three fields in the Gulf of Mexico. It proved so successful (saving the client millions of dollars) that following the project, engineers at Chet Morrison Contractors spent many months testing and refining the prototype to develop the new assembly. SHARC needs only a diver or ROV to position it over the pipe opening — then operations can be controlled and monitored from the surface. SHARC can make clean, even cuts on pipes two inches and larger, handle walls up to three inches thick with multiple strings and can cut any size caisson or jacket leg from surface or subsea to depths up to 500 feet. Another advantage is that SHARC can be deployed by Chet Morrison’s 240 foot, four-point DSV Joanne Morrison, thus avoiding the higher cost of larger spreads.
