INTECH Process Automation recently completed a site services and upgrade project at a drilling rig operated by a major US drilling contractor off the coast of Spain.

The client requested INTECH’s services based on INTECH’s prior working experience in similar upgrade projects for the same client and various major multinational IOCs around the world. The project included a comprehensive network upgrade and upgrades to clients, servers, historians, HMIs and two redundant sets of PLC 5 which were controlling a total of eight engines. Typically initial design, migration, installation and testing for jobs of this scope require significant down time. The INTECH project team compiled a comprehensive plan to install and execute the operation with minimal downtime performing a thorough lab test and executing a hot cutover of the equipment; resulting in only a fraction of typical downtime with no safety incidents or equipment losses.

INTECH’s swift execution and exceeding client expectations on the project prompted the contractor to request site support in various other technical areas of the rig.
