Suretank, the world's leading provider of engineered solutions to the offshore oil and gas industry, has manufactured and delivered specialised helifuel re-fuelling tanks and jettison skids for two platforms in the Gulf of Thailand.  

The equipment is for Shelf Drilling, the world's largest contractor of jack-up rigs, and along with the helifuel system a number of baskets and containers were also supplied to update the platforms' existing cargo carrying units.

The units were mobilised by Suretank’s logistics' team from its manufacturing base in Ireland to Dubai, where the jettison skids were attached to the rig.  The rigs then sailed to Thailand where the helifuel tanks were married to the platform and the CCUs were loaded on board ready for operation in the Gulf.

Greg Bailey, Sales and Operations Manager Asia Pacific for Suretank said: " Timing was critical as the rigs had a tight schedule to run to Thailand and into operation from their refit in Dubai."

On behalf of Jacking Offshore rig Shelf Drilling Chaophraya added: "We have been very impressed with the quality of Suretank's equipment and their ability to get the equipment delivered on time and fit for purpose."

Suretank is the world’s largest manufacturer of tanks and cargo-carrying units for the offshore oil and gas industry and all of its products are designed produced and certified to the most rigorous of offshore standards.

Suretank products are in use in every region of the world and its product range includes chemical and acid tanks, helifuel tanks, offshore containers, baskets, mudskips and cryogenic tanks.
