Oil & Gas Case Study

Oil & Gas Machining & Welding

To support Shell Oil’s Appomattox project—the deepest oil field exploration project in the Gulf of Mexico—Tri Tool develops revolutionary 7-axis deep counterbore system 

With ever-increasing worldwide demand for petroleum and continually rising energy costs, there has been a serious need to exploit oil and gas reserves located in rich deep-water deposits. In July 2015, Shell Oil began construction of the Appomattox project, the largest floating platform to ever be constructed in the Gulf of Mexico capable of producing 175,000 barrels of oil per day. Not only was the new Appomattox project going deeper to produce oil, the increased depth meant that the pipelines used throughout the project needed to be larger and heavier walled to withstand the forces of the deeper water.

To support the high-volume pipeline fabrication operations of the Appomattox project, Tri Tool developed the revolutionary 7-Axis Deep Counterbore System with laser alignment.
