Radoil’s MUX and Hotline Reels Assist in the World Water-Depth Drilling Record

Radoil is pleased to announce that its MUX and Hotline Reels were used on both of the following Transocean ultra-deepwater drillships as their water-depth drilling records were set offshore India. MUX and Hotline Reels are installed on the rig near the rig’s moon-pool. MUX Reels store and deploy electric and fiber optic cables and Hotline Reels store and deploy hydraulic hoses. The electric/fiber optic cables and hydraulic hoses communicate and operate the Blowout Preventer (BOP) System positioned on the ocean floor during deepwater drilling. Please read a portion of Transocean’s 2013 press release which follows:

“Transocean Ltd. (NYSE: RIG) (SIX: RIGN) announces that the ultra-deepwater drillship Dhirubhai Deepwater KG1 has set a new world record for the deepest water depth by an offshore drilling rig of 10,385 feet of water (3,165 meters) while working for ONGC off the East coast of India. This milestone surpasses Transocean’s prior world record of 10,194 feet of water set by the KG1’s sister rig, Dhirubhai Deepwater KG2, of 10,194 feet of water (3,107 meters) in 2011 while working for Reliance in India.”
