APRIL 5, 2017 (HOUSTON) – Samoco Oil Tools, a leading developer of tools for the oil and gas industry, is proud to announce it will receive a 2017 E&P Special Meritorious Award for Engineering Innovation. The company is receiving the award for its OneTrip® BOP Universal Test Tool. Representatives from the company will accept the award during the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Texas, May 1-4.
As one of 22 oilfield solutions to be recognized, Samoco was chosen based on evaluation of such criteria as innovation in concept, suitability as a practical solution to a real oilfield problem, potential for improving efficiency and safety, and potential for improving profitability.
OneTrip’s proprietary design cuts BOP testing time in half by performing all three federally-mandated, downhole tests in a single trip.
“This award is a source of great pride for our company,” said MJ Hellail, CEO of Samoco Oil Tools. “The OneTrip tool is changing the way that offshore drillers complete required BOP testing and provides significant cost and time savings to energy producers.”
