Sub Sea Services has completed delivery of a Telescopic Joint to Equinor Visund, Semi-Submersible Drilling and Production Facility working on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

Archer, a global oil service company, identified Sub Sea Services as the preferred vendor to supply replacement for the existing Telescopic Joint that had reached the end of its serviceable life.

A prerequisite for the delivery was that the Telescopic Joint could interface with all existing equipment, for plug and play compatibility, with no offshore modifications needed.

The new product meet all the latest API standards including 20E bolting, DNV-GL and customer requested specifications.

Sub Sea Services has executed the whole project from offshore survey, via fabrication, to testing and painting using in-house resources. Having all the engineering, fabrication, welding, machining and workshop capabilities internally, allows Sub Sea Services to optimize the delivery time and ensure the quality of the product.

We are very proud to add a new product to our OEM portfolio. The delivery of a complete Telescopic Joint demonstrates that Sub Sea Services is able to take on larger and more complex tasks than before. It is important for us to continue to evolve in line with the market and our customers’ needs. I am pleased to see that our clients value our integrity, expertise and ability to deliver that we have refined over 30 years in the oil and gas business, says CEO Bernt Arne Breistein.
