$ 3 . 2 - M i l l i o n Expansion Of Facilities Planned By N a t i o n a l Supply
National Supply Company, major oilfield equipment manufacturer, has announced a $3.2-million expansion of wellhead repair, fabrication, and distribution capabilities by its Well Control Systems group. The expansion plans call for establishment of a new wellhead repair center in Kilgore, Texas, and additions to existing wellhead centers in Aberdeen, Scotland, and Amelia, La.
The Kilgore facility is the first to be established exclusively for repair by Well Control Systems, said National Supply. The facility will perform major wellhead repair in support of the company's 12 regional wellhead service centers in the U.S.
A 6,000-foot addition is being made to the Amelia wellhead center. The addition will house an expanded fabrication 'repair department and enable the center to keep pace with strong wellhead service demand in the area, said the company.
The Aberdeen wellhead center, which specializes in service of advanced subsea wellhead equipment for the North Sea, is being expanded by 7,000 square feet to allow the installation of additional machine tools. The move will allow repair by the facility of all National subsea equipment in use in the area, for shorter repair times and greater convenience of users, according to the firm.
The Well Control Systems group has factories in Houston, and Londonderry, Northern Ireland.
