MTR100: Chet Morrison Contractors

Marine Technology Reporter

Founded in 1983, Chet Morrison Contractors is a privately held company that has steadily grown from an inland marine operation to a multidisciplinary diverse service company. The company provides integrated oil and gas industry services throughout the lifecycle of the well, ranging from marine construction and maintenance to P&A and decommissioning.

Chet Morrison Contractors operates four locations with convenient access to Gulf of Mexico: Houma, New Orleans, Mexico and Trinidad. Its Deepwater Riser Services Division has an API Spec Q1 Registered Quality Management System and is certified to provide the highest standard of inspection and repair services in the industry according to APIQR and OEM specifications. It is also certified as a Licensed Inspection & Repair Service Provider for GE Oil & Gas – one of only two such facilities in Louisiana. The company is also an approved inspection and repair vendor for Cameron as well as an authorized repair facility for Trelleborg. The breadth of Chet Morrison Contractors’ resources – from its dynamic team of experts, to its company-owned equipment and diverse fleet of vessels – forms a network of innovation that continues to drive its success. Chet Morrison Contractors’ newest tool, MUDBUG, is an air-actuated, self-propelled device that uses oscillating brushes to clean debris build-up inside drilling and production risers without relying on high-pressure water to remove rust, scale and drilling mud buildup. As it moves through the length of the riser and back out again, MUDBUG uses only 120-psi air to operate, eliminating the problem of water disposal and risk associated with high-pressure washing. MUDBUG requires a two- or three-man crew and is transported via plane or helicopter to any remote location. The tool’s small job box, measuring two feet by four feet, takes up very little space, making it suitable for rigs or other offshore operations.
