Hydranautics Awarded Contract By Marathon Oil For Rig-Skidding Systems

Hydranautics Hydraulic Systems has received a contract from Marathon Oil UK, Ltd. for two rig-skidding systems for use on the Brae B platform for the North Brae gas condensate field in the North Sea.

Each system consists of two 420- metric-ton and two 210-metric-ton, push-pull capacity hydraulic gripper jack assemblies and a control console. The 420-metric-ton gripper jacks are the largest gripper jacks ever bought for rig skidding.

Hydranautics also has its equipment operating on Marathon's Brae A platform in the South Brae oil reservoir. Satisfaction with the way that equipment works led Marathon to grant Hydranautics the latest contract. Shipment of the new systems is scheduled for mid-1985.

Hydranautics Hydraulic Systems is headquartered in Goleta, Calif., with offices in London, Singapore, and Houston. The company designs and manufactures heavy-load moving equipment for offshore and shipyard-related activities, including systems for applications ranging in size from 50 to more than 50,000 tons.
