Drilling Technological Innovations (DTI) has been awarded a contract to provide motion compensation packages for the Tiger III and Tiger IV drillships. DTI provided the complete motion compensation packages for Opus Offshore’s Tiger I and Tiger II drillships.
The scope of supply includes sets of 200k wireline tensioners and 800k crown-mounted compensators (CMCs), as well as the DTI proprietary riser recoil valve systems. The riser recoil valves feature a streamlined design to provide the safest, most responsive and reliable option in the industry. All systems will be designed and built from DTI’s headquarters and manufacturing facility in Houston.
Tiger I and Tiger II mark the first drillships built in China, according to DTI. “We are proud to be part of an important event in the history of China, as well as the offshore drilling industry,” David Trent, President and CEO of DTI, stated. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with Opus Offshore to provide industry-best motion compensation solutions.”
