The new service organization will offer fishing and pipe recovery, wellbore departure, wellbore abandonment, and thru-tubing well intervention tools and services.
“Increased and more challenging industry activity especially in shale plays and additional government regulations for offshore drilling in the United States and the North Sea is growing demand for well intervention and abandonment services,” said Wesley Heiskell, vice president, SERVCO services. “With SERVCO services we have a global network of experts dedicated to this important service area.”
