Offshore staff

HOUSTON – The Helix Well Containment Group says it now can respond to well containment in water depths to 10,000 ft (3,048 m).

“Combining ultra-deep water depth capability with a 15,000 psig intervention capping stack, the HWCG consortium has the technology, expertise and resources of a diverse group of companies to respond immediately in the unlikely event that a deepwater well’s blowout preventer fails to operate as designed,” said David Coatney, HWCG’s managing director.

Coatney was named managing director in May. He has more than 35 years’ experience in oil and gas, including emergency preparedness and response.
