Offshore Valve Service - Improving Reliability & Performance

ControlWorx can help improve reliability and performance of your equipment across the Gulf of Mexico. Our experience, record keeping, and dedication to detail are proven to be effective.

Our team has heard and understood our customers’ requests to have multi-skilled, multi-crafted technicians. Bunk space is a premium and we understand that. We have met this challenge.

The skills of our technicians are directly related to our success. Our technicians are highly skilled and trained persons on a variety of equipment. This equipment starts with instrumentation, controls and control valves, to pressure safety valves and then to greasing / flushing and mechanical, of your production valves. Our best practice is to work from higher skilled requirements through to lower skilled devices, not the other way around. In other words, we don’t use valve greasing labor to check out, calibrate and repair instrumentation, controls and control valves.

All repairs and PSV testing data are documented electronically and can be stored on an on-line database accessible by your personnel for viewing and government regulation compliance. This allows for better tracking of work performed and changes made as well as documentation for work order history and future planning.

Testing and Repairing of Pressure Relief Valves
ControlWorx holds a VR (Valve Repair) certificate of Authorization by the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors. Technicians attend recurring training by an accredited Testing / Repair Firm on all makes / models of Pilot / Spring Operated Relief Valves. Only OEM Procedures are followed to conduct any troubleshooting, testing, repairs, or replacements off / onshore. We have an online system available that maintains PSV records for government reporting accessibility, and allows for ease of searching criteria for maintenance planning. All testing and repairs are documented on to an electronic spread sheet. All tools and equipment are routinely maintained and documented to assure optimum performance.

   

 

 
Shafer Repair factory trained technicians will repair or upgrade your actuators correctly the first time! Our Service Centers are factory trained to Shafer’s rigid standards. The service technicians are knowledgeable about Shafer’s equipment and able to provide advice on upgrade or repair of your Shafer equipment

Acoustical Emissions Leak Detection that can accurately detect leakage across a closed valve under pressure while in operation. This service can validate repairs and greasing on critical valves while the greasing and actuator set up is being performed. We have found that a very high percentage of leakage on actuated ball valves is improper ball alignment. This service can alleviate this concern.

GoM Valve Asset Management can provide a trained onsite dedicated resource for system documentation, work coordination, failure analysis, scheduling of activities, spare parts management and ROI. This Valve Asset Manager works hand-in-glove with customers to ensure the program effectiveness and success. This service is evergreen and will change with your ever-changing goals. It can help to improve efficiency by helping you to evaluate, plan and manage your operation.

Predictive and Preventative Maintenance Services starts with discussing/planning in order to build a valve maintenance program. We work with our customers to create a list of Control-Production Valves, Actuators, Controllers, etc. in need of “Corrective Actions.” This should include anything from Grease Fitting Replacement to calibrating positioners, and everything in between.

We work closely with your team to prioritize and repair all high-impact, critical items at the first opportunity. We then work to accomplish these goals with a focus on safety, reliability and relieving chronic issues through engineering and technology. This is, by far, the optimum scenario. Once the performance of equipment starts to degrade from the baseline, maintenance is coordinated and scheduled. This allows for the lowest total life cycle cost repairs to be performed before a catastrophic failure. The process media lost and variability introduced on the system is an expense that is hard to quantify over a time-based maintenance schedule.
