Rolls-Royce Marine has received a drilling fluid and well control system from Aker Solutions unit STEP Offshore for use on the Yme field in the North Sea.

STEP Offshore delivered an ultra compact, skid-mounted system for drilling fluid circulation and well control.

The system will monitor drilling fluid volume in the well by the dual trip tank system, route drilling fluid from seawater pumps or a water injection system to a standpipe, trip tank system or choke and kill manifold.

The system is designed for a light work-over unit, with easy transportation capability to and from the well-head platform, along with easy hook-up to the work-over unit for well intervention operations in drilled and completed wells.

The system includes trip tanks, remote controlled valves, a choke and kill manifold, an HPU and a control system.
