With this aggregation, the company's activities will take place both onshore and offshore. The CEO of the Brazilian branch, Marcio Robles, reported that in the future the company will also work in production DPR, nowadays it only works in drilling. Subsea equipment and connector fabrication are on the agenda as well.

Why did Oil States buy MR Inspection?

The main objective of Oil States was to save on logistics, since to carry out the inspection and maintenance of these risers, it is necessary to unload the equipment, then embark it again, this demands a lot of cost and time. Based on that, it was decided to buy MR Inspection, as it is the only one with this kind of expertise. With the development of a technology, it is now possible to greatly reduce these costs, since this type of work can be done offshore now.
