URS develops Mattress Recovery Tool



Utility ROV Services (URS) has developed a new Mattress Recovery Tool (MRT) for the oil and gas decommissioning market.

The tool has been designed to recover concrete mattresses that have been installed extensively in oil and gas fields to protect subsea piping.
URS started developing the tool in response to challenges identified by Decom North Sea around the safe and efficient recovery of some 40,000 concrete mattresses in use throughout the North Sea.

The MRT will be deployed from the company's UTROV system; a remotely operated tool carrier which is suspended from a surface vessel via a load bearing umbilical.
URS completed a series of equipment trials at the Subsea Protection Systems facility in Dundee and expects the tool to be deployed on the first decommissioning project early next year.

The addition of the MRT to the company's technology portfolio comes just a few months after URS announced a US$7.39 million investment in new equipment for the energy industry.
