Shepherd Offshore Comments:

At Shepherd Offshore we pride ourselves on being able to cover a wide gamut of works and frequently provide fabrication services to our clients. On this occasion we provided reel modifications to Technip FMC Umbilicals Ltd. Our teams removed splitters and hardware, changed out the reel configuration, welding and burning off to alter reels for new umbilical. We have been known to change the diameter of the belly in the past, no job is too big or small for our team of expert fabricators.
