Continuous Circulation System

Continuous Circulation Drilling is now possible using an NOV CCS (National Oilwell Varco Continuous Circulation System) and is now commercially available from NOV. Drilling with a CCS is expected to save an average of $1million per well drilled onshore, and considerably more offshore.

The CCD minimizes and eliminates many drilling problems. It enables the drilling of otherwise undrillable wells and is significantly safer.

The CCD is now in use by Statoil, ConocoPhillips, Petrobras and has made over 2000 connections without CCS NPT (Non Production Time).See "Continuous Circulation Drilling" on our CCD document "18 benefits of CCD" for more details. You may also contact us here.

The current JIP (Joint Industry Project) to develop Continuous Circulation Drilling is sponsored by ITF (UK Government's Industry Technology Facilitator) and supported by Shell, BP, BG, Statoil, Total, ENI, Veba, CDL and Varco.

Seabed Rig

Other ongoing developments by Maris include:

Continuous Drilling Machines
Seabed Located Drilling Rigs
Seabed Power Production
Seabed Mining Machines
Open Ocean Fish Ranching

The Maris group of companies was founded in 1977 by Laurie Ayling to provide a centre and focus for Offshore and Subsea Engineering knowhow and Projects Management.

Maris are currently developing technology for the exploration and production of hydrocarbons, minerals and metals in water depths of 3,000m to 6,000m, covering half of the World's surface and deep sea fish ranching to sustain the world's fisheries.
