Matrix Awarded New Riser Buoyancy Order | Matrix



30 Nov 2018

Matrix Composites & Engineering is pleased to announce it has been awarded a new multi-million dollar contract to supply drilling riser buoyancy to a global offshore drilling contractor headquartered in the United States.

The order is to replace ultra deep water modules on two existing drillships and is scheduled for completion and delivery to the US in the coming June half of FY19.

Commenting on the award of the order, Matrix Chief Executive Officer Aaron Begley said the Company is seeing a pick-up in the oil and gas sector.

“This is Matrix’s biggest riser buoyancy order in over three years and a positive indication that the oil and gas sector is recovering. We are starting to see more activity, with increasing levels of inbound enquires for both our traditional drilling riser buoyancy product as well as quotations for oil and gas production, maintenance and rectification jobs,” Mr Begley said.

This new order follows on from six other riser buoyancy related orders Matrix has received since June 2018 totalling approximately A$5 million.
