Corporate biography

From its inception in 1980 Maritime Stress Contracting Limited was immediatly involved in the offshore, pulp -and-paper, generating stations, heavy water and petrochemical industries.

The company was involved early in work on the heavy-water plants at Point Tupper and Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, and remained involved for a number of years. Work at these sites was to Nuclear Codes.

For a number of years, the company served as the prime contractor to the Imperial Oil Refinery in Dartmouth, NS, and carried out two of the largest shutdows at the plant.

When drilling began off the East Coast in the early 80's, the company moved quickly to develop expertise in the offshore sector, and completed 1000 drill casings (2000 welds) for Shell Oil contractor Stangate. Welds were Vetco 4130 connectors welded to X-52 casings. Sizes were 18-inch, 20-inch, 24-inch, 30-inch, and 36-inch. All stress relieving was completed eight hours after the last weld was made.

The company has had extensive involvement in drill rig modification and maintenance. Rigs included the Bow Drill 1, 2, and 3, Zapata Scotian, Sedco 706 and 709, John Shaw, Rowan Juneau and Labrador 1. Maritime Stress also carried out post-weld treatment on the Panuke J-89 pruduction platform.

Maritime Stress carried out all post-weld heat treatments on fabrications by M&M Fabricators for the gravity-based production platform for the Hibernia oil field.
