Prompted by the oil spill disaster in the Gulf Coast, Deltron, Inc. announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Blu Vu Deep Oil & Gas Exploration, is developing innovative rebreather equipment to prevent and contain offshore oil spills. The response comes from the company’s recognition of the critical need for solutions to improve inspection, maintenance and repair of deep-water oil and gas rigs like BP’s Deepwater Horizon.

Thus far, Deltron’s proprietary closed circuit rebreather systems enable commercial divers to reach greater depths for longer amounts of time, increase productivity while submerged and reduce decompression and recovery time. The solutions allow offshore drilling companies more comprehensive equipment inspections and thorough maintenance operations.

Since the spill, President Obama has signed an executive order establishing the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling, which will closely examine oil and gas industry operations and regulations. President Obama commented that the Commission is to “thoroughly examine the spill and its causes, so that we never face such a catastrophe again.” Given the circumstances, Deltron and Blu Vu are positioned to capitalize on the new regulations and demands.

Henry Larrucea, Deltron CEO, commented: “The BP spill and its disastrous effects on the environment and economy of the Gulf of Mexico highlight the urgent need for better deep sea maintenance and prevention solutions for oil and gas exploration and production. Our Blu Vu rebreather technology is designed to maximize dive time and diver efficiency in order to enable offshore drillers to provide better regular inspection and maintenance and fast, effective response to equipment failures, leaks and spills.”
