Sandvik to showcase latest tube products at Adipec

ABU DHABI, November 12, 2017

Sweden-based Sandvik will be showcasing its wide range of tube products at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (Adipec) 2017, which opens tomorrow (November 13), in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The event will be held at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and will run until November 16.

These include hydraulic and instrumentation tubing, heat exchanger and high temperature tubing, control lines, umbilicals and OCTG tubing, said a statement from the company.

Sandvik, a developer and producer of advanced stainless steels, special alloys, titanium and other high-performance materials, has seen double digit growth in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region over the past three years, it said.

Earlier this year, the company established its regional oil and gas headquarters in Dubai, UAE, to increase delivery of local services and products for customers, it added.

In addition, there have been increased activities in Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia, the Eastern Mediterranean, North Africa and Nigeria where the company secured a significant project to supply oil and gas control and chemical injection lines.

The order saw Sandvik providing approximately 100,000 ft of control and chemical injection lines (flatpacks) for a deepwater project offshore Nigeria via its recently opened facility in Brazil, it added.

The lines were supplied using Alloy 825, an industry standard material with high mechanical strength and corrosion-resistant properties that are cost-efficient. The lines can normally take up to 16 weeks to be delivered, but having materials in stock meant Sandvik was able to cut the delivery time to five weeks from placement of the order.

Phil Cherrie, regional sales and marketing director, oil and gas, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Sandvik, said: “Africa is one of the focus markets for our geographical expansion this year. While we’ve been active in EMEA for over 30 years, we are now seeing increasing activities and huge potential for the oil and gas industry in this part of the world.”

“We see growth opportunities to further expand supply of our oil and gas product portfolio, particularly our range of control and chemical injection lines, which are designed for the challenging conditions of the African deepwater subsea environment,” he said.

“The project win in Nigeria showcases our commitment to the market, and we will continue to work together with our customers to provide end-to-end capabilities including in-house encapsulation, flushing, filling, pressure testing as well as services that enable companies to go further with our high-performance materials,” he added.
James Doughty, regional sales director, tube core and standard, Mena, Sandvik, said: “As the world’s economy gradually recovers from uncertain oil prices, industry players are now looking for solutions that would enable them to identify and fulfil new opportunities.”

“At Sandvik, we are seeing more customers in various industries exploring cost-effective ways to upgrade existing systems. We look forward to showcasing our high-performance tubular materials to our industry peers at Adipec,” he added.

Sandvik’s hydraulic and instrumentation tubes are optimised for hardness allowing for easy, reliable bending and consistent quality. Since 1980, over 100 million meters of H&I seamless stainless tubing have been supplied to customers worldwide.

The company’s oil and gas offerings include control lines that are highly resistant to pressure, high temperature and adverse conditions; umbilical tubes with high corrosion resistance and excellent mechanical properties to cope with extremely adverse conditions; and downhole casing and production tubing (OCTG) that can cope with aggressive environments found in sour wells.

Having produced steel products for over 150 years, Sandvik possesses the expertise to contribute to customers’ productivity, reliability, and cost efficiency while often reducing environmental impact.

The company has over 50 years of advanced technical expertise and geographical experience in the oil and gas industry, having established itself as a committed supplier of advanced materials technology combined with a focus on providing customer-centric additional services.

This includes offering swift and fuss-free solutions facilitated through an extensive inventory of stock, quick processing time, customisation for the customers’ own reels and direct delivery to the site, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
