GE Oil & Gas to showcase key products
Abu Dhabi, November 10, 2012
GE Oil & Gas is highlighting a full range of its advanced technology products and services at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (Adipec), the largest event for the industry in the Middle East, which opens on Sunday.
GE’s technology showcase will feature offerings from across the entire oil and gas business, including drilling & surface, global services, measurement & control, pipeline inspection services, subsea systems and turbomachinery.
The advanced technologies highlighted by GE underline the company’s commitment to further strengthen its partnerships in the oil & gas sector of the region by promoting operational efficiencies and sustainable growth.
Rami Qasem, the CEO for Mena region and Turkey said, "Continuing to grow its capabilities in the region, GE Oil & Gas is a leader in localization initiatives that meet the customers’ needs in the Middle East. Our strategy is to be a growth partner for the energy infrastructure development by understanding the needs of our customers’ in the public and private sectors, and supporting them to meet their business goals."
"Focused on driving greater efficiency and the environmentally-responsible deployment of oil & gas reserves, we are highlighting our advanced technologies at Adipec, a key event that brings together prominent industry stakeholders," he added.
The technologies displayed by GE at Adipec range from advanced turbomachinery products within the gas-to-liquid, natural gas liquefaction and gas reinjection sectors to advanced monitoring and diagnostic capabilities.
These innovative solutions confirm GE Oil & Gas’ commitment to address today’s environmental challenges while driving economic growth.
GE Oil & Gas technology and innovation leadership is particularly significant in the region in relation to the LNG industry, which is growing in importance worldwide and is driven by both economic and environmental benefits, said Qasem.
"This trend plays to the strength of GE Oil & Gas’ offerings that range from large capacity liquefaction compressor trains to Micro LNG plants. LNG is a suitable substitute to diesel for powering remote locations both for industrial and residential use."
"LNG represents a cleaner alternative to diesel for trucks and the transportation industry, enabling overall reductions in combustion emissions up to 25 per cent and in costs up to 35-40 per cent," he noted.
To help oil and gas pipeline operators improve their ability to detect coincident flaws that potentially could lead to costly pipeline failures, PII Pipeline Solutions, GE Oil & Gas and Al Shaheen joint venture, recently added its coincident feature assessment service technology to its suite of inspection software, said Qasem.
The service helps customers easily identify coincident cracks, dents, corrosion and other anomalies across multiple in-line inspection runs, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
