Subsea connector specialist SECC Oil & Gas will showcase a range of self-sealing emergency disconnect solutions at ONS, alongside its Norwegian distributor Norwegian Hose Supply.
SECC’s stand will feature its two-inch Hot Make Hot Break and Mid-Line Valved breakaways, both of which are based on a unique pressure-balanced, full-bore, external check valve design to instantly seal under full working pressure in a drive off emergency, removing the risk of pollution and protecting offshore personnel and equipment.
The company will also demonstrate a range of high-performance hot stabs and unveil its new seal change-out tool, which has been shortlisted for the ONS 2012 Innovation Awards. The ground-breaking change-out tool was designed to transform the Hot Make Hot Break connector into a permanent solution by enabling operators to replace its elastomer seals subsea.
British-based SECC shares a stand with Norwegian Hose Supply, the distributor and technical support partner it appointed earlier this year to serve customers in the Norwegain market.
“SECC’s connectors are extremely relevant in the Norwegian market where managing pollution risk is the number one concern and operators are looking for proven, DNV-qualified, high specification emergency breakaways,” says Roar Riseth, sales manager at Norwegian Hose Supply, the hoses, valves and studs specialist which forms part of Norwegian Oilfield Supply and the Hitec Products Group.
“Major investment in vessel-operated stimulation projects, which are the ideal application for this technology, is also fuelling demand from oil companies in our region.”
