ClampOn is a global supplier, and this gives us an advantage when the industry experiences a lull, as it is doing now. During the course of the last year ClampOn has continued to supply its varied product portfolio worldwide.
Despite the absence of the major new subsea projects, there are many fields that need ClampOn’s help finding the maximum sand-free production rate, or detecting when a pig has safely passed a section of pipeline. Operators are also seeing the need for our instruments to monitor changes in wall-thickness or vibration on existing structures, both topside and subsea.
There is also still drilling activity, and ClampOn’s well collision detection instruments are used on many new wells currently being drilled.
We can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and have used this quieter period to develop new products, which will be presented later this year.
The latest deliveries have been to global players such as Shell, Chevron, ConocoPhillips and Total, as well as to national oil companies such as KOC in Kuwait, PDO in Oman, Petrobel in Egypt and Sonatrach in Algeria. All this shows us we are still doing things correctly, not only with repeat orders to existing customers, but also with deliveries to new customers and operators.
