Fo­rum AMC awarded se­ries of con­tracts for buck­ing unit

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PETROCHEMICAL -

Within just one month Fo­rum En­ergy Tech­nolo­gies’ AMC En­gi­neer­ing prod­uct line has been awarded sig­nif­i­cant new or­ders worth mil­lions of USD.

The mul­ti­ple or­ders are for the man­u­fac­ture and sup­ply of its in­dus­try-lead­ing fully ro­ta­tional torque (RT) buck­ing unit with the first de­liv­ery sched­uled this quar­ter. The units have been pur­chased by three of the largest multi­na­tional oil ser­vice com­pa­nies and will en­able im­proved and in­creased tool make up ca­pa­bil­i­ties at lo­ca­tions in the Middle East, South Amer­ica and Caspian re­gions, says Fo­rum.

The RT buck­ing ma­chine (RT) is a self-con­tained, free-stand­ing hy­drauli­cally pow­ered unit de­signed for fast and ac­cu­rate make up and break out of pre­mium and reg­u­lar threaded con­nec­tions for tubu­lar equip­ment up to a max­i­mum torque of 200,000 foot-pounds (ft lbs).

Plant man­ager at Fo­rum AMC En­gi­neer­ing, Dar­ren Bragg, said: “To win a se­ries of or­ders from a num­ber of lead­ing in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies is a ma­jor en­dorse­ment of our prod­ucts and our Aberdeen-based man­u­fac­tur­ing and ex­port ca­pa­bil­i­ties, par­tic­u­larly in the cur­rent chal­leng­ing mar­ket con­di­tions.

“It also demon­strates the strong re­la­tion­ships we have built with our cus­tomers as well as in­tro­duc­ing a new cus­tomer to our equip­ment. To con­tinue to win th­ese large cap­i­tal in­vest­ments is great recog­ni­tion for our team ef­fort and re­in­forces a strong and en­cour­ag­ing start for 2016.

“We un­der­stand more than ever that bud­get is hard to come by and that, as part of this, un­der­stand­ing our cus­tomers’ re­quire­ments and de­liv­er­ing so­lu­tions on time, on bud­get is paramount. Choos­ing Fo­rum’s equip­ment at a time when ev­ery bud­get item is be­ing es­pe­cially scru­ti­nised by com­pa­nies is a tes­ta­ment to the con­fi­dence in the re­li­a­bil­ity of our equip­ment.”

Fo­rum also an­nounced that from Jan­uary, the man­u­fac­ture of the com­pany’s PQuip Mud Bucket prod­uct will be trans­ferred to the Fo­rum AMC fa­cil­ity. This joins the Tautwire prod­uct line that was moved to the Aberdeen lo­ca­tion ear­lier in 2015. This fur­ther re­in­forces the con­tin­ued recog­ni­tion of the skills and ex­pe­ri­ence that the team at Fo­rum’s AMC fa­cil­ity pro­vides.
