Spring/Summer - 2015

Safety first in Australia

The buzz surrounding Weak Link Bails is spreading down-under as another oil giant opts for a super-safe approach to security.

In the face of a sharp downturn in the oil industry, Australian petrochemical giant, Apache, has shown its commitment to safety with a major investment in Scan Tech AS’s Weak Link Bail (WLB) technology for its site off the coast of North Australia.

The WLB will be used, on a rental basis, for a minimum of 12 months on a five well flowback campaign (which is where product testing takes place and engineers assess the consistency of the product, how it will flow and how much water it contains). The new contract comes as a result of the success enjoyed by another oil giant which started using Scan Tech’s WLBs on another eight well flowback campaign in the region last year. 

"It is our reputation for being able to deliver a superior product which improves safety and performance in this market which has led to us picking up such a significant contract during a market downturn,"

explains Chris Stevens, managing director of Scan Tech AS.
