AnTech Ltd has responded to industry demand, with the launch of three new products within its best-in-class Wellhead Outlet range.
The Type-C Wellhead Outlet, which was designed and developed by the company for use in hazardous environments, has been on the market since 2013 and has achieved great success due to its safe and simple installation, created in compliance with API 6A, ATEX and NACE standards. In response to customer feedback, AnTech has launched two further outlets, namely: Types CB and CC. Each adaptation has been carefully designed to suit various working environments including pressure, ranging from 10 000 – 15 000 psi, temperatures from -60°C to + 160°C, whilst meeting ever-tightening budget constraints.
The Type CB and CC Wellhead Outlets provide solutions to the demands of high technical specifications and the rippling effect of the low oil price. Driven by strong customer feedback from key clients, the company has designed, tested and manufactured both variations to AnTech’s customary high standards. Both options meet API 6A and NACE certification and have been designed for applications in North America, Africa and Europe.
With the increasing demands for more data and distributed measurements, there has been a growth in the use of fibre optic cables for permanent monitoring. These solutions are only as good as the connections at surface and AnTech’s Type FC outlet has been designed specifically to meet this demand whilst maintaining the highest safety standards at a cost-effective price.
In order to meet a lower price point, AnTech has reviewed its current material costs and utilised new manufacturing processes including 3D printing. As a result, the new Type FC outlet incorporates a 3D printed smart system for handling and storing up to four fibres. The unit is suitable for operating in some of the world’s most stringent wellsite environments, as it is certified to both API 6A and NACE, additionally it can hold pressures of up to 10 000 psi.
AnTech sales manager, Tim Mitchell said:
“AnTech continues to lead the way for innovative design and customer service when it comes to wellhead outlets for permanent monitoring. We’ve worked hard to develop a range of electrical and fibre outlets in order to meet the needs of varying environments around the world, focusing on certification and, of course, a cost effective price point. We’ve listened to our customers’ requirements and as a result have developed market-driven solutions which now create a larger range of products.”
Commenting on the cost effective options, AnTech managing director, Toni Miszewski said:
“We have realised that we not only need to meet today’s demands but also look towards the future. With the current low oil price, customers are demanding our high certified products but at a lower price point. After considerable research and development, we are pleased to announce three new lower cost options, which result in a wider choice within our product lines. This will help our customers to provide safe solutions to their clients without breaking the bank.”
