OSEA2018 concluded last week after three successful event days. Held from 27 – 29 November, the biennial event brought together around 15 000 attendees and close to 1000 exhibitors from more than 40 countries and regions to create the largest industry platform for business trade, networking, discussion and debate on the latest trends affecting the oil and gas sector.

With the sector under one roof, industry players also took this opportunity to make key announcements on exclusive partnerships, product launches and new business strategies for the Asian oil and gas market.

Partnerships inked at OSEA2018

Following Gaylin Holdings Limited’s recent acquisition of AMOS International Holdings Pte. Ltd, the combined entity launched its new name - AMOS Group Limited, at OSEA2018. Short for “All Marine Offshore Solutions”, AMOS captures the Group’s vision of becoming a leading international provider of diversified products, services and solutions to customers in the marine and offshore sectors.

Commenting on the launch of the new name, Perry Kennedy, CEO of the Group, said, “The merger of Gaylin and AMOS has created a strong combined entity, AMOS Group Limited, and we were delighted to launch this at OSEA2018. The event offered us a fantastic platform to showcase AMOS’ new identity and our combined capabilities to a large group of customers and suppliers. Our stand attracted an encouraging high volume of foot traffic from the outset. We will now play out the value of a capable and unified team, our collective value propositions, and a single streamlined network. I’m confident that our business partners will benefit from increased efficiencies and valuable economies of scale.”

At an official signing on Day 2, Franklin Offshore Holdings and Lankhorst Ropes inked an exclusive partnership to name Franklin Offshore Holdings as official authorised stockist and distributor in Singapore and Southeast Asia for Lankhorst’s specialised Dyneema slings. These slings are used in the offshore oil, gas and wind energy construction and subsea installation industries.

“The Dyneema slings use a synthetic fabric and are lighter than traditional wire rope slings,” explained David Glennie, General Manager of Franklin Offshore Holdings. “The industry is changing, and it’s all driven by safety. Today, people are looking at using synthetic slings that reduce weight, so they can lift heavier items with the cranes they have. Technology is moving ahead and our companies, Lankhorst and Franklin, also have to move ahead in the industry,” he said.

To better support marine and offshore clients in Asia and Australasia, Advanced Marine Pte Ltd and Arise Global Pte Ltd announced at OSEA2018 that they have entered into a co-operation agreement, with Arise Global’s acoustic pressure vessel testing services complementing advanced marines cylinder inspection services.

From 4Q 2018 Arise Global and Advanced Marine will be offering combined services for inspection of gas kellies, pressure vessels, and gas storage cylinders. This new partnership will allow pressure vessels to be inspected in situ, while still full and pressurised. This is unlike traditional inspection methods that require the pressure vessels to be emptied for internal inspection and in some cases, removed from the diving bells to allow inspection. Additionally, the acoustic testing method will work to determine the pressure vessel integrity with restricted access to the sides of the cylinders.
