Oxford Flow to supply flow control technology in the Middle East

19326162324 bacefd46f2 zUK-based flow control equipment manufacturer Oxford Flow has signed a distributor agreement with GCG Engineering Service, a turnkey solutions provider, to supply pressure reducing valves and gas pressure regulators to oil, gas and water industries in the GCC

The manufacturer stated that with just one moving part, the patented valve technology is 80 per cent lighter than the incumbent valves and virtually maintenance-free, which significantly reduces ongoing personnel and equipment costs.

The multi-phase oil and gas flow control valve is operated internally with no ‘stem’ or mechanical actuator, reducing fugitive emission risks and significantly increasing reliability.

Nasir Sharif, general manager at GCG Engineering, said, “This gives GCG Engineering the opportunity to provide state-of-the-art technology to the GCC market – technology that makes a difference to the operations of our customers.”

“The fields of application are numerous as the technology is applicable to almost any mass-flow rate of pressure from very low to extremely high, for example, from breathing apparatus to deepwater oil exploration, and is scalable to any size. It certainly places us at the forefront of solution providers in the country,” he added.

The in-line flow control device can be retrofitted into existing pipework without plant modifications and can be produced in a standard pipe length.

Neil Poxon, CEO at Oxford Flow, commented, “We’re proud to partner with GCG Engineering as we make our mark in the Middle East. The GCC states are a hive of activity at the moment, particularly in the oil and gas sector. We already have a number of field trials for our oil and gas valve ongoing with major NOCs, as the ease of installation makes it a front runner in terms of safety and efficiency.”

Oxford Flow’s technology was designed and tested at the Osney Thermofluids Institute research facility at Oxford University.
