A new gas cylinder quad for the oil and gas market will be unveiled at Offshore Europe this week.
Air Liquide – which specialises in gases, technologies and services for industry – will present its Quad+ technology for the well services, construction and diving sectors.
Quad+ will deliver an increased volume of gas with up to twice the capacity of current quads supplied in the industry and at a much faster decant speed, its makers claim.
It has been built to the same size footprint as existing quads, but completely redesigned using corrosion-resistant materials in an offshore environment. GPS technology can also be used and linked to a track and trace web portal.
Quad+ is compliant with a number of certifications that exceed industry regulatory requirements. It includes shock-resistant design, immediate gas cut off and a built-in pressure reducer.
Managing director Jean-Baptiste Ripart, of Air Liquide’s oil and gas services worldwide, said: “As a dedicated business for offshore oil and gas services we have gone to extra lengths to ensure that Quad+ goes beyond minimum industry safety requirements and responds to a need for the industry to deliver improved performance and efficiencies across all operations.”
Air Liquide will be exhibiting at stand 3D91 at Offshore Europe 2015.
