DUBAI, UAE -- Velosi Group says it has garnered strong support for its K2 Hotwork Enclosure system, following demonstrations this summer in Abu Dhabi and Qatar.

The two presentations were attended by numerous local and international companies, including Adnoc, ConocoPhillips, Dragon Oil, Maersk Oil, Qatar Petroleum, Qatar Gas, and Zadco.

The system, currently undergoing approval by Adnoc, allows hot work to be performed safely in live process areas without the need for costly plant shutdowns, and at short notice in cases where urgent maintenance is required.

Velosi says its next step is to obtain approval for the system from operators’ HSE departments in Qatar.

The company, which provides a wide range of engineering and maintenance services to the offshore sector, has recently completed six hull preservation surveys for Transocean drilling rigs working in different regions of the world. These include the Sedco 700 in Congo, the Adriatic IIin Angola, and the Randolph Yost and Trident 12 in India.
