HOUSTON– AFGlobal has earned two OTC Spotlight Awards.

The first is for the active control device. This provides the prerequisite seal and diversion of annular wellbore returns using a novel, non-rotating device enabled by an actively pressurized, co-molded element.

This purpose-built device eliminates the bearings and rotating components that are a regular source of maintenance and failure in conventional rotating control devices.

The second is for the DuraStim 6,000-HP hydraulic fracturing pump. This is said to be the industry’s first variable displacement frac pump.

Built for the extreme demands of long duration, high-pressure fracturing, the pump dramatically lowers the cost of ownership, improves operational performance and creates many new safety and environmental advantages.

AFGlobal is exhibiting at booths #938 and 10715.
