HOUSTON -- The Energy Industries Council (EIC) has more than 50 exhibiting companies to the UK pavilion at OTC this year, at stand 2441 - D.

The EIC will also showcase EICDataStream, its database that tracks more than 7,500 active and future projects across the energy supply chain.

The database includes details of 588 future “high-value” upstream oil and gas field projects, including the Natuna D-Alpha project offshore Indonesia; the Kurmangazy/Kulalinskly oil and gas fields in Kazakhstan; the Noxal oil field in Mexico; the Ormen Lange – Phase II project in Norway; and the Yamal Peninsula Oil and Gas developments in Russia.

EICDataStream’s analysis suggests the most active areas in the offshore sector are Europe with 321 projects and the African region with 439 projects, with 192 projects around Asia.

EIC Monitor, a quarterly industry barometer that uses EICDataStream to track all the major new projects, reveals a positive trend. Through comparing the last two quarters of 2009, the findings suggest that the total value of new projects in the upstream sector in Q4 2009 increased by 27% to $35 billion.

Most of the exhibitors at the UK Pavilion are EIC members and include: Balmoral Offshore Engineering, which provides subsea buoyancy, elastomer, and insulation products, and operates a hydrostatic test center at its headquarters in Aberdeen; Global engineering and construction contractor Foster Wheeler Energy;
Shipping and energy services company The Craig Group Land & Marine Project Engineering, which provides a range of services services including marine pipeline construction, and marine and offshore engineering services provider GL Noble Denton.

Also exhibiting are Hamworthy Combustion, which supplies modular boiler energy packages for FPSO/FSO vessels and offshore platforms; and Heatric, which designs and manufactures compact diffusion bonded heat exchangers used in gas and light hydrocarbon liquid processing and gas compression cooling.

Among the contingent of instrumentation providers are Advanced Sensors; AFL Telecommunications, a specialist in fiber-optic cabling; and Diamould, a Schlumberger company focussed on subsea and downhole interconnect products.

Dow Hyperlast will show its flow assurance solutions including process technology for the production of glass syntactic polyurethane (GSPU) in remote locations. Water treatment specialist exhibitors will include VWS Oil & Gas, a leader in sulfate removal plant design.

EIC’s head office is in London with regional offices in Billingham and Aberdeen, and overseas offices in Rio de Janeiro, Houston, Singapore, and Dubai. The Houston office offers entry into the North American market for EIC member companies through networking events, business intelligence and managed service office accommodation.
