As the demand for energy grows, the pressure to go deeper increases. With a surge in subsea field developments and a focus on deepwater oil and gas exploration, the stage is set for the advancement of cutting-edge Subsea Umbilical, Risers & Flowlines (SURF) systems capable of extracting hydrocarbons from challenging deepwater environments.

According to recent projections, the global SURF market is poised to exceed US$10.19 billion by 2024, with significant growth anticipated in the years ahead.

The importance of trade shows for the energy industry

But why are trade shows like the Offshore Technology Conference Asia (OTC Asia) – which just happened in February – so crucial? Considering Kuala Lumpur as the hub for Oil & Gas activities in the region, OTC Asia was a platform that allowed us to meet with our customers and partners, make meaningful connections, and discuss opportunities that drive industry innovation.

At OTC Asia, we found ourselves surrounded by exhibitors from all facets of the industry, including key players such as well-service companies, EPC contractors, Offshore installation companies, and operators. It was also a prime opportunity to showcase our new super-duplex SAF™ 3007 designed specifically for subsea umbilicals. This latest addition to our growing duplex family offers even better mechanical resistance, a lighter, and stronger high-pressure alternative to SAF™ 2507, the current industry standard.

With the energy industry constantly evolving and demands continuing to change, trade shows are one of the most important avenues for industry players to learn from each other and build connections. Importantly, these platforms enable meaningful partnerships that contribute to the ongoing evolution of the offshore energy landscape.

Less is more for deepwater oil & gas exploration

As the offshore industry navigates into deepwater explorations and greener energy, it faces a number of challenges. With extreme operating conditions, including high pressures and chloride-rich environments, the demand is high for specialized materials designed to withstand harsh environments, maintain performance under high stress, ensure safety, and support greater sustainability.

The SAF™ 3007 comes with superior strength, fatigue properties, and excellent corrosion resistance to deliver unparalleled performance in harsh deepwater environments. What’s more, thanks to its higher yield strength and thinner tube walls, it comes at a lower cost per meter or foot, reduces logistics costs, and energy usage. This balance of cost-effectiveness, safety, and quality makes it an ideal solution for future high-pressure and deepwater exploration demands.

We help you get there

Together with you, we are committed to advancing an offshore energy industry that is safe, efficient and sustainable. By leveraging our expertise, innovative products, and dedication to excellence, our customers are empowered to overcome challenges and achieve their goals in the dynamic landscape of deepwater exploration.

As we prepare for the future, we use 84% recycled steel and safe, sustainable production practices to meet the challenges of hot and sour wells. The result is a broad portfolio of umbilical tubing, lightweight and corrosion-resistant Downhole Casing and Production Tubing (OCTG), drilling risers, and Control Lines designed to handle the harshest offshore environments.

When we say, “We help you get there”, we are stating our commitment to advance your success – and that of the entire offshore oil and gas sector. Together we can make it happen.
