Air Liquide unveils groundbreaking technology for the oil and gas market at Offshore Europe 2015Air Liquide will unveil its latest quad innovation for the oil and gas market on day one of Offshore Europe Conference & Exhibition 2015 in Aberdeen, UK. Quad+ is a groundbreaking technology in gas cylinder quads that will bring significant benefits to the offshore market for well services, construction and diving sectors of the oil and gas industry worldwide.
Quad+ will significantly reduce logistics costs, maximise deck space and improve the efficiency of operations due to a number of technical developments that will deliver an increased volume of gas with up to twice the capacity of current quads supplied in the industry and a much faster decant speed.
The Quad+ structure has been built to the same size footprint as existing quads, but completely redesigned using materials that will minimize corrosion in an offshore environment. Its modern design is user-friendly with an easy-to-handle ‘on/off’ lever and clearly labeled user panel. GPS technology can also be rolled out with Quad+ linked to an easily accessible track and trace web portal.
Safety is critical and Quad+ is compliant with a number of certifications that go beyond industry regulatory requirements. Among a number of safety features it includes shock-resistant design, immediate gas cut off and a built-in pressure reducer.
Jean-Baptiste Ripart, Managing Director of Air Liquide’s Oil and Gas Services worldwide Business commented: “The launch of Quad+ combines our years of knowledge as a global leader in gas supply, with a real understanding of the market. 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.”
