Overview

OEM Choke Certification Strategy

Choke failures, particularly for operators with high-producing gas fields, have huge costs, as well as safety and production implications. Understanding the condition and performance of chokes as part of a proactive integrity strategy is the only way to eradicate such failures and deliver greater production uptime. Therefore, economics and performance aspects of chokes have taken on a new significance.

Deriving Operating Advantages from OEM Maintenance

An incorrect repair procedure by improperly trained technicians or the use of non-genuine parts can put choke components at serious risk. By adopting an OEM maintenance strategy, operators are able to:

  • Increase availability/reliability
  • Reduce downtime with OEM procedures, processes, and components
  • Optimize maintenance costs and improve choke life
  • Benefit from engineering support to manage changes in well conditions
  • Leverage local sales/service support
Cameron provides an unmatched approach to choke certification, incorporating these elements to keep premature failures to a minimum and potentially increase production revenues as a result of both choke reliability and availability.

Dedicated Choke Workshops

Cameron provides an all-encompassing approach to critical choke certification, including Six Sigma compliant choke workshops in facilities conveniently located near high-profile gas projects, such as in the Middle East. The choke certification infrastructure also enables gas pressure testing and breakout testing, along with indoor storage and a controlled environment for elastomers.
