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
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.
