SIMMONS EDECO, a supplier of wellhead and valve maintenance, asset integrity solutions and onshore drilling services to the global oil and gas industry, announced the launch of its Well Life Cycle & Well Integrity Awareness Program. The new course is designed to give participants a greater understanding of the life cycle of a well, as well as the systems and processes required to maintain superior well integrity. Although it is beneficial for anyone working in the oil and gas industry, it is particularly relevant to those working in close proximity, such as production operators and offshore installation managers. Coordinators, planners and support staff involved with well maintenance and integrity activities also benefit.
Rice Engineering and Operating Ltd., through its Pipe Integrity Products Division, has extended its pipeline equipment product portfolio with the launch of WeldFit Energy Group’s pioneering pipeline equipment including extruded hot tap and line stop fittings, construction and repair products including saddles and sleeves, horizontal automated and traditional pigging systems along with custom manufactured extruded headers and manifolds.
The WeldFit line-up of products will complement Rice’s existing line of Plidco – The Pipeline Development Company’s bolted-only or back-welded pipeline repair/maintenance products, connectors and hot tapping and line plugging products. Rice is now able to offer customers rapid and dependable delivery of a full range of pipeline equipment in order to minimize customers’ costly downtime.
