BSM Technologies awarded contract with major U.S. oil and gas service fleet

BSM Technologies Inc., a leading provider of remote monitoring, fleet management, fleet diagnostics and automated vehicle security systems,
has been awarded a contract to provide its Sentinel FM asset tracking solution to a major U.S.-based oil and gas service fleet.  For the initial implementation, BSM equipment will be installed on 300 of the approximately 4,000 vehicles the customer operates.

"The oil and gas sector has been a major focus for us and we have several installations in Canada," said Aly Rahemtulla, President and
CEO. "This key win by our direct sales force will allow us to expand this expertise into the U.S. and provides a major opportunity for
growth."

Sentinel FM is a robust asset tracking platform for real-time fleet management. Sentinel's capability to manage a diverse group of assets
while seamlessly moving between satellite and cellular networks was a key priority for the customer, which operates in remote areas and
difficult terrain. Expected benefits for the customer include improved fleet utilization, reduced maintenance costs, improved fuel management, and enhanced reporting capabilities.

"The initial installation covers less than eight percent of the customer's fleet. We believe they will consider additional installations
once we demonstrate the benefits our solution can offer," added Mr. Rahemtulla.

Another Year Older But No Wiser – Sixth Anniversary of Keystone XL Delay

Brian McGuire, president & CEO of Associated Equipment Distributors (AED), issued the following statement highlighting the sixth anniversary of TransCanada’s first application (Sept. 19, 2008) to the U.S. State Department for approval to build the Keystone XL pipeline.

“It’s becoming an unfortunate, yearly tradition for the construction equipment industry to mark the passing of this date. We’ve been stuck in idle for six long years while the Obama administration has found one reason after another to avoid approving a project that should be a no-brainer.

Ultradeep Drilling Scientifically Explores Seismogenic Zones

In an effort to better understand geologic processes occurring at tectonic plate boundaries, scientists around the world are drilling deep beneath the seafloor. Their targets are seismogenic zones 5 to 40 km [3 to 25 mi] below the Earth’s surface where devastating subduction zone earthquakes originate.

From 2003 to 2013, the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program functioned as an international marine research drilling platform dedicated to advancing scientific understanding of the Earth by monitoring and sampling subseafloor environments. By studying core samples retrieved from these zones, scientists hoped to clarify how material properties and stress fields affected fault slip, which could potentially propagate to the seabed and become tsunami-generating earthquakes.

TOPGUARD Field Amine Measurement Services Detect Low MEA Concentrations Quickly and Reliably

Baker Hughes has announced the commercial release of its TOPGUARD field amine measurement services, designed to help refiners manage corrosion risk by rapidly detecting low levels of monoethanolamine (MEA) in crude units. TOPGUARD services can detect and quantify MEA levels as low as 1 ppm.

Amine measurement typically relies on ion chromatography assessments, which, in most cases, require a day or longer to analyze results. By testing for MEA on site, Baker Hughes can rapidly provide critical data about its presence and concentration – often in as little as one hour. These results, when combined with data from the TOPGUARD corrosion risk monitor (CRM), deliver a comprehensive corrosion risk assessment that helps determine the need to mitigate MEA hydrochloride salt formation. With this evaluation, refiners can make timely adjustments to crude tower operations and implement mitigation programs to enhance operating efficiency.

GE Oil & Gas Awarded Over $300 Million Subsea Equipment Contract from Petrobras

GE Oil & Gas has announced more than $300 million contract with Petrobras for the first supply of the subsea manifold systems for Brazil’s pre-salt fields, located offshore in water depths up to 6,500 feet (2,000 meters). This award includes eight manifolds that will be designed with retrievable injection modules to allow water-alternated gas injection for up to four wells, and system integration with subsea controls.

“This contract illustrates how GE Oil & Gas has expanded its portfolio of solutions to support development of Brazil’s pre-salt fields,” said Rod Christie, CEO of Subsea Systems for GE Oil & Gas. “Our company has developed solutions that are standardized around a series of pre-approved modules to meet our customers’ specific local needs.”

Light and Power In One Tower

L20 Light Tower
L20 Light Tower

Doosan Portable Power offers a combination light tower and mobile generator with the Doosan L20. This model anchors the Doosan Portable Power lighting systems portfolio and provides a single solution for two important jobsite needs, power and light.

The L20 is ideal for mining, oil and gas exploration and a multitude of other environments where there is no reliable power source present. Traditional light towers only provide enough power for the light source. However, the L20’s 32-horsepower Mitsubishi diesel engine and 20-kilowatt generator make it the most flexible and powerful light tower in the Doosan line, with enough power to light a wide area while simultaneously providing up to 16 kilowatts of energy to power jobsite trailers, power tools, heaters and more.

A CAD representation of the new J D Neuhaus 100 metric ton Profi super silent hydraulic hoist unit.

Hoists incorporating the latest generation of super silent hydraulics have now been added to the J D Neuhaus range of high performance lifting and handling equipment. In both their Profi and EH monorail hoist ranges, units providing 75 and 100 metric ton lift capacities have been added. Where heavy loads are lifted and transported in highly restricted spaces with only minimum headroom, then a JDN ultra-low monorail hydraulic hoist range has been introduced, initially available with 50 and 100 metric ton lift capacities and designated as JDN UH 50-H and JDN UH 100-H.

All these new lifting products can be deployed as viable alternatives to air driven equipment in locations where hydraulic lines, control hydraulic systems or hydraulic aggregates form part of an existing power set-up available at a proposed location site.

Argo Expands Utilization With Universal Mounting System

ARGO owners find even more uses for their vehicles with ARGO’s load-tested Universal Mounting System (UMS). This engineered mounting system significantly increases utilization by giving operators the opportunity to quickly, easily and safely convert their ARGO and ARGO trailer from one application to another, improving utilization.

“Our UMS has greatly expanded ARGO’s capabilities,” says Bernhard Wagenknecht, ARGO’s VP Sales & Marketing. “The variety of tasks an ARGO can now complete increases its productivity and its value. Add a UMS to the vehicle itself or to an ARGO 4-wheel or 8-wheel amphibious trailer, and now it can safely transport mobile equipment and people where ever they need to be.”

New All-Electric Tube Hone Combines Servo Precision and Cycle-Automation Features with Constant Spindle Power Delivery

Sunnen’s new HTR all-electric job-shop tube hone combines servo precision and cycle-automation features with constant spindle power and 0.1 mm (0.004") stroke repeatability to efficiently hone blind bores or correct tight spots in a bore without operator intervention. Designed and equipped to hone the wide variety of parts encountered in a job shop, the machine handles bore I.D.'s up to 900 mm (35.41"). Its modular design can be configured for stroke lengths from 2.5 m to 14 m (8' to 46.2').

Critical for job-shop versatility and productivity, the HTR's 12 kW (16-hp) spindle motor, combined with a four-step gearbox, produces a constant power band through the entire speed range of 10-470 rpm for fast metal removal. The standard servo rotary tool feed can also function as a push-feed system with an optional drive shaft that converts rotary to linear motion, allowing the machine to handle the full range of Sunnen heavy-duty and two-stage tools. Tool overload monitoring ensures optimal stock removal rates, while protecting the tool and workpiece. Precision stroke position and repeatability are ensured with a servo rack-and-pinion stroking system. It drives the spindle carriage at speeds of 0.1 to 48 m/min (4" to 157' per minute) on hardened and ground ways with a 10.2 kW (13.6 hp) servomotor, giving the machine plenty of power to handle superabrasives for fast material removal.
