Fittings and valves support global instrumentation system building

11 September 2009

At Offshore Europe, Parker signed a worldwide representation agreement with the oil and gas systems integrator Proserv Group AS. Tube fittings, valves, manifolds and other components from the instrumentation products division of Parker Hannifin will become part of Proserv's preferred system building offering.

Since its foundation in 1974, Proserv has developed a global engineering business that includes specialist system building expertise in a broad range of oil and gas applications such as wellhead control, chemical injection, umbilical termination, high pressure hydraulics, and sampling and analysis instrumentation. The Norwegian-headquartered company has grown rapidly and now operates in almost every major oil and gas centre, from over 20 locations worldwide.

To enhance the efficiency of its system services, Proserv actively seeks relationships with suppliers who are able to provide premium-quality building-block components worldwide. Parker's very broad range of instrumentation fittings, valves and manifolds, and its global logistics network, proved the perfect match. In particular, Proserv was very impressed with the responsive nature of Parker's lean manufacturing operation in Barnstaple UK, which has become one of the leading suppliers into major oil and gas projects over the last decade.

In addition to Proserv's broad activity profile, the system builder's worldwide footprint was a major attraction for Parker, as it extends local support to several areas not currently covered by its own international office network, such as West Africa.

Parker's Sheldon Banks noted: "Proserv is one of the strongest brands in the industry and has an enviable global footprint. Our agreement gives us the means to better serve oil major, design house and EPC clients - bringing mutual opportunities for rapid and sustainable growth."

"We have a very large requirement for instrumentation products and expertise, and Parker's range, responsive supply chain and innovative approach gives us what we need to satisfy the ever increasing demands of our clients," added Proserv Group's CEO Arve Sem-Henriksen. "The product supply agreement we have with Parker will help us to build and deliver systems very rapidly and efficiently, and provide after-sales support with products from a globally-recognised source."
