FOX-TEK Secures Repeat Order from Major Canadian Oil/Gas Producer
Fiber Optic Systems Technology, Inc. ("FOX- TEK"), a developer and manufacturer of patented non-intrusive sensing systems, today announced a repeat order from a major Canadian oil and gas client.
Dr. Essam Zaghloul, president and CEO of FOX-TEK said, "We've just received another order of a complete remote system for a major Canadian customer. We've been asked to supply a special system adapted to an area of concern on a field bend of a six-inch pipeline. We are scheduled to install the system in February."
Sam Cauchi, Director of Sales for North America added "This installation demonstrates the flexibility of the PinPoint system and our ability to rapidly meet our customers' needs. Thanks to our new modular sleeve design, we can now accommodate non-straight sections of pipe without requiring any costly shutdowns to production."
Eric Kubian, CTO at PinPoint said, "Our customer wants us to provide information about corrosion rates and the integrity of the pipeline. Without our system, a likely option for the operator would be to halt production, shutdown the pipeline, and schedule a repair. This demonstrates our ability to increase the service life of critical operational assets. Our solution helps the customer make informed, cost-effective decisions pertaining to pipeline maintenance."
