Cameron Acquires Subsea Technology Provider

Cameron has acquired DES Operations Limited, an Aberdeen, UK-based supplier of production enhancement technology for the oil and gas industry.

The acquisition provides Cameron with DES' unique MARS (Multiple Application Re-injection System) technology, which enables the installation of multiple processing technologies directly onto the subsea completion.

Since incorporating in 1999, DES has enjoyed global success with its MARS and POSSibilities technologies. Several major operators, including BP and Shell, have incorporated these products to optimize production from both new and existing fields.

MARS, which has been described as "the equivalent of a USB port on a subsea completion," has been used in various major international projects to incorporate subsea processing technologies into these developments.

DES is expected to provide Cameron increased capability to support customers by simplifying subsea processing for both on and off the wellhead applications.

Cameron is a leading provider of flow equipment products, systems and services to worldwide oil, gas and process industries.
