Electro-Flow Secures $1 Million in Brazilian Contracts

Electro-Flow Controls, a leading designer and manufacturer of Instrumentation, Monitoring and Control Systems for the oil and gas industry, has secured over $1 million worth of Brazilian contracts.

EFC's success has continued to grow since Brazil Offshore 2005 after a contract was won as a direct result of the show. The company's latest contract is with local Drilling Contractor Queiroz Galvao Oleo e Gas (QGOG). The contract, worth a six figure sum, included two orders for Electro-Flow Control's Choke Control Systems, part of the firm's Well Control Instrumentation.

EFC has also met the Brazilian requirements of Pride International Inc. on its Pride South Atlantic offshore rig, through delivery of a BOP Control Panel and Ballast Control System .

Ted Littlechild, sales director, said: "We are delighted with this large group of contract wins in Brazil. Electro-Flow Controls is committed to the Brazilian market and the opportunities it offers - we look forward to building further relationships during the show this year.

"Our Well Control Instrumentation has been welcomed by many local companies, it meets exacting Brazilian Operator specifications and standards, and offers cost-effective and time-saving technology that can be easily integrated with existing frameworks. We believe success lies in our innovations and understanding of the Brazilian market and its requirements."

Tony Hogg, director of Subsea Systems, Pride International, commented "Electro-Flow Controls' BOP control panel upgrades commissioned for our semi-subs in Brazil and West Africa meet Pride's operational specifications. We have a good working history with EFC and have been very satisfied."

Electro-Flow Controls showcased its technology during Brazil Offshore 2007 – products included Fine scale Gauges (FSG), Liquid Seal Monitor (LSM) and 556/558 Zone 1 Camera Pan/Tilt Assembly. There was also an ongoing software demonstration of its Drilling Instrumentation and the recently developed Integrated Marine Monitoring System (IMMS).
