EFC to Supply Choke Control Systems in Middle East

Electro-Flow Controls (EFC), a leading designer and manufacturer of Instrumentation, Monitoring and Control Systems for the global oil and gas industry, has completed contracts worth more than $1 million for choke control systems in the Middle East/UAE. The Company has also recently appointed an agent in Abu Dhabi to support plans to develop business in the Emirates.

EFC, which employs 50 people at its bases in Aberdeen, UK, and Houston, Texas, has designed and built eight customised choke control systems for rig upgrades in the region in the past 24 months. Work has included a recently-completed project on a Saipem jack-up for an Aramco contract.

The choke control systems incorporate some of EFC's innovative well control features such as a separate hydraulics module, Finescale Pressure Gauge set, Liquid Seal Monitor and Overboard Valve controls.

John Wheeler, Managing Director, Electro-Flow Controls, said, "EFC has developed a sophisticated range of choke controls and well control systems by working with subsea experts in some of the most demanding locations the industry is faced with.

"Our products meet the highest safety standards and EFC has developed a sound reputation for providing tailored system solutions to the global oil and gas industry. International business is critical to our success and we aim to continue to develop the work we do in the Middle East."
