Hot Tapping & Plugging
Our unique range of specialist hot tapping equipment enables a connection to be made to a piping system or a vessel without shutdown or interruption to production.
Hot Taps can be performed safely on most types of pipes, ranging from carbon steel to GRE. They can be carried out on systems containing oil, gas, fuel, steam, water and many other line mediums with pressures up to 1000 PSIG @ 100℉
Technical valuation is a trading discipline employed to evaluate investments and identify trading opportunities by analyzing statistical trends gathered from trading activity, such as price movement and volume.
It is normal for Oil Producing Companies to demand from their contractors a valuation certificate issued by an independent Inspector like Starbest for all machines and equipment they intend to use on their site. When we are mandated by any company to offer this service on their behalf, a technical evaluation of all the machines to be involved in the contract is conducted.
A complete technical evaluation can be carried out on machines like Cranes Compressor, Generators, and Welding Machines etc.
We have direct relationship with Leading Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers for all kinds of products and parts and maintain a strong procurement and supply chain management network that helps our clients get full value. We work closely with Manufacturers and Suppliers to avoid waste and boost productivity and to constantly address the ever-increasing cost pressure in the market place.
We also consider the competitive situation to expand our supplier’s portfolio by using transparent and fair auction to award contracts to the best performing bidder.
Pressure Testing & Leak Detection Test
It is necessary to regularly Pressure Test the air receiver tank, surface tank, underground tanks, LPG Vessels and associated pipeline and equipment as recommended by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR). Pressure testing enables the identification of leaking Tanks and pipeline. We also undertake repairs and installation for LPG and associated equipment.
We offer mobile Auto – sampling equipment to clients on hire to assist and sellers and ship operators to obtain reliable and representative samples during loading or discharge of oil cargoes.
It is generally accepted that physically obtained composite samples from ships tanks underestimate the true BS &W and density value.
The Auto-sampler allows continuous Flow Proportional sampling at the shipboard manifold that is unbiased and accurate.
