Downhole tools were showcased at the exhibition booths of Burintekh Company, Packer Tools Company, Packer Company, RosTekTekhnologii Company. Tenaris – large international manufacturer and vendor of weldless and welded steel pipes – presented new samples of its products. Akmash-Holding showcased its chains for coiled tubing units. Zirax Company and Mirrico Company demonstrated a wide range of oilfield chemical products.

Equipment for oil and gas services sector was showcased by Sibtechnocenter, Krasnodar Compressor Plant (Tegas), Stewart& Stevenson, Grasys, National Oilwell Varco (NOV), including Elmar and Fidmash  that are part of NOV.

Fidmash showcased A100 nitrogen vaporizing unit meant for the use together with coiled tubing equipment. This nitrogen unit converts liquid nitrogen into gaseous one and ensures supply of gaseous nitrogen in case of excessive pressure.

Specifications of the nitrogen unit:
Maximum working pressure: 69±1 MPa
Gaseous nitrogen generating capacity (normalized to atmospheric pressure conditions):  maximum – no more than 85 m3/min; minimum – at least 8.5 m3/min.

The nitrogen block can be installed on any transportation unit (full-drive chassis or semi-trailer), it has thermally insulated operator’s cabin and is equipped with the electric drive of cryogenic gate valves. During the storage period equipment is protected by roller blinds.
