Press release date: May 5, 2014

Wohlen, Switzerland – With increased cost efficiencies at the forefront  for Oil & Gas operators, the 2014 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is highlighting the importance of collaboration. To combat industry-wide shrinking margins due to the rising cost of development, the conference, which is returning to Reliant Park in Houston, May 5-8, called unite Oil & Gas industry thought leaders with the theme of "Come Together". 

With the focus of collaboration in mind, Sulzer Metco, a global surface solutions provider, announces its strengthened approach to servicing Oil & Gas customers. The company recently expanded its coating technology service platform to more effectively cater to unconventional drilling operations, delivering enhanced performance and efficiency to its customers. Sulzer Metco's full range of services includes knowledge assessment, technical recommendations, installation and training, sales and after-sales support through its network of experienced sales and technical staff. The company's expert personnel are readily available via multiple Coating Solutions Centers (CSC) and its newly-established department for Technical Customer Support (TCS). Using hands-on consultation to select the optimal solutions based on part geometry, surface wear, and the geological formation being drilled, this process brings increased efficiency and reduced authority for expenditure (AFE). With numerous locations around the world, the company offers local support backed by a global knowledge network.

"OTC's focus on collaboration mirrors Sulzer Metco's newly enhanced integrated service platform that's geared towards full immersion with customers and other service equipment providers. We partner with customers through every step of the process – from initial consultation through coating selection to downhole testing," says Jamie Holt, Country Manager for Oil & Gas Applications - Middle East at Sulzer Metco. "In addition, the company advises on further process adjustments, as needed."

The broadest portfolio of coating technologies for the optimum solution Sulzer Metco's services complement the company's rapidly expanding range of technology solutions that combine unparalleled range of coating materials, technologies and expertise, from a single source. With the widest portfolio of coating solutions, this provides operators with the best coating options to maximize performance and efficiency while reducing overall AFE. The company's technologies include Thermal Spray, Laser Cladding and Plasma Transferred Arc (PTA) welding, and Thin Film processes that are designed to enhance the rate of penetration (ROP) and minimize well delivery time.

Thermal spray technologies include high-velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) coating, which is optimum for components with low-impact exposure, such as mandrels, motor rotors, bearings and pumps. Sulzer Metco also specializes in coatings for high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) environments and high-impact parts, such as drill string stabilizers. This includes laser cladding, as well as Mig and PTA welding. In particular, Sulzer Metco recently launched MetcoClad™-Systems, Laser Cladding systems that can be customized to meet individual manufacturer needs for processing a variety of component sizes, geometries and weights. As the only single-source supplier of Laser Cladding systems combining material, equipment and application know-how, Sulzer Metco offers manufacturers one point of contact for their entire Laser Cladding solution, which expedites the coating process.

"As operators are exploring more and more challenging environments, Sulzer Metco is constantly innovating coating technologies that enhance the performance and extend the service life of parts," says Holt. "The result is increased ROP and reduced non-productive time (NPT), which drives the bottom line. Our solid commitment to customer partnerships and technical collaboration goes hand-in-hand with this year's OTC theme of ‘come together'."
