Doha, Qatar, October 9, 2010 – ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, will focus on the power of integration for the oil and gas sector at Offshore Middle East. The event, which will be held in Doha between the 12th and the 14th October, will feature product displays and technology presentations from ABB technical experts who will stress the importance of technology integration for today’s oil and gas companies.
At Offshore Middle East stand 201, ABB will host solutions that provide oil and gas companies with a complete integrated solution to manage their operations, including ABB’s range of analyzers, instrumentation solutions, drives, motors, and low-voltage equipment for the oil and gas sector.
Visitors to ABB’s stand will be able to experience the latest Extended Operator Workplace (EOW) for ABB’s System 800xA automation platform. ABB’s EOW provides operators with a fully interactive overview of each and every process in any oil and gas facility, synchronizes all process data (including closed-circuit television) into one interface in real time, and enables users to configure the workplace to their exact needs.
“Our customers in the oil and gas industry have told us that they are looking for solutions that simplify their business, solutions that optimize production and that reduce costs. The power of integration allows oil and gas companies to achieve these aims, and that’s why we’ve brought these solutions to Qatar to display them at Offshore Middle East,” said Bjarne André Asheim, Local Process Automation Division Manager for ABB in Qatar.
At the show, ABB’s oil and gas experts from the Middle East and Europe will be on hand at the stand to answer technical queries and demonstrate the full capabilities of the EOW and others solutions on display.
“We’ve enjoyed relationships with oil and gas producers for over fifty years in the Middle East region, and we will continue to invest in our local presence to support our customers in terms of technology that supports their business,” concluded Asheim.
