Trelleborg Selected as Oil & Gas Engineering Product of the Year Finalist
Oil & Gas Engineering announced Trelleborg as a finalists for its 1st annual Product of the Year competition for its newly developed Standardized Buoyancy Module.
Trelleborg’s Standardized Buoyancy Module (SBM) is a modular redesign of the Distributed Buoyancy Module (DBM). The SBM allows smaller elements to be stacked together, enabling customized uplift requirements as specified for each project. The modular-buoyancy segments are designed to mechanically lock around the clamp, securely attaching the assembly to the desired location on the riser. The SBM can be adjusted to operate in seawater depths from surface to 2,500 meters by adding or removing elements. The design includes synthetic feet to the bottom of the finished assembly to prevent handling damage and reduce vessel installation time.
Significant innovation and advancement in technologies and best practices introduced within the past year into the oil and gas industry are recognized by means of our 1st annual Product of the Year awards. Companies submitted new and improved products introduced between Jan. 1, 2016, and July 31, 2017, to be judged. Below are the finalists in each of the three categories. It is now up to Oil & Gas Engineering readers to determine which products should receive gold, silver, or bronze recognition.
