Sealing Technology Specialists Share Best Practice with Middle East Engineers

Flexitallic, the global market leader in the manufacture and supply of specialist sealing products and services, has completed a successful tour of the Middle East, which saw engineers travel from across the region to attend.  

The company, which has manufacturing facilities in Ras Al Kaimah in the United Arab Emirates and on the Dammam to Jubail Highway in Saudi Arabia visited Qatar, Oman and the UAE to deliver a series of workshops and presentations highlighting sealing technology issues surrounding corrosion, insulation and heat exchangers.

Led by Flexitallic Applications Engineering Manager Dene Halkyard and Academy of Joint Integrity Director Alex Lattimer and supported by its UAE Commercial Director, Sharon Darbyshire and Eastern Hemisphere Sales Director, Phil Kelshaw, the presentations that took place between 23 February and 3 March 2014 were very well attended. 

The presentations were delivered to over 300 engineers at 7 separate sessions across the region and the team discussed key joint integrity and sealing issues utilising a range of specialist products to demonstrate the developments in technology that have been made to support the ever-increasing operational and safety requirements of on and offshore oil & gas facilities.

The importance of continual education and training to improve competencies and safety standards were at the heart of the workshops.  Flexitallic supports the development of skills in the sealing industry through its Academy of Joint Integrity, which is Energy Institute approved training provider and delivers Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) mechanical joint integrity programmes.   

Phil Kelshaw, Eastern Hemisphere Sales Director, said:

“It was great to see so many people in attendance at the events. The tour was clearly a success and saw engineers travel a considerable distance to be there.

“Engineers in the UAE, Oman and Qatar are at the forefront of the oil & gas sector and we want to work closely with them to drive the development of sealing technology and innovation.

“The events provided a great opportunity to discuss the latest technological developments and share our commitment for delivering best practice across the sectors in which we operate.”
