Follow Blue Manta International Ltd on :
Ever since the pandemic knocked down almost every industry to its knees, organisations have been trying to get back on their feet by rethinking their strategies. While this is true for every industry and oilfield companies are no exception. The unexpected nature of lockdowns and the consequent shutdowns have caused significant disruptions in the equipment supply chain, making it extremely challenging for enterprises to restart their ‘business engines.’
In this scenario, an international oil and gas service company—Blue Manta International Limited (Blue Manta)—has positioned itself as an anchor for struggling oilfield companies, helping them re-establish their broken equipment sourcing links. As the only company supplying the complete package of installation equipment, Blue Manta is freeing oilfield companies from the inconvenience of being tied to countless suppliers. “This sets us apart from our competitors and means that our clients do not have the inconvenience of having to use a large number of different suppliers to source the necessary equipment,” says Neil Hardie, Director, Blue Manta International Limited. He further mentions that in addition to its standard off-the-shelf items, the company also works with its clients to create bespoke equipment and packages that meet their exact requirements.
Meeting Every Oilfield Need under One Roof
As a privately owned international oil and gas service company, Blue Manta International Limited supplies upper and lower completion kits, primarily on a rental basis, which includes spooling units, baskets, and containers, all of which are designed and manufactured to meet DNS 2.7-1 and EN 12079 standards. The company also supplies pressure test equipment, including high-pressure pump units complete with chart recorders, manifolds, hoses, and other associated accessories that are manufactured, maintained, and calibrated according to the relevant industry standards.
The company supplies the installation kit for deploying assorted lines such as control lines, ESP cables, and electric lines on a rental basis. This also includes spooling units, sheave wheels, cargo baskets, and workshop containers, all of which fall under the Blue Manta International Limited’s superior 9001 accredited Quality Management System. With its roots penetrating all across the globe, Blue Manta brings a wide variety of expertise to the table that helps it to support clients across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, South America, and Asia.
Diving Deep into the Unprecedented Solutions
To understand how Blue Manta brings value to clients’ propositions, let us delve deeper into its extensive product line. To begin with, the company’s portable pressure test units are available in various sizes and ratings supplied with/without a circular Chart Recorder incorporated, wherein it comprises of a typically installed air-driven liquid pump capable of handling various pressures, volumes, and fluids. Piped and mounted in a boxed section stainless steel frame with colour-coded mimic panels, Blue Manta’s pump units are explicitly designed to handle high-pressure hoses and manifolds. nVision Data Recorder, the company’s yet another stellar product, provides accurate field pressure calibrator records and presents data graphically across a 255*160-pixel display giving customers the ability to examine data on screen without a PC. The robust recorder compares pressure on for leak and static tests, monitors, and even downloads data from an ongoing test to a system without interrupting recording.
This sets us apart from our competitors and means that our clients do not have the inconvenience of having to use a large number of different suppliers to source the necessary equipment
Furthermore, it even allows clients to create reports in easy-to-read Excel spreadsheet format and readily view saved data. In addition to these, Blue Manta also offers a comprehensive collection of fittings, namely Autoclave, Butech, and Parker A-Loc, for use in pressure-related activities, capable of standing up to harsh environments and severe applications. Either made of stainless steel, monel, hastelloy, incoloy, and iconel, these fittings come individually bagged and sealed with complete traceability numbers. The company also supplies a large range of gauges, from 0 to 30,000 psi, in either 2”, 4”, 6” or 12” and either glysterine filled or empty. It has a full range of connections, including front, back and panel-mounted, bottom entry, or back entry.
Notably, Blue Manta’s Portable Data Loggers are extremely useful when it comes to offshore purposes. The company’s efficacious Offshore Data Loggers consists of an industrial computer, data acquisition electronics, and batteries housed in a sealed IP65 plastic ‘Peli’ carry case to fight the harsh state-of-the-art computer brightness conditions. With a 7” LED display providing a clear display of digital pressure readings, the push button switches using the five connectors allow for the software to be set up simply using five connectors for attaching the sensors, charger, memory stick, and desktop/laptop connection. To that end, the company offers a wide range of in-house services like design and engineering to suit client equipment requirements, fabrication and manufacturing of standard product lines, service inspection/reporting, maintenance repair and certification of client-owned equipment, and others to complement its product lines. The company also supplies Sheave Wheels–ideal for directing Control Line from the Spooling Unit into the Wel––and four different types of spreader beams to complement its sheave wheels that can take up to five sheaves at once making the most out of a single hanging point.
Apart from the high-pressure equipment, Blue Manta’s Spooling Units have quite created the stir. Ideal for running Control Line into the Well, these units operate by creating back tension which stops the spool from free-running and keeps the line tight. Originally manufactured and designed for a client in Norway, these spooling units are in accordance with DNVGL-ST-E271 2, LRCCS, and BS EN ISO 10855 standards and fully guarded to meet PUWER Regulations. Also, the company’s spooling units each have a capacity for 2 drums of up to 50” diameter and 20” width, which drastically reduces the footprint and handing requirements onboard the rig. Available in different sizes, these units come with various types of motors to suit all sizes and weights of spools. In addition to standard off-the-shelf items, the company jointly works with its customers to create bespoke equipment and packages that meet their exact requirements.
Leading Customers to Operational Optimisation
Blue Manta’s highly proficient team also offers consultancy services in disparate domains like servicing and maintenance calibration, fluid flushing and analysis, fabrication and welding, water jet cutting, machine shop, transport and storage, and others. Utilising their technical know-how, the company’s skilled technicians calibrate mechanical, electrical, and pressure equipment–whether owned by Blue Manta or the customer–and repair critical parts, including pump systems, air units, and hydraulic components. Available 24/7 both on and off-site, the company’s consultancy department also provides training to clients’ workforce to make them well-equipped with calibration aspects. At the outset, Blue Manta’s trained technicians also carry out successful flushing and certification of contamination levels to NAS 1638 and ISO 4406 standards using a binocular microscope or automatic particle count apparatus.
Moving forward, the company will continually develop new products through its leading-edge reverse engineering capabilities and broadening the options for its clients. As a global organisation, the Blue Manta footprint is expanding across Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South America. Moreover, with a storage base in Norway and a sales and service based in Australia, the company is looking forward to further enhance its already superior reach to the customers through intricate sourcing capabilities.
