According to a survey of more than 17.000 industry professionals, the oil and gas industry is facing a skills crisis.

It is expected that the situation will get worse over the next five years, which will result in increased costs and less productivity. According to the report, engineering roles are facing the biggest skills shortage.

‘Playing catch-up’

According to the survey, half said they are worried about the impact of the latent crisis. The report found that young people were less attracted to big salaries than in the past- and instead wanted roles, which offered promotion opportunities.

Competition for engineering talent is now fierce with tech firms in particular going after the same students who would historically have flocked to oil and gas.

In-Situ Machining comes into its own when a work piece is too large or fixed in application and cannot be moved to a machine shop. Portable machines can be used in some of the most remote situations and produce equally high standards of quality and finish to that of a machine shop. Be it Pipe Cutting, Flange Facing, Milling, Drilling or Boring, the range of portable machines can be mobilised to the location at minimal notice.

High demand for our equipment

Due to high demand of our In-Situ Machining rental equipment at present, we urge you to give as much notice as possible when ordering equipment, so we can plan and supply you accordingly. Our goal is to satisfy all customers and therefore planning is paramount, thus we request to give us an advanced notice of your equipment or manpower needs.

Last week we had an assignment for a Flange Facing job (FF) with extreme tolerances. Our client wanted to reface the surface of a raised face (RF) on a motor.

Not that easy

Easy peasy lemon squeezy you would think. Well… not quite. Our client demanded tolerances that were within 3-7 thousands of an inch. To make the job even harder, the Motor pinion was unable to come out so there was no way of being able to mount an internally mounted Flange Facing Machine (FFM).

Job well done

So with a HD48, a modified One Piece Flange Facing Tool and a lot of work, Steven Wallace and Jack Thornton were able to pull it off and got within 6 thousands of an inch.

All we could say is; “Job well done guys.” considering the clients demands.

The Patriot Internationals range of pressure testing products allow our clients to confidently test open ended and flanged pipework to high pressures. With the range of Flange Weld Tester and GripTight equipment; we can test most configurations, providing a fast and highly efficient method of achieving the desired result.

Flange Weld Tester/ Internal Weld Tester

We have flange weld tester(s) for a wide range of pipe sizes ranging from ½” to 36″. All flange weld testers are checked at our on-site facilities and are ready for immediate mobilisation. We can also provide bespoke flange weld testers to meet customer requirements and special equipment for pipes or joints above 36″.

Griptight

Engineered for pressure testing open-ended pipe in applications such as down hole / wellhead piping, high-pressure steam systems and high alloy hardened materials. GripTight Test Plugs eliminate the need to weld on / cut off end caps, allowing you to self-perform pressure tests! Cutting down on testing time and additional man-hours needed for craftwork.

Pipestopper

Control the flow in your pipelines with pipe stoppers that can safely halt the flow of materials and water. Whether you need to carry out repairs to a part of the pipeline or block a flow in sewers, we offer pipe stoppers to suit every type of pipeline. From inflatable stoppers to air testing stoppers.

Precision Testing Pump

Robust precision testing pump for the pressure testing of water lines and containers up to 60 bar with very high testing standards.

Key Features:

  • A drag indicator displays the pre-set pressure so that a loss of pressure in the system can be detected easier;
  • Reliable and precise testing results: the dual-valve system (Twin Valve) enables self-testing of the pump, as well as a precise fine adjustment of the pressure;
  • Especially precise reading as needed: finely scaled (scaling 0.1 bar) pressure gauge available separately;
  • Testing hose with steel mesh prevents reading mistakes, that can happen when the hose expands during operation;
  • Type 50-S: Weather and cold-resistant steel container with DURAMANT coating;
  • Type 50-S INOX: high-quality corrosion resistant stainless steel tank.

Double Block and Bleed Test / Isolation Plug

Positively Isolate Explosive Vapours from Hot Work Areas When Performing Modifications and Repairs

Positively isolate and monitor potentially explosive vapours during hot work, then effectively hydro test the new weld connection with one tool. The dual port creates a positive pressure barrier between the seals – safely isolating the hot work from any residual upstream gases.

Lightweight aluminium/steel construction makes our Duble Block and Bleed test plug significantly lighter than other plugs on the market, often allowing operators to circumvent the use of cranes and/or other lifting devices, which can be in high demand during turnarounds. Our 8” schedule 80 plug weighs just 36lbs (16.3kg) compared to other plugs weighing in excess of 100lbs (45.4kg) of the same size.
