Chinese engineers in Norfolk
A delegation of 10 engineers from three Chinese companies have visited Norfolk for training on data acquisition and process control.
The equipment, supplied by Hoveton based Fardux, will be used by three companies, Huabei Well Testing Company, Xinjiang Well Testing Company and Yick Cheong Petrotech, in the oil exploration and extraction industry.
The country’s burgeoning economy, and its necessity to fuel the increase in industrial and commercial output with ever larger amounts of oil and gas supplies, has meant that Chinese clients have become an increasingly important part of Fardux’ business during the past two years.
Chinese oil companies have bought into foreign acreage around the globe in their quest to discover new, and develop existing, oilfields. More often than not, Chinese operating companies choose service divisions of their own state-owned companies to work with them, both domestically and on international projects.
According to Fardux MD David Mason, oil and gas exploration and production remains strong within the confines of Chinese borders, both onshore and offshore.
“Chinese markets are likely to stay strong for an extended period,” says Mason. “Fardux is confident that its recent efforts and successes in China will bode well in months and years to come.
“Fardux products have now become the new de facto standard for data acquisition and process control in China, with new companies listing Fardux products and services on their tender documents.”
Fardux provides innovative engineering design solutions for electronic data acquisition applications ass-ociated with fluid flow dynamics in the oil & gas exploration industry.
