AUMA is single source for Arab oil initiative

 AUMA was selected as the single source supplier of electric actuators for Qatar Petroleum de-gassing stations. Located at the Dukhan field in the Arab D block, work began in 1998 on a gas recycling initiative to enhance oil production: within two years, AUMA’s field devices for valve control were successfully installed as part of a retrofit and replacement programme.

Exploration in the Dukhan region began in 1935 and Dukhan field was the first to be discovered with oil of a commercial quantity. The field comprises three crude oil reservoirs and one un-associated gas reservoir. Crude oil output capacity equates to 335 thousand barrels per day achieved by processing 800 million cubic feet of gas daily to produce 36 thousand barrels of condensate.

Over 50 explosion-proof AUMA actuator combinations designed to aid process control at the scheme have been installed to date including multi-turn, quarter-turn actuators and controls.

Reasons for selection of AUMA as the single source supplier to replace other brand actuators at the prestigious project included expert local support and modular design for adaptability. Services provided by AUMA included a site study, installation, commissioning and training.

AUMA has a strong established track record supplying the global petrochemical industry. International support includes representation in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi.
