Dominion Gas has invested more than £2 million into the development of groundbreaking technology aimed at giving the company a competitive edge in the oilfield services sector.
The Portable Gas Trans-fill System (PGTS) is essentially a gas filling plant packaged in moveable 20ft ISO containers and has been designed to support the firm's oil and gas clients anywhere in the world. The new system comprises a set of containerised modules which when connected together allow for empty cylinders to be filled with compressed gas mixtures.
Russel Davies, Dominion's projects director, explains: "We believe that the PGTS is the first system of its kind in the world. The system is designed to operate both on and offshore in the harshest of environments and will allow us to deliver a better, more flexible service to our clients.”
Doug Crighton managing director of Dominion Gas adds: "The PGTS will play a central role in Dominion Gas' ongoing plans for global expansion. The technology will allow us to establish a presence in a new location extremely quickly without having to take on the risks associated with investing in permanent equipment and infrastructure straight away."
