OTC 2016: AFGlobal develops riser gas handling system

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – AFGlobal Corp. has won an OTC Spotlight Award for the riser gas handling system.

It features a unique, purpose-built design that offers the simplicity, flexibility, and reliability required to efficiently mitigate gas for dynamically positioned/moored rigs.

The RGH system handles retrofits and newbuilds using specialty riser joints and equipment—all of which are transparent to rig processes. 

The company says the RGH system diverts wellbore flow away from the rig floor for safer and more efficient operations. It can enable a controlled process for removing gas from the riser, allowing larger volumes of gas to be handled safely for longer periods of time. The system also reduces mud loss.

AFGlobal is exhibiting at booth #4709.
