AOG 2015

March 11, 2015 - March 13, 2015 Perth Convention Exhibition Centre


Visit Gates Engineering and Services at stand N26 at this year’s AOG to learn how Gates innovations can help reduce unplanned downtime on your rig.

Flexible hose assembly issues cause 47% of all downtime. Unplanned downtime caused by hydraulic hose failure is expensive but avoidable. The typical drilling rig has 553 flexible hose assemblies and one hose failure can shut down your entire drilling operation resulting in up to four hours of lost production. Don't let preventable problems with hose assemblies keep you down. 

Innovations in Hydraulic Hose

Blowout Preventer Hose: Every component of a blowout preventer control system is critical to the safety of workers, equipment, and the environment. Gates line of Black Gold® BOP hose is rated for 5,000psi constant working pressure. The fire resistant hose is designed for extreme, erratic pressures experienced in BOP control systems.

Black Gold® Choke & Kill Hoses: When the blowout preventer system is on the seafloor, Gates Black Gold® Choke and Kill hoses are used around the flexible joint. Gates Black Gold® Choke and Kill hoses are manufactured to handle up to 20 percent hydrogen sulfide gas for one hour at 93°C at working pressure.

Black Gold® Cementing Hose & 1502 Hammer Union Couplings: Gates 2” ID fully API 7K approved cementing hose is available in both 5,000 and 10,000psi working pressures. New one-piece 1502 hammer unions that complement the hose are also available. Gates Black Gold® Cementing Hoses, with integral hammer union couplings, are specially compounded for handling abrasion and corrosion.
