An offshore platform is also referred to as an oil platform or oil rig: it is a lаrge structure with facilities to drill wells, extract and process oil and natural gas and export the products to shore. Depending on the circumstances, the platform may be fixed to the ocean floor, may consist of an artificial island, or may float. Remote subsea wells may also be connected to a platform by flow lines and by umbilical connections; these subsea solutions may consist of single wells or of a manifold centre for multiple wells.
With all offshore facilities, weight, size and installation considerations play an important part in the success of any facility offshore. AFF are here to assist in the supply of non-specific components requiring ‘tailored’ engineering needs where the standard piping product will not suffice. Combine this with the added supply of Pipelines and Pipe Packages covering all grades of materials (including Cladded options) consisting of Seamless Pipes, Welded Pipes, Riser Pipes, Riser Bends, Riser Flanges, Flanges, Fittings, Hanger Flanges, Swivel Flanges, Misalignment Flanges, Compact Flanges, Clamp Connectors, Ball Valves, Modular Valves, Stud Bolts in exotic materials.
