When it comes to fossil fuel extraction, flow control is crucial in order to maximize the final quantity produced. That is the reason why each site requires high performance control technologies and heavy duty devices so as to ensure safe and efficient extraction of oil or gas. BERNARD CONTROLS has kept these requirements in mind when designing its solutions for Oil & Gas wells and plateforms.
- High Duty Modulating
- Wide range of performing motors featuring the S4 duty rating
- Adapted to most environments (cold, hot, corrosive, abrasive...)
Security is critical at all stages of the oil or gas production cycle. However, transport requires specific attention as it implies kilometers of pipelines going across fields, deserts, seas... until these reach storage or distribution facilities.
It is thus not always easy to quickly detect, evaluate and solve a problem when it happens in a remote or hardly accessible area. BERNARD CONTROLS commits to providing intelligent actuation solutions enhancing the security level of your site, while remaining user friendly.
- Powerful actuation - high starting torques
- Accurate information (absolute torque and position sensors, continuous monitoring...)
Relying on decades of experience working on Oil & Gas projects, BERNARD CONTROLS has developed solutions for the most demanding applications, including all process applications - refining, recompression, liquefaction, regasification...
- Preventative maintenance
- Fire protection
- Connection to Distributed Control System
BERNARD CONTROLS offers global solutions, including not only performing & reliable products, but also a complete range of services adapted to each project.
