LUX Assure appoints partner in Malaysia

Posted by Jenny Adams


Oil and gas technology firm, LUX Assure, has strengthened its presence in Malaysia with the appointment of a regional partner, Borneo Seaoffshore Engineering SDN BHD.

 Borneo Seaoffshore will support LUX in educating the local market on corrosion management best practice, whilst promoting its CoMic™ technology. CoMic is an on-site deployable corrosion inhibitor monitoring kit, which is used to inform better corrosion inhibitor management and to identify if the optimum level of inhibitor is being dosed.

 The effective use of CoMic means that operators can save thousands of pounds through avoiding overdosing inhibitor, or millions of pounds by ensuring enough inhibitor is pumped through pipelines to keep corrosion at bay.

 CEO at LUX Assure, Emma Perfect, said: “A report last year from MarketandMarkets identified that Asia-Pacific would be the fastest-growing market for corrosion monitoring in the period 2016 to 2021. This presents a major opportunity for LUX to integrate ourselves in-country, to assist with the most pressing corrosion challenges.

 "As a company with innovation at its heart, we want to work closely with Petronas and the wider operator network in Malaysia. Our aim is to develop new technologies which not only address their challenges and concerns, but can also be rolled out on an industry-wide basis.

 “Key to this will be working with a strong regional support network, and so we are delighted to have partnered with Borneo Seaoffshore who have the local knowledge, on-the-ground understanding and capabilities to achieve this.”

Borneo Seaoffshore's principal business is to provide integrated solutions and services to the petroleum industry, with a focus on pipeline operations and maintenance management.

Sunildeep Dhaliwal, managing director at Borneo Seaoffshore, said: “We are very pleased to be working with LUX Assure, and excited to be part of the company's journey to bring new and innovative technologies to Malaysia.

“Corrosion management is as much an issue in this country as the rest of the world, however we need to develop solutions which are suitable and adapted to the local environment. Based on LUX's global reputation, and ongoing product development efforts, we believe they are well-placed to do this job.”

This partnership builds on LUX Assure's existing footprint in Malaysia, where another agent is in place and a patent pending regarding the company's OMMICA™ technology. CoMic and OMMICA together represent a revolution in monitoring and managing difficult-to-detect chemicals in hydrocarbons, condensates and water, specifically the thermodynamic hydrate inhibitors and corrosion inhibitors used to protect oilfield assets, on and offshore. 

As part of the company's regular programme of visits to the region, LUX Assure will be exhibiting at Oil & Gas Asia in Kuala Lumpar, as part of the EIC delegation. The conference and exhibition will take place from 11-13 July, where LUX can be found on stand 5804.

LUX Assure is a UK-based company specialising in asset integrity management, developing novel chemical monitoring technologies for the oil and gas industry. The company's innovative technologies provide operators with unique solutions for monitoring difficult to detect chemicals which are widely used across the industry providing critical information to support key management decisions whilst delivering enhanced long term asset integrity management. Headquartered in Edinburgh, LUX Assure also has a network of worldwide agents.

In 2015, LUX Assure received a £2.4 million investment from Chevron Technology Ventures, ConocoPhillips Company, Statoil Technology Invest, Archangel Investors and the Scottish Investment Bank, the investment arm of Scottish Enterprise. This Investment enables further exciting development of LUX Assure's flagship technologies CoMic™ and OMMICA™, both of which represent a revolution in monitoring and managing chemicals in hydrocarbons, condensates and water.
