MIOGE preview: 10 exhibitors to watch, part 2

In part two of our MIOGE Preview, we continue our world tour of international companies who will be exhibiting at the show. We’ll be taking a look at some major domestic players too - who they are, what they are selling, and what they are up to in Russia.

Read part one of our MIOGE 2017 Preview here.


Stand: B305/B306 (Gazprom Automation)
No Russian oil and gas event would be complete without Gazprom - the government-owned natural gas behemoth. Gazporm’s numbers are simply titanic. Russia’s gas giant held an estimated 36.1 trillion cubic metres of natural gas, and 3.6 billion combined tons of recoverable oil and gas resources, in 2015. Production output? A massive 418.5 billion cubic meters of natural and associated gas, 15.3 million tons of condensate and 36 million tons of oil.
2017 has been a busy year so far for Gazprom. In May, pipelaying of TurkSteam’s offshore section commenced. And, during talks with Edison and the EDG Group, the Russian firm’s new strategic partners, Gazprom revealed construction of TurkStream’s second string could boost European gas supplies by up to 15.75 billion cubic metres a year.
Gazprom's Amur Gas Processing Plant, which has been outfitted with processing equipment from Germany’s Linde Group, is close to completion too. Initial preparations for the first production facilities to come online are 95% complete. Elsewhere, over 1,100 km of the mammoth Power of Siberia pipeline in the Far East is expected to be completed by the year’s end too. 


Stand: A263
German underground drilling pioneers Herrenknecht has a long history in Russia, including work on some of its biggest oil and gas projects. Back in 2003 for example, it provide drilling machinery and services at the Neva Crossing near St. Petersburg. Here, a 775m tunnel was dug beneath the Newa River in order to lay new export pipelines. 
Since then, Herrenknecht has continued to ply its trade across Russia. Not only in the energy field, but in large scale civic engineering and infrastructure works too. During construction work at the Sochi Winter Olympics site, Herrenknecht laid 1,411m of underwater utility pipes for example.
Herrenknecht is bringing their expertise, and comprehensive portfolio of drilling machinery and technical services, to the MIOGE 2017.


FLUIDEX is the Spanish Association of Fluid Handling Equipment Exporters. It is a private, non-profit organisation, aimed at promoting companies in this flourishing Spanish industrial sector on a global stage. 
Currently, FLUIDEX represents 90 companies.  Each individual company works with a different range of products - varying from valves and actuators, to pipes, pipe fittings, filters, compressors, expansion joints, and more.
Russo-Spanish energy cooperation is expected to take off with the launch of the Yamal LNG Terminal in 2018. Post-launch, Spain will receive 2.5 million tons of LNG a year from Yamal, according Novatek CEO Leonid Mikhelson - a deal worth nearly $40 billion.
 “After Yamal LNG is launched Spain will become a big importer of Russian liquefied natural gas. We see huge potential in the development of LNG cooperation,” he said.”

NewTech Services

Russian natives NewTech Services are relative newcomers, first founded in 2009. Since then, they have been busy, and have quickly emerged as one of Russia’s hottest young oil and gas services companies. 
Some of its biggest projects include drilling a 1,000m long horizontal hole for Tomskneft at Well 8, Pad 1, at Karasevskoye field in 2013 - without the use of any rotary drive systems. In the same year, Gazprom enlisted NewTech for its horizontal drilling services at the Novoportov field. 
NewTech Services enjoys an international reach, with offices in the US and Venezuela, and CIS countries. It leased MVD systems to US operators in 2013, running at an average incident free operational time of 1,224 hours.

OMK Steel

Stand: B304
February 2017 saw OMK Steel crowned as “Russia’s Best Pipe Manufacturer” for the fourth time in five years. This comes after a year of successful projects with the big boys of Russian energy: Gazprom, Trasneft, LUKOIL, Rosneft (andmor besides).
OMK’s project list reads like a directory of Russia’s biggest oil and gas pipelines. It has provided pipes for developments like NordStream, the Power of Siberia, and Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean streams. It seems that all Russian gas and oil exports will have passed down an OMK pipe at some point on their journey out of the country.
2017 brings more activity for OMK. It is lining up more work with Gazprom, again big projects, like TurkStream and NordStream-2. It is also expanding its production base to cope with demand. The Vyska Steel Works in Nizhny Novgorod will be able to produce more casing, tubing, and line pipe once construction concludes. 

Schneider Electric

In 2016, Schneider Electric’s Russian division appointed a new president - one keen to expand Schneider’s presence in the country and the CIS. So far, Johan Vanderplaeste is bumping up production facilities in Tatarstan and building whole new facilities - making it easier for the French giant’s solutions to slip into the Russian supply chain.
Vanderplaeste has also inked an agreement with the Republic of Tatarstan to build a new research and development centre in Innopolis in March 2017. The new R&D centre will primarily work toward adaptation and development of control systems and specialized software for the oil and gas sector alongside other industries. 
“Russia has a great potential for the development of new technologies, and such project as Innopolis is a perfect demonstration of this potential,” Vanderplaeste said in March. 
Head to Schneider Electric’s stand to discover more about their world class solutions for the oil and gas energy.


Stand: B207
85% of oil extracted in Russia flows through Transneft’s network of over 70,000km of trunk pipelines - and Transneft isn’t letting go of its dominance of Russia’s oil industry any time soon. In fact, Transneft is getting busier and busier.
This year, Transneft has been engaged in a nationwide frenzy of activity, upgrading or replacing hundreds of kilometres of pipe, power stations, and attendant infrastructure. All this work should help bump up Russian export output. Work replacing 200km of trunkline on the Kuybyshev – Tikhoretsk line in the Volga region should increase exports via the port of Novorossiysk by 40 million tons of crude a year alone.
But to the East lies and China - and that’s where Transneft gaze is firmly fixed. The company has said that, by 1 January 2018, it could have increased its China-bound exports to 220 million Bpd. Construction The commissioning of the facilities and the upgrade of supporting infrastructure is expected to last until the end of the third quarter of this year. 


Stand: B214
HMS, or Hydromashservices, ranks amongst Russia’s leading pump and modular equipment suppliers for the oil and gas industry. It is also an active member of the Russian Pump Manufacturers Association. And, as you’d expect from some home-grown talent, they have been integral to the succesful of some vital domestic megaprojects too.
Recently, HMS has supplied oil trunk pumps for both Eastern Siberian-Pacific Ocean Pipelines, as well as backup pump stations on ESPO-1. It has also provided process modules at the Vankor Gas Field in Eastern Siberia. And, as keen followers of Russia’s gas sector will know, Vankor is one of the country's largest gas fields - covering an area of 416.5 sqm.
HMS’ portfolio covers all stages of EPC activity, allowing them to provide tailored solutions to customers - even in some of Russia’s most extreme environments.


Stand: A314
Germany’s AUMA is renowned worldwide for the quality of its products, and it will be bringing more displays of its mechanical knowhow to MIOGE this year. AUMA has a healthy presences in Russia too, intimately involved on some key developments.
At the JSC TANECO Oil Refining and Petrochemical project, in Russia’s oil refinery capital Nizhnekamsk, Tatarstan, the Germans outfitted the site with 56 actuators and gearboxes. This helped speed along construction efforts, aiding Tatneft to start operations by the 2015 date.
With Russian oil production hotting up, it is worth paying a visit to AUMA’s booth in Moscow this year.


Stand number: A481
Turboden secured its first Russian order in 2010. After supplying installing a heat recovery system to extract heat from the associated gas coming from Oil Extraction through controlled combustion (instead of flaring), it has gone from strength to strength. 
The Italian company is known for its bespoke solutions, an approach that has won it support from Russian majors Gazprom and Lukoil in the past. With a client list boasting names as big as those, it is well worth checking out Turboden at MIoge 2017.
