New company enters the market to improve production
Founded in early 2015, Cavitas Energy was born from a six-figure investment and is set to introduce a new suite of devices based around the company’s Cavitas Generator in response to industry challenges.
Formed by a strong management team with over 25 years collective experience in the oil and gas industry, Cavitas is set to accelerate oil recovery through investment in topside steam generation, pipeline flow assurance and downhole solutions.
Steve Johnstone, General Manager, is responsible for the strategic direction of the company and speaking about the solutions offered said: “We identified a clear gap in the market place that could respond to the current industry challenges. With a vast development history in downhole and inspection tooling, gate valve actuators, PAMS systems, rental tooling, inspection devices and pipeline crawlers, our management team and innovators have optimised these technologies to remove wax and hydrate from within production tubulars and potentially enhance oil recovery.
“Our development path has included studies by Aberdeen University, along with independent Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis, to refine and develop the technology. Initial results have been positive, demonstrating greater efficiencies, with a lower power requirement and smaller equipment footprint.
“The initial research has attracted sufficient investment such that we are in the processes of building and testing our prototype to work in conjunction with other EOR techniques. We are encouraged with the original results and look forward to eventually introducing our products to a wider market.”
Operating largely in the oil and gas arena, the management team foresee the solutions being distributed worldwide and are in early conversations with a number of partners keen to invest in the technology in the recognition of its global use.
