Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, will showcase at Offshore Technology Conference 2013 in Houston, TX (USA) from May 6th to 9th (booth 4753). The Group will present its comprehensive product portfolio specifically designed for the Oil and Gas industry.

OTC 2013 comes at very important time for the Group that is currently launching its latest product innovation for Shipboard and Offshore Marine applications: Seaflame™, a complete product range of power, control and instrumentation cables with enhanced fire resistance characteristics. Designed to meet and exceed all most rigorous fire resistance standards and to withstand all events associated to fire (sprinklers, extinguishing hoses, etc.), Seaflame™ can be installed without metallic duct or protections, thus leading to reduced installation space, materials, time and costs, lower installed weight and accordingly reduced total cost of ownership.

To complement the available range on display for offshore and on-shore applications, exclusive specialties such as Drylam™ and Airguard™ Cable Systems; innovative solutions such as Bostrig™; enhanced service loops for top drives; tailor made cable assemblies and accessories; DHT technologies and a comprehensive range of SURF products: recently the Group has finalized the qualification process for 6" flexible pipes, thus taking a significant step forward in the design and supply of a wide range of dynamic risers and static flow lines for offshore oil and gas extraction.

On the occasion of OTC 2013, latest updates regarding new 6" products and related developments will be given during a technical lunch that will take place at Reliant Stadium on May 8th.

Prysmian Group is the leading player in the cable industry with 16 plants dedicated specifically to cables for the OGP sector. Besides the facilities in Australia, Europe, Malaysia and South America, the Group can now rely on two plants in North America, thus broadening the available range of products technology to special Down Hole Tubing (DHT) systems (manufactured in Massachusetts and New Jersey) and creating interesting cross-selling opportunities to accelerate the businessís expansion in new strategic areas such as ASEAN, Northern Europe and Western Africa in order to support the leading key players in the global OGP industry such as ENI, SAIPEM, BP, Foster Wheeler, Shell, Petrobras, Petrofac, etc.

The Group boasts a long-standing tradition of involvement in some of the most important, strategic and technologically advanced projects in the industry, such as the Kashagan Oil Field in Kazakhstan, the Seadrill, Petrorig and Hull offshore drilling rigs for Jurong Shipyards and Keppel Fels in Singapore and the Shell Nanhai petrochemical complex in China. The next steps in the Groupís strategies are the further strengthening of its position in the OGP sector, in particular by targeting the offshore oil extraction areas in South East Asia, the Gulf of Mexico and Western Africa.
