From 2-5 May, LKAB Minerals was present at the OTC Houston to interact with customers and prospects on the benefits of MagnaDense for offshore projects.
Although the industry is slowing down at the moment, the OTC Houston remains one of the largest annual offshore shows in the world and a must-go for many. Numbers indicated that over 68,000 people linked to the offshore industry visited this international show.
“The OTC is an extremely friendly exhibition. We met many customers and prospects both in their own stands and on ours. This show remains the place to be for the oil and gas industry even in difficult times” Denise Roberts, Business Development Manager Magnetite, stated after the show.
Offshore projects in need of extra weight
Looking at the offshore industry, MagnaDense, our own mined and processed natural mineral, has many application possibilities. Due to its weight, MagnaDense is used as either loose ballast or mixed as an aggregate into concrete. LKAB Minerals has made many satisfied customers over the years and has experience in a great variety of projects where our natural iron oxide gives weight.
In the offshore industry MagnaDense has been used in:
- GBS Gravity based structures
- Wind turbine foundations
- Concrete weight pipe coated pipelines
- Concrete mattresses
- Seabed anchors
- Floating oil platforms
- Coastal and erosion protection
Depending on your specific application, MagnaDense can be recyclable as was shown in the recollection and reuse of the product after more than a decade in the Draugen Floating Platform.
