Sulzer has acquired Advanced Separation Company (ASCOM) B.V. and ProLabNL B.V. The acquisitions expand the offering of the division Sulzer Chemtech for gas-liquid and liquid-liquid separation technologies.
ASCOM’s portfolio covers gas-liquid separation, liquid-liquid separation, produced water treatment, solids handling and gas treatment. It will enhance Sulzer’s offering in this fast growing market. Building on its technologies validated by major oil companies and its expertise in process design, ASCOM offers advanced separation solutions for both traditional vessel-based and compact inline separation. Application of ASCOM technologies enable de-bottlenecking of ageing oilfield process systems. Applied to new investment, it can significantly reduce Capex and Opex of offshore, floating and onshore processing facilities. This advanced technology has also been fully validated for subsea processing.
ProLabNL offers advanced multiphase flow loops worldwide, simulating real oilfield conditions under high or low pressure conditions. Leading oil and gas companies are using ProLabNL extensively for conventional and subsea technology qualification programs.
The integration will start after closing, which is expected at the end of September 2014. Sulzer also confirmed that all employees will be retained.
