UK-based Trouvay and Cauvin (T&C) has recently expanded its operations in the region with the opening of a new offshore division.

The main objective of the newly created offshore oil and gas division, says Arnaud Humbert, T&C's general manager -- Offshore Projects, is to cater to the specific market of offshore industry and to make the T&C group one of the major offshore stockist stock·ist

 and project package specialist all over the world. Using all the synergies of company's head office in Dubai and the Middle East / Asian branches, and supported by the expertise of the group in the field of oil and gas onshore developments, the offshore oil and gas division will cover the strategic key segments like subsea Subsea is a general term frequently used to refer to equipment, technology, and methods employed to explore, drill, and develop oil and gas fields that exist below the ocean floors.

 Humbert, T&C's FPSO business is also gaining importance as energy companies develop fields in deeper water and more remote locations. T&C expertise, well recognised in the world of oil and gas, can today be at the service of this market, he says. T&C is one of the major stockists and project package specialist for the distribution of steel pipes and tubes, valves, instrumentation equipment and related components used in fluid and gas transmission all over the world. The company has capitalised a significant project experience gained over the last 27 years of its existence in the region. Today, the increasing complexity of FPSO projects requires the implementation of state-of-the-art expertise in supplying the right equipment package, at the right place, at the right time, and responding to the high standard offshore specifications. The group's oil and gas references and its recognised expertise are strategic assets to respond to these requirements. "With a staff who understands the regulatory, logistical and environmental issues of the locations where we work and can quickly solve problems, by developing closer and sustainable relationships with major offshore players (E&P companies, contractors), and by being compliant with the main certification quality systems (ISO (1) See ISO speed.
