With over 2800 people registered to attend and over 160 exhibiting companies at this years APPEA
2011 conference which took place at the Perth Convention Centre, Western Australia, AGR Field
Operations Manchester office were keen to assist their Australian colleagues to promote not only the
broad range of services that AGR has to offer but our advanced ultrasonic equipment that is designed
and developed by AGR Technology Design here in the UK.
The conference is always a huge hit with delegates from all aspects of the oil and gas arena and is seen
as the main place for networking for the upstream oil and gas industry in the southern hemisphere.
The show was attended by some of the biggest players in the oil and gas industry. General Manager
for AGR Technology Design, Mark Clark said; we had lots of interest at the booth for the service side of
AGRs business, with lots of key clients taking the opportunity to speak to other managers across our
divisions and exploring how AGR can prove to be their service provider of choice. Great interest was
also shown during numerous demonstrations of our powerful TD Focus Scan, where companies and
delegates went on to explain that they were now looking at bringing the testing in-house. They were
overwhelmed by the feature to cost ratio that the TD Focus Scan can offer. Both Ian Baker (AGR
Design & Development Manager) and Mark Clark teamed up with their
Australian colleagues to demonstrate the power of the system at key
meetings with blue-chip clients after the show had ended.
Ian Baker went on to say; the general interest in bringing the testing inhouse
for a lot of companies seemed much more a reality after seeing how
powerful the system was whilst remaining user friendly across our product
