Sooner Firms Can Exhibit Wares in Southeast Asia

Article excerpt


Oil and gas equipment manufacturers from Oklahoma can showcase their wares this December in one of the fastest growing exploration spots - Southeast Asia - at a relatively low cost.

The Oklahoma Department of Commerce and Oklahoma District Export Council are co-sponsoring a Sooner exhibit at the 8th Offshore South East Asia Petroleum Show in Singapore. The show and conference is set for Dec. 4-7.

Drilling activity throughout Southeast Asia will rise by 16.5 percent in 1990-91, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce.

For instance, Indonesia's Pertamina will award 20 production-sharing contracts by the end of this year. Shell and Esso drilling operations in Malaysia are at their most active levels since the early 1980s. Unocal is developing five additional gas fields in the Gulf of Thailand. The Philippines government is planning new incentives to attract foreign companies. And, construction of the Malaysia-Singapore gas pipeline continues ahead.

Products best suited for the Singapore show, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce, are pumps, valves and compressors; instrumentation equipment like analyzing, checking, measuring and controlling devices; specialized electronic data processing equipment, peripherals and software; specialty chemicals, synthetic resins, organic and inorganic chemicals and refined petroleum products; and, generators and other electrical starting equipment for internal combustion engines.

Other product categories with the greatest potential for this show are power machinery; boring and sinking machinery; oil rig stores; metal and electrical conduit tubes; lifting, handling and loading machines; lifts and skip hoists; electric plants; environmental control equipment and parts for all those products.

Three Oklahoma firms, on a first-come basis, will be allowed in the Oklahoma booth at a fee of $974 each. And, up to 10 firms can participate in a catalog and video display, on a first-come basis, at a fee of $250 each.
