U.S. Oil & Gas Industry Suppliers Look to Grow Share of Offshore Markets at ONS 2018


Stavanger, Norway and Waldwick, N.J. / August 22, 2018 U.S. energy production, equipment and services suppliers will exhibit innovative technologies and engineering solutions to compete for new business on the Norwegian Continental Shelf during ONS 2018 next week.

Launched in 1974 when oil and gas were first discovered beneath the North Sea, ONS is well-established as the premier event for buyers and sellers representing the wide scope of primarily offshore energy interests across the region. This year’s event is expected to host more than 1,250 exhibitors and 65,000 trade visitors at the Stavanger Forum Conference and Exhibition Centre August 27-30.   

“Norway and the United States’ natural resources and many advanced, technology-driven companies create highly attractive opportunities and synergies in industries such as offshore energy, cleantech, IT, robotics, transportation, maritime, safety, security, and defense,” said Vidar Keyn, Head of the Commercial Section in the U.S. Embassy, Oslo. “This ONS week is all about making those connections and getting wiser on how to drive successful developments in a rapidly changing world. “

Nearly 30 American companies will exhibit at this year’s event, almost half in the USA Partnership Pavilion, organized by Kallman Worldwide, Inc., the show’s official U.S representative, in coordination with government agencies, including the departments of commerce and state.

Located prominently in Hall 9, the Pavilion is America’s headquarters on-site: an efficient location for buyers to meet more U.S. suppliers, a professional business center for U.S. exhibitors looking to maximize their exposure and time at the event, and a forum for all to share ideas and insights.

“Now more than ever, success in international trade is driven by partnership and teamwork,” said Kallman Worldwide President and CEO Tom Kallman. “America’s presence at ONS, amplified by the USA Partnership Pavilion, is a strong indication of how important the region is to U.S. energy companies, and that buyers and influencers here are looking to the U.S. for innovative solutions and partners.”

From data analytics and operating software to production equipment and workforce advocacy, the Pavilion is an end-to-end showcase of American ideas and innovation. Highlights include:

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (Booth 9225-J) promotes the art, science and practice of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences around the globe. At ONS the society will share insights, ideas and information about the engineering profession and its services to support engineers.

ASTM International (Booth 9225-J) defines and sets more than 12,000 global operating standards. The organization will present technical literature and training materials covering safety, environmental protection and regulatory services, testing and NDT.

Bentley Systems (Booth 9225-D) will present new solutions for connected environments to channel and consolidate information and data for improved efficiency. The latest version of its AssetWise CONNECT product consolidates chemical and corrosion data into one source for more informed decisions on chemical usage, dosage rates, inventory and more, with a minimum 10% reduction of chemical costs. Bentley’s SACS CONNECT (Edition 12) is an integrated workflow tool that provides extreme event analysis consideration, including reality modeling to support the decommissioning of offshore platforms, 4D construction management (Synchro) and geotechnical (subsea) integrity analysis (Plaxis).

GeoDynamics (Booth 9225-F) will be exhibiting technologies for improving production and reducing costs, including key perforating technologies for the completion of wells along with end of well life plug and abandonment systems.

Purge Solutions (Booth 9225-H) is an original equipment manufacturer exhibiting at ONS for the first time on the recommendation of one of its buyers. The company will present Type Z, Y and X purge/pressurization systems, enclosures, window kits and Vortex cooler systems. 

Solar Turbines, Inc. (Booth9225-I) will exhibit its energy solutions and Lifecycle Support portfolio, including updated turbines and compressors.


In addition to space on site, USA Partnership Pavilion exhibitors are featured in Kallman’s online ONS 2018 Visitor Zone at kallman.com/ons-2018. The Visitor Zone features interactive tools, including exhibitor news summaries and images, to connect interested industry professionals and media around the world to the Pavilion, even if they can’t attend ONS 2018 in person.
