Among our many suppliers, Argo Flare Services employ specialist fabricators that refurbish and manufacture the majority of our flares. These companies are well known and well regarded within the industry as being expert in the fabrication of high temperature alloy equipment. Argo Flare Services’ relationships with these fabricators has been forged over many years such that expedited and fast track deliveries can often be accomodated for our clients when required.
Argo also have access to an experienced metallurgist who has extensive knowledge of the high temperature resistant alloys that are used in the fabrication of flare tips. This excellent knowledge of “flare metallurgy” coupled with first hand understanding of the harsh operating envelope for the equipment has enabled Argo Flare Services to provide solutions to clients where more traditional flare materials have failed to live upto expectation.
Our aerial photographer has been working in the North Sea for over 25 years. His first flare photographic assignment was Brae Alpha back in April 1987. Even without the pre-flight brief we provide him before each contract, he knows what we are looking for when carrying out Aerial Flare Inspection Surveys. The clarity and level of detail that he is able to obtain for us, enables our engineers to provide valuable inspection reports for our clients without need to shutdown production and isolate the flares.
