Customer Showcase - Cemtec Services:

"Since we purchased the Benchtop Pressurized Cement Consistometer from OFITE, our cement laboratory has performed 968 thickening time tests in accordance with API Spec. 10. Please note that the above mentioned testing performances are the result of a steady maintenance program of the equipment, and a standard one year stock of replacement parts. Throughout the 3,500 hours of testing, no major failure was recorded." - Guy Mazzilli, Cemtec Services.


Latest API News from the Meetings in Denver:

The 79th Annual Summer Standardization Conference of the American Petroleum Institute was held in Denver, Colorado at the Westin Westminster Hotel June 24 – 28, 2002. The meeting began with a general session breakfast hosted by Bruce Reynolds, of ChevronTexaco, who discussed new visions for standardization and plans to increase participation and various work process improvements.

As we have in years past, OFITE actively participated in the Well Cements (SC 10) and the Drilling Fluid Materials (SC 13) sessions. Following the standard format, work group sessions were held Monday, June 24, followed by the task group meetings and reports on Tuesday. The HPHT Thermocouple work group, chaired by Larry Mitchell, had a very good progress report by John Toups of Westport Technology Center. Larry also conducted the retort work group session for Tom Carter, who is the chairman, but was unable to attend. This was a very lively and spirited session with a lot of varying opinions as to what direction we need to be heading in. Rick Lukay represented OFITE in the Well Cements (SC 10) work and task group sessions.

Bruker AXS cuts costs despite good quarter
Bruker AXS has announced a restructuring aimed at taking $2-3 million out of annual costs, despite exceeding expectations in the third quarter of fiscal 2002 ended 30th June. Revenues were up to 19% compared with a year ago at $24.0 million. Net income of $0.6 million improved compared with a net loss of &1.8 previously. For the first six months sales grew 22% to $47.8 million and net income was $0.9 million, as against a net loss of $1.6 million. Growth was driven by sales of its X-ray systems in the materials science sector. Sales in Japan were boosted by the acquisition of MAC Science. Bruker AXS expects strong 20% growth for the rest of the year from materials sciences and its life sciences, where the company just launched a new range of X-ray based systems for structural proteomics. That growth could take Bruker AXS to over $100 million in annual sales.
