Our man in Havana

Most people have some kind of vision of Cuba - a great place for a change of culture with fabulous old cars, vibrant locations and great music. But it might not seem the obvious place to find Enviropeel, even though we have already worked extensively in the Caribbean on LPG carriers travelling between Trinidad and Venezuela, as well as on Trinidad itself.

Yet Cuba has its own oil and gas industry despite the long-standing US embargo, and now, following an enquiry from a Canadian oil and gas company with extensive interests in the region, it has Enviropeel too!

Working on an island in a humid, salty environment, the company was seeking a solution to corrosion problems with bolting on its wellheads. Following extensive research, it was decided that Enviropeel seemed to be just the product they needed.

As well as standard grey material, special batches of red and blue were manufactured in the UK and shipped to Cuba, together with a small mobile Enviropeel unit. Technical Director, Simon Haycox, travelled from Malaysia to Cuba (a very long journey) to survey and advise on corrosion control using Enviropeel, train local personnel and complete a number of successful initial applications.
