Danish firm, Global Gravity developer of TubeLock, an innovative tubular handling frame which

transports, lifts and stores drill pipes, casing and tubulars more efficiently, cost-effectively and safer

than conventional wire bundling has just returned from a highly successful visit to Abu Dhabi and



Organised by the Danish Embassy in Dubai and Danish Export Association (Merethe Wrang), the

trade mission gave Global Gravity and other participants the opportunity to meet representatives of

a number of oil and gas operators.


“We met with drilling managers and completions engineers and other representatives from some of

the biggest operators in the Middle East, and there was considerable interest in the TubeLock

system,” said Kim Christensen, Sales & Marketing Director. “It was a very well organised and

worthwhile trip with great potential for future business activity for us.”

Global Gravity exhibited their patented New Generation Tubular Handling System at Offshore

Europe in 2015 and they are now considering setting up a Scottish-based facility to help meet



“We are very pleased with the success of TubeLock and welcome the ratification which we’ve had

from operators and contractors since it went into operation,” said Kim.

Developed specifically for the Oilfield Casing and Tubular Goods (OCTG) sector of the industry

TubeLock encases batches of tubulars in a fixed frame. Once they are securely locked in place,

“packs” of tubulars are transported from source to the quayside where they can be can be safely

and efficiently lifted for onward transportation to offshore installations where they are offloaded,

stacked and stored.


“Improving the working conditions for the on and offshore workforce is a priority and our goal is to

achieve zero accidents,” said Kim. “In response to the current economic operating conditions we are

also committed to helping the industry achieve cost reductions on handling which leads to increased

efficiency on installations. To achieve optimum results we supervise on and offshore packing to

ensure the drilling crew has optimal working conditions and to provide enhanced safety conditions.”
