BVAA Hosts API Meetings

In mid-May, BVAA was delighted to host four days of American Petroleum Institute (API) meetings here at our UK headquarters.

BVAA has always been actively represented on the API ‘6DSS’ and ‘6DSSX’ sub sea valve and actuators TG standards meetings, which one might ordinarily expect to be held in the USA.

However the group has a truly international make-up, with representatives from Spain, Italy, France, USA, etc., and most parts of the UK, and now tries to meet on both sides of the Atlantic.

In fact this was a return visit as BVAA has previously hosted such meetings at our old facility.

Approximately 15 delegates were joined in discussion by several callers who dialled into the sessions on conference calls. BVAA Director Rob Bartlett commented:

‘I was delighted to be able to welcome the API TGs to the new Peter Churm Technical Centre. Peter was an active participant in the TGs for many years and he often spoke of the kind hospitality he received at the USA meetings - I hope we were able to return a little of that kindness. Both groups made good progress we understand and BVAA remains ready to host again if required.’
