Kinetic is seeking to herald a new age in safety and performance in offshore drilling. To do this, Kinetic is engaging world leading consultants, manufacturers and suppliers to support the design, testing and manufacturing of the Kinetic Blow out Stopper (K-BOS). Kinetic has awarded a contract to FE Consultants (FEC) for advanced engineering studies relating to the K-BOS continuing design effort.

FEC is a mechanical engineering firm focused on advanced analysis and design. FEC has a proven track record designing pressure components, including  extensive experience in High Pressure and High Temperature (HPHT) applications.

Dr. Robert Frith,  the founding director of FEC stated  ”K-BOS is a new and arguably “disruptive” application of existing technology into the drilling industry. It is both humbling and exciting to partner with Kinetic  in its development. We are keen to see it become the new standard for Blow out prevention”.

Mr. Steven Angstmann, CEO and Co-Founder of Kinetic commented “FEC are a true world class partner, Dr. Frith and his team have impressed us with their depth of understanding and their ability to offer innovative solutions . We look forward to working with them to make the K-BOS as safe and reliable as possible.”
