Bulk loading solutions

Bulk-loading hoses are manufactured for use, primarily in the oil and gas offshore industry, for the delivery of a wide range of bulk liquids and abrasive powders between supply vessels and drilling rigs/platforms.

Active Service has been a leading provider of bulk-loading hoses for more than 20 years and has supplied to all the major rig companies around the globe. We have developed a modular design to help our customers to improve safety and at the same time reduce cost of maintenance over time. Active Service is commited to continue to develop solutions by working closely with our customers and our suppliers


Active Service established an umbilical production in 2014 to deliver customized design and ensure short lead time. An area in which we specialize is the short-length umbilical market. We provide a custom-engineered service encompassing design, engineering, manufacturing, testing and installation together with back-up support and after-sales service that the medium/large manufacturers cannot match. We offer fast track turnaround and delivery of finished product due to our extensive stockholding of specialist hydraulic control line hoses, combined with our in-house capability to manufacture bespoke or specialist end connections in both standard and exotic materials such as Monel, Inconel, 6MO, Super Duplex etc. Active Service has close relationships with key suppliers to secure short delivery time and access to a wide range of hoses and fittings. Our Extrusion and Coatings service encompasses the encapsulation of both single hose and hose bundles with a Polymer or Elastomer cover that significantly increases hose service life whilst assuring operational reliability

Safe grip

In 2004 Odfjell Drilling and Statoil challenged us to make their drill floor safer by preventing high pressure hoses from dropping on the drill floor in case of hose failure. We took the challenge and created the Safe Grip. Active Service Safe Grips provide the strength, flexibility and reliability required for securing high pressure and offshore supply hoses. They are designed to distribute stress over a large area so they can securely hold and prevent the hose from falling to the drill floor if a hose burst occurs.Today, the Active Service Safe Grips are used worldwide by companies such as Odfjell Drilling, Statoil, KCA Deutag Drilling Norge and Transocean Offshore; to mention a few.Statoil refers to Safe Grip in their best practice handbook «Dropped Object Management».

Drilling Hoses

Active Service has during the summer 2017 signed an agreement with Shandong Techfluid Engineering in China to deliver a full range of high quality and fully certified High Pressure (HP) hoses. Techfluid has delivered HP hoses to the Norwegian and international markets for more than 10 years and has acquired a solid track record. Our comprehensive product portfolio covers all drilling applications whether offshore or onshore. Rotary hoses meet the highest levels of the latest API 7K specification and our Choke and Kill lines exceed the requirements of the demanding API 16C specification.
