The price of products and services trails other significant factors, such as value, life cycle, and durability as a purchase priority, according to a recent independent survey of oil and gas professionals making procurement decisions, conducted on behalf of Trelleborg’s oil and marine operation. Despite challenging times for the industry, when asked to rank different factors affecting their decision to purchase an oil hose, respondents listed ‘durability and life cycle’ as ‘vital’ over 80% of the time. The next most ‘vital’ factors were ‘aftersales support and service’, and ‘ease of installation’ at 32% and 28% respectively.

The Government of British Columbia is taking action under the Climate Leadership Plan to support investments by natural gas utilities that will increase the use of LNG and renewable natural gas in the transportation, marine and other sectors and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Natural disasters such as raging winds and seas may appear to create the greatest risks to offshore oil platforms and gas rigs, however safety related and life threatening accidents continue to plague operations and raise significant concerns with corporate leaders. It’s the growing number of reportable incidents and near misses that occur when overhead objects – equipment and tools – drop from hundreds of feet above a work area due to improper fastening and unreliable means of securing.
Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced a new connected-learning solution based on its industry-leading UniSim Competency Suite platform. Part of the Honeywell Connected Plant intiative, UniSim eLearn is hosted in the cloud and revolutionizes access to operator training simulation (OTS). It’s a key tool in delivering effective operator competency management.
The government of British Columbia is pleased by the news that TransCanada Corporation (TransCanada) has filed a variance application with the National Energy Board to proceed with the construction of the North Montney Mainline (NMML) project.
TransCanada Corporation has filed a variance application with the National Energy Board to proceed with construction of the North Montney Mainline (NMML) Project in northeast British Columbia. TransCanada has previously been granted the required primary federal and provincial approvals to construct NMML, subject to conditions that included the requirement for a positive final investment decision on the proposed Pacific Northwest LNG (PNW) Project.

Both the C rail/suspension tracks and the light crane systems are rated for use in explosion and hazardous dust-laden areas up to ATEX Zone 2, 22.
Every year, leading valuation and strategy consultancy Brand Finance values the brands of thousands of the world’s biggest companies. Brands are first evaluated to determine their power / strength (based on factors such as marketing investment, familiarity, loyalty, staff satisfaction and corporate reputation) and given a corresponding letter grade up to AAA+. Brand strength is used to determine what proportion of a business’s revenue is contributed by the brand, which is projected into perpetuity to determine the brand’s value. The world’s most valuable oil & gas brands are ranked and included in the Brand Finance Oil & Gas 50 2017.
Global Tubing, LLC, the industry leader in coiled tubing products and services, launches DURACOIL, a revolutionary coiled tubing product. DURACOIL’s improved tubing fatigue life, predictability and resistance to abrasion minimizes downtime due to pipe failures. It is also less susceptible to preferential corrosion and Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) than conventional coiled tubing.

Investing in the production of renewable natural gas (RNG) from forest industry residue can diversify Canada's energy mix, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve industrial efficiency and create new economic opportunities for Canadian companies and good middle-class jobs that benefit rural communities.
The British Columbia government has welcomed news of TransCanada successfully concluding a long-term fixed-price Open Season for natural gas transport on the Canadian Mainline from the Empress receipt point in Alberta to the Dawn hub in southern Ontario. The company confirmed that its recent Open Season resulted in binding, long-term contracts from Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) gas producers to transport 1.5 PJ/d of natural gas at a simplified toll of $0.77/GJ.
Clark-Reliance Corporation has announced a new line of coalescing filter elements for the gas processing industry. The new VertexCore filter elements have been designed to eliminate unsafe filter element changeout techniques while increasing filtration efficiencies. VertexCore elements have a fixed extension that is welded to the element end cap, which allows maintenance staff to easily remove and replace elements without exposing their head, shoulders, torso or legs to a confined space. This design feature eliminates the widespread behavior of climbing into or reaching into filtration pressure vessels to remove or replace elements. The VertexCore extensions and hold down rods, while facilitating element replacement, also provide a barrier to prevent operator entry, a positive reinforcement to confined space safety regulations.
Baker Hughes announced the commercial release of its TerrAdapt adaptive drill bit, which can deliver dramatic improvements in drilling economics by using automation to mitigate downhole dysfunctions that cause inefficient drilling and costly tool failures. With the industry’s first self-adjusting depth-of-cut (DOC) control elements, the TerrAdapt bit automatically changes its aggressiveness based on the formation through which it is drilling to mitigate vibrations, stick-slip and impact loading. For operators, this means faster, more consistent rates of penetration (ROP), longer bit/tool life and significantly reduced non-productive time and invisible lost time.
