Dow Corning to unveil new subsea thermal insulation technology at Subsea Tieback Forum & Exhibition

At the 2013 Subsea Tieback Forum & Exhibition, Dow Corning Corporation will launch Dow Corning XTI-1003 RTV Silicone Rubber Insulation, a solid, non-syntactic advanced thermal insulation solution for high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) equipment used in deepwater production infrastructure and tiebacks.

Extensive and ongoing tests to meet producer specifications and applicator requirements indicate improvements such as: simplicity for lower risk; application ease; increased joint strength; excellent flexibility; thermal stability; and anticipated gains in field performance, reliability and service life. Based on a room-temperature-curing (RTV) liquid silicone rubber (LSR) elastomer, the precisely engineered Dow Corning XTI-1003 RTV Silicone Rubber Insulation formulation is easy to mix and apply. It cures to a durable, flexible translucent rubber without potentially harmful by-products.

The Subsea Tieback Forum & Exhibition will focus on improving the quality, safety and economics of the subsea tieback industry. Known as a premier event for one of the fastest-growing sectors of the oil and gas industry, the conference is scheduled for March 5 through 7 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, USA.

In Booth 957, Dow Corning will feature the new Dow Corning XTI-1003 RTV Silicone Rubber Insulation along with a variety of  Dow Corning brand specialty silicones, Molykote brand Smart Lubrication solutions, Dow Corning brand engineered elastomers and Dow Corning brand severe-duty sealants for use in oil and gas applications.

Mcelroy Announces New Hydraulically Adjustable Pipe Stand

McElroy has brought hydraulic capability to its Pipe Stand line for 4” to 20” (200mm-500mm) pipe to help align thermoplastic pipe more efficiently on butt fusion jobsites.

The Hydraulically Adjustable Pipe Stand features hand-pumped hydraulic lifting which gives the operator the ability to adjust the height of the stand while the pipe is still supported on the stand. The hydraulic adjusting feature eliminates the need to remove the pipe from the stand so that the chain and height can be adjusted by hand.

Genomics Adds a New Dimension to LNG and Biofuels

As British Columbia looks for sustainable energy alternatives to help offset the impact of climate change, two sectors are emerging with the potential to fuel economic growth with reduced greenhouse gas emissions. These include natural gas sourced from deep shale formations and biofuels refined from renewable plant materials.

British Columbia’s natural gas strategy centers on development of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector fuelled by shale gas and the province estimates that LNG exports will generate an economic windfall approaching $1 trillion over the next three decades. Another pillar of British Columbia’s bioenergy strategy mandates using blended biofuels including ethanol, methanol and biodiesel. Despite the promise of using shale gas and blended biofuels to offset climate impacts of fossil fuel consumption, recent studies indicate that both alternatives are not without social and environmental hazards.

Challenges in Water Treatment for the Upstream Oil and Gas Market

As global energy consumption continues its trend of rapid growth, new sources of energy must be identified and developed to meet the rising demand. In recent years, meaningful advancements in production technologies have led to significant increases in oil and gas reserves that are now recognized as recoverable.

These technologies, including the development of enhanced oil recovery strategies and novel drilling techniques, such as directional drilling, have created new possibilities in upstream oil and gas production, enabling extraction from formations that were previously too difficult or cost prohibitive to produce.

Trenchless Pipeline Construction Making Inroads in Western Canada

The Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (WCSB), a vast slab of sedimentary rock extending from the Rocky Mountains to the Canadian Shield, is not only prime territory for oil and gas exploration but for companies that install pipelines for the various operators pulling product from fields throughout the basin.

Up until a few years ago, pipeline construction in the oil and gas sector has involved traditional open-cut construction methods, with its accompanying high ground disturbance, but that is starting to change, thanks to advances in horizontal directional drilling (HDD) technology and the wider acceptance of such technology throughout the industry.
