GMI's state-of-the art PS200 is a rugged, lightweight, and reliable multi gas monitor ideal for personal protection in harsh environments, hotworks, and confined spaces. Watch the video to learn more.
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.
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.
PipeLine Machinery International (PLM) has announced a new custom equipment solution to the pipeline industry - PANTHER T12 by PRINOTH. As the latest innovation in a low ground pressure carrier crawler, the PANTHER T12 operates in off-road and various weather conditions offering exceptional performance and versatility.
The PANTHER T12 combines the proven capabilities of the Cat C7.1 ACERT engine model with the industry expertise in off-road vehicles by PRINOTH.
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.

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.
Energy Recovery, Inc., the leader in recycling fluid pressure in the oil and gas, chemical and water industries, has announced that the Company has secured the first sale of its IsoBoost system for midstream gas processing to ConocoPhillips. Specifically designed to increase the runtime and reliability while lowering operating expenditures in natural gas processing, the IsoBoost is an integrated skid-mounted solution that improves uptime, reduces operating costs, and offers a return on investment as quick as six months.
As a new entrant in the oil and gas sector, the deal further anchors Energy Recovery as a solutions provider for the oil and gas industry. In addition to this expansion towards greater North America with its new oil and gas energy recovery systems, the IsoBoost solution fits well with Canada’s overall environmental and sustainability goals to reduce carbon emissions within big industry.
Volvo Trucks has opened its new North American Uptime Center, bringing together key resources to ensure that customers’ trucks keep moving. The 123,000 square-foot Uptime Center consolidates the people and systems needed to monitor and respond to vehicle issues in real time, help dealers troubleshoot difficult cases and find the necessary parts for repair.
CEPA acknowledges the proposed changes to the Pipeline Safety Act has announced by the Minister of Natural Resources and Minister for the Federal Economic Development Initiative for Northern Ontario, the Honourable Greg Rickford. Amendments to the Act to enhance pipeline safety and performance align well with the transmission pipeline industry’s ongoing commitment to continuous improvement.
“The proposed amendments demonstrate common ground between the federal government and the pipeline industry to our commitment to world class pipeline safety through comprehensive prevention, preparedness and response, and liability measures," says Brenda Kenny, president and CEO of the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association.
The GE Mentor Visual iQ VideoProbe features 3D Phase Measurement and analysis as well as wi-fi connectivity. The borescope’s superior image quality and faster, more precise detection abilities streamline the inspection process and help to ensure the safety and integrity of assets while reducing downtime.
Inspection technicians in the aerospace, power generation and oil and gas industries depend on precise inspections to keep equipment and facilities functioning under optimal conditions.
Joints of high quality between cylindrical sections such as tubes and pipes can only be made by ensuring that atmospheric gases are eliminated, and positive, smooth weld reinforcement is provided.
The presence of oxygen, and to a lesser extent nitrogen, around the molten weld can lead to wide-ranging defects. Discoloration is unsightly and in some instances might reflect metallurgical imbalance, especially with some stainless steels. Gross oxidation inevitably results in reduction in mechanical properties and can cause catastrophic loss of corrosion resistance. Nitrogen contamination can result in brittleness. Gases in the weld may give rise to cracking during or after cooling.
