Smithers Rapra to Host Webinar on the variety of challenges related to sealing in the oil and gas (O&G) industry.
Increasing oil extraction pressures and temperatures, aggressive chemicals and rapid gas decompression (RGD) in new, more difficult drilling sites create operating environments beyond the capabilities of most elastomers. These demanding conditions can impact sealing performance and reliability, and ultimately may result in downtime.
So what can companies do to equip themselves for improved performance?
Smithers Rapra will be hosting a webinar from DuPont Performance Polymers, ‘Solving sealing challenges in upstream and downstream environments,’ that explores the challenges for sealing parts in O&G applications, and outlines the
solutions available to companies in this field. Jean-Luc Matoux, Application Engineering Specialist at DuPont, will speak on Tuesday 6 May 2014 on challenges and solutions, and cover:
- Consequences of improper seal selection
- Specific O&G challenges
- Sealing performance measurements
- Solutions available
- Application areas
- Cost of ownership implications.
Date: Tuesday 6 May 2014
15:00 Europe Summer Time
14:00 British Summer Time
08:00 US Central Daylight Time
Duration: 1 hour: 45-minute presentation with 15 minutes for Q&A
Speaker: Jean-Luc Matoux, Application Engineering Specialist at DuPont
Who should attend
Engineers and managers in oil and gas drilling and exploration, bothonand off-shore, will gain valuable insight into the unique conditions in these applications, and guidance on suitable solutions for longer seal life and increased process performance.
