Production and oilfield chemistry enables the effective extraction of oil, liquids, and gas resources to be efficiently produced, transported, and refined to their end products. They come in the form of drilling fluids, completion fluids, chemical inhibitors, proppant resins, and other flow assurance and well stimulation additives. In this challenging phase of the oil and gas industry, it is important to be cost competitive and smart in the selection and use of chemicals and materials.
This November 2015, the cost performance ratio imperative and the use of nanotechnology will be highlighted at Oil & Gas Chemistry 2015 Tutorial-Conference in Houston, Texas. In partnerships with PETRO-Case, this annual tutorial and conference features engineers, chemists, and managers who gather to learn more about the technical challenges and solutions for the industry. Participants are from major operators, chemical companies, and oilfield service companies who want to focus on the importance of chemicals, polymers, and materials for the industry. It is important for key decision makers and even marketing managers to understand the value of cost-effective and high performance chemicals and materials in high-value adding propositions. The tutorial phase of the meeting with PETRO-Case is important as it allows the novice and the expert to be refreshed on the basics of chemicals, polymers, and materials used in oil & gas. However, advanced topics such as stimuli-responsive fluids, advanced proppant properties, and specific insights to new technologies will also be discussed.
Since there are more problems than solutions facing the industry it is important to explore all avenues of advances in technology. Invited speakers are able to share their expertise and opinions on current trends and applications of these technologies. New analytical methods and characterization tools will be highlighted from partner companies that enable characterization, testing and simulation of performance in additives. The participants will also learn about the specific trends on the use of nanotechnology for improved polymer materials and oilfield chemical additives. This includes nanomaterials such as graphene, nanoclay, nanocellulose, and its incorporation in fluids and polymer nanocomposites.
