Pre-OTC Special: “What’s New” for Upstream
New coiled tubing = improved fatigue life
to minimize downtime from pipe failure
DURACOIL coiled tubing product is newly developed with
improved tubing fatigue life, predictability, and abrasion resistance for minimal downtime due to pipe failures.
It addresses challenges
of unconventional wells
and is less susceptible to
preferential corrosion and
Microbial Induced Corrosion than conventional designs, declares the manufacturer.
Engineered as a solution for harsh downhole completions,
complicated interventions, and well services, DURACOIL is
manufactured with this company’s patent pending Halo Induction Technology process.

Blast, post-blast fire-resistant walls,
doors, windows for offshore, onshore
Consequences of upstream or downstream blasts — followed
by fre — are safely withstood by InterDam blast and post-blast fre-resistant walls, doors,
Their manufacturer notes “
currently there are no regulation covering a fre outbreak in a post blast
situation.” Its walls, doors, and
windows not only withstand blast
impact but also immediate fre outbreak so personnel are kept safe and have time to implement
appropriate fre procedures.
This provider tested its G21 blast panel Generation V’s fre
resistance following a 0.25-bar overpressure. It achieved a post
blast fre rating of H120 and EI240 (H240) following 240 min
of hydrocarbon fre exposure.

Oil-free gas compressors serve wellhead
transfer, artificial lift, vapor recovery
New NGH100 Horizontal Oil-Free Reciprocating Gas Compressors are designed for a variety of oilfeld production tasks.
As high-effciency horizontal opposed units, they
feature nonlubricated design
in heavy-duty single-stage or
Models handle sour gas
with up to 8% dry H2S fam-mable hazardous byproduct of recovered crude oil and natural gas. For enhanced sour gas compatibility, the compressors
feature select parts (that follow NACE guidelines) in all gas-containment areas.
NGH100 capabilities include up to 3,000 Mscfd at up to

Four-gas monitor continuous-operates
2 years w/o sensor change, battery charge
Once turned on — BW Clip4 four-gas portable monitors
operate continuously for two years — without need to change
sensors or charge batteries.
Designed to reduce maintenance costs associated with
feets of portable gas detectors, the new instruments
eliminate repair work and the
need to stock additional sensors and spare units. They
also drive safety compliance,
assuring workers wearing them are protected from H2S, CO,
O2, and combustibles.
BW Clip4 operates on a ft-and-forget cycle: Turn it on once,
replace the detector two years later when the monitor prompts.
