It is the new normal for offshore exploration and recovery to move to greater depths since the amount of competition and demand has increased over the years. Nowadays it has become necessary to tackle higher pressures and temperatures in comparison to the past, and often in substantially more demanding and corrosive environments.
Land based operations are utilising a broader array of enhanced oil recovery fluids and media, as well as being forced to work in high H2S concentration deposits, each of which places further strain on the non-metallic components of the devices and tools used in the recovery of fluids and gases.
More new challenges surface every year for material providers, such as the need for more highly abarasion resistant materials with broad operating temperature windows in high pressure steam contact, which is required for certain environments (eg. tar sands).
The industry continues to strive for futher developments and growth in order to save considerable amounts of money and time, and with the many advancements and breakthroughs that occured in the high performance polymers for oil and gas industry, there is still much more yet to be revealed.
