Greene, Tweed To Present at Oil & Gas Polymer Engineering Texas 2016
Houston (June 2016) – Greene, Tweed announces that it will be a presenter at Oil & Gas Polymer Engineering Texas 2016, an international conference for oil and gas operators, contractors, equipment manufacturers, researchers and industry suppliers. The 2nd annual industry event is organized by Applied Market Information LLC (AMI), a leading supplier of plastics consultancy and information services to the global plastics industry.
This year, the conference will be held June 14-15 at the Hilton Houston Post Oak in Houston, Texas. The event provides a forum for attendees to discuss the latest developments in the use of non-metallic materials in the harsh conditions of oil and gas drilling and transportation, including new challenges that are arising in unconventional gas reservoirs.
On Tuesday, June 14, Greene, Tweed will present “New Frontiers for High Performance Thermoplastics in Oilfield Applications”. Presenting will be Burak Bekisli, Ph.D., Engineering Supervisor for Product Development and Testing.
PEEK and other various polyketones have been commonly used in extremely demanding oilfield applications, mostly due to their high thermal and chemical stability and excellent mechanical properties at high temperatures. With proven performance and advances in technology, interest in using this class of materials for relatively newer applications continues to grow at a fast pace.
There is also growing interest in learning more about these materials’ lesser known properties, such as electrical insulation capabilities in high temperature-high voltage applications. Bekisli will discuss these properties and present case studies featuring polyketones that require highly varied and unique material properties based on the different oilfield applications in which they’re used. Particular focus will be given to the properties and use of Arlon® 3000 XT, a modified PEEK with higher temperature capabilities and the newest member of Greene, Tweed’s polyketone family.
