Pressure Activation Technology For Downhole Applications By Fike Corporation
A common problem in oil and gas drilling, completion, and production is the failure of proper activation on downhole tools. These failures can result in lost productivity, safety issues, and significant cost to fix the problem. As wells continue to be drilled deeper, encountering higher pressures and temperatures, it is more critical than ever for correct tool activation.
Beyond Orifices For DP Flow Rate Measurements By Greg Livelli and Steve Pagano, ABB Measurement Products
While the orifice is the most common flow meter restriction associated with differential pressure (DP) measurements, several others have found a solid place in process applications.
BP GoM: Next Generation Offshore Fiber By Rob Munier, Tyco Telecommunications, and Kurt Haaland, BP America, Inc.
The deployment of undersea fiber to offshore platforms has been talked about for years. The attractions of near-unlimited bandwidth, low latency, improved reliability, and robustness were expected to trump fiber's perceived high first cost and lack of ubiquity when compared to traditional microwave and satellite solutions.
SCADA systems are undergoing major changes that put increasing pressure on the cost and risk of operating and maintaining remote assets. In critical infrastructure, telemetry and remote SCADA software solutions work together to better transform remote field data into business-relevant information that helps improve and optimize operations while minimizing cost and risk. Schneider Electric's SCADA Expert ClearSCADA provides a cost-effective solution to optimize SCADA functionality, while minimizing development, installation, and operational costs. Learn more.
