The 2nd AMI international conference on Oil & Gas Non-Metallics 2016 took place in London at the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel from 12th-14th December 2016. There was a Welcome Cocktail Reception and accompanying exhibition on the first evening followed by a 2-day technical programme.
While steel provides the main structural component in oil and gas equipment, pipelines and platforms, non-metallics, principally polymers, make up vital components that must be properly specified and qualified to avoid major problems and minimise risk. Typical applications of non-metallics are: composite pipes, tanks, cable insulation, seals, adhesives, coatings, insulation, packers, hoses, liners and blow out preventers. As operating conditions change, so these components must be re-examined for performance including behaviour under high pressures at deep levels; chemical resistance on exposure to drilling fluids, sour gas and pressurised CO2; and heat stability in HPHT environments. The supply chain must understand the quality control requirements of the industry.
AMI’s Oil & Gas Non-Metallics 2016 offered a technical forum for oil and gas operators, engineers, contractors and material and equipment suppliers to debate the use of non-metallic materials in critical applications.
