Trelleborg Receives Design Certification for Type 3 Clamps

January 2018, Vol. 245, No. 1

Trelleborg’s offshore operation in Skelmersdale, England, has been certified for the design of its Type 3 Clamp under the American Petroleum Institute (API) specification for flexible pipe ancillary equipment (API 17L1 Ed. 1 2013). This is an important milestone, as the full suite of qualification requirements relating to the design methodology of Trelleborg’s clamps and distributed buoyancy modules (DBM) is now complete. The Type 3 Clamp is a design primarily comprising of a syntactic foam clamp body split in to a number of segments, an upgraded titanium tensioning system and high tenacity straps. Typically used...

Pipeline Connection Installed in Australia

January 2018, Vol. 245, No. 1

The drilling rig is 250 tons of pulling force led to early completion of a complex project. In just three months, Australian drilling contractor Dunstans Construction Group installed a 35-mile (700-meter) pipeline in Anglesea, and a 250-ton HDD rig from Herrenknecht played a key role in the achievement. The construction crew built a sea outfall with the machine and pulled in the pipeline all the way back to the local water treatment plant. In August 2015, a large cliff segment collapsed in the Australian state of Victoria, resulting in an acute need for action. Falling...

U.S. to Dominate Oil Markets After Biggest Boom in World History

January 2018, Vol. 245, No. 1

The U.S. will be a dominant force in global oil and gas markets for many years to come as the shale boom ushers in the biggest supply surge in history, the International Energy Agency predicted. By 2025, the growth in American oil production will equal that achieved by Saudi Arabia at the height of its expansion, and increases in natural gas will surpass those of the former Soviet Union, the agency said in its annual World Energy Outlook. The boom will turn the U.S., still among the biggest oil importers, into a net exporter of...

The Hurdles Never Seem to End for Keystone XL

January 2018, Vol. 245, No. 1

On Dec. 19, Nebraska regulators denied TransCanada’s request to amend its route application, a potential setback for the company as it seeks to head off legal challenges. The Nebraska Public Service Commission (PSC) issued an approval for the line in late November, removing what appeared to be the last big regulatory obstacle for the long-delayed project, which has been backed by President Trump. But the commission’s approval was not for the route TransCanada had singled out in its application. Instead, the commission approved an alternative route that shifts it closer to an existing pipeline right-of-way...

Gulf Coast Likely Natural Gas Export Hub for Years to Come

January 2018, Vol. 245, No. 1

The U.S. Gulf Coast is expected to be a crude oil, natural gas and LNG export hub for years to come even as supply, demand and geopolitical swings shift market dynamics, industry consultants said at a recent conference. At the heart of the forecast is the fact that U.S, supplies are abundant and cheap, and billions of dollars of new infrastructure is being added to link those resources to overseas destinations, particularly in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and South America. Mexico, too, has been heavily reliant on U.S. LNG and pipeline gas from the...

Greater Understanding of Flexible Pipes Needed

January 2018, Vol. 245, No. 1

Since the first flexible pipes came into operation in the North Sea, they have acquired a mixed reputation. While recognized as an essential piece of technology that makes key operations possible in a way that fixed pipe cannot support, they are still seen, rather more widely than is perhaps deserved, as a more risky option that is prone to greater failure rates. To understand more about the reality of flexible pipe deployments in the global oil and gas industry, and to separate persistent beliefs from empirical fact, the Sureflex Joint Industry Project (JIP) started a...

Gas Industry Looks Toward Long Haul Amid Stagnant Prices

January 2018, Vol. 245, No. 1

The prevailing thinking within the natural gas industry appears to be that the low-price environment is here to stay, prompting more players to pursue a strategy designed to optimize current assets while cutting costs rather than waiting for a recovery. This is according to the newly released Black & Veatch (B&V) report, 2017 Strategic Directions: Natural Gas Industry Report, which examines how companies are planning for long-term sustainability amid rising supplies. Maximizing performance from existing assets was cited by 65% of those polled as the highest priority within organizations hoping to maintain stable earnings. “Solid...

China Expanding its Oil and Gas Pipeline Network

January 2018, Vol. 245, No. 1

China has vowed to further strengthen its oil and gas pipeline network during the next decade, in an attempt to further boost the clean fuel’s share in the country’s energy mix. By 2025, the country’s oil and gas pipeline network is expected to reach 240,000 kms, with natural gas pipelines reaching 123,000 km, according to the nation’s top economic regulator. According to the National Development and Reform Commission, China now has 112,000 km of oil and gas pipelines, which means the country will need to build another 128,000 km of pipeline in the next few...

Are Natural Gas Prices Ready to Explode?

January 2018, Vol. 245, No. 1

American natural gas prices are at their lowest since February. As I write this in mid December, Henry Hub is off 11 cents to $2.79 per thousand cubic feet (or million BTUs), having lost 8.8% in value for the week and 12% for the month. The reason is simple: overall demand is coming in lower than the same time in 2016. But that’s not going to last for much longer. There is a major catalyst in the natural gas market that could soon send prices through the roof in 2018. Natural Gas Price Squeeze The...

Tool Offers Option for Detecting Corrosion

January 2018, Vol. 245, No. 1

America’s oil and gas pipelines travel 2.5 million miles through mountains, forests, wetlands and urban areas. Monitoring such a vast network isn’t easy. Nearly half of all pipeline incidents reported in the U.S. since 2002 were caused by malfunctioning equipment, construction flaws and other technical problems – most largely hidden from view and difficult to detect. Historically, pipeline companies in the oil and gas sector use high-tech, complex leak detection systems that measure hydraulic data and count on aerial surveys and other measures to ensure that their pipelines work efficiently and safely. All too common...
