Merl Oilfield Engineering with Polymers 2012 provides an international forum for oilfield operators, contractors and their suppliers to meet and discuss the latest developments in application requirements and materials R&D. This event will build on the 2010 conference, which attracted hundreds of delegates from 23 countries. The technical programme for the 2012 event will reflect the current challenges and solutions for the use of polymeric materials in oilfield engineering. Current themes include:
handling of supercritical CO2, operating in extreme environments (arctic conditions, HPHT, sour fluids etc.), the increasing use composite materials,
development of new materials,
rapid gas decompression resistance,
qualification testing,
long-term reliability and the development of industry standards.

Elastomers, thermoplastics and composite materials play a vital role in many critical applications in the oilfield such as coatings, insulation, pipes (bonded and flexible), hoses, seals, flexible joints and bearings, inflatable tools, umbilicals, risers, blow out preventers etc. The industry challenge is to operate safely and reliably in increasingly remote and hostile environments. Key to this is research and develoment, design, qualification and operational experience.

MERL Oilfield Engineering with Polymers 2012 provides a unique opportunity to get up to date information on industry trends and to network with experts from oilfield operators, contractors, equipment and component manufacturers and materials suppliers.
