As a result of global industrialisation and increasing mobility, the demand for crude oil and natural gas continues to grow. As the amount of oil and gas produced increases, so too does the need for transportation and further processing facilities.
In order to meet global demand for crude oil, special processes are now being used in order to extract additional crude oil from reservoirs that have already been exploited. These processes go beyond primary and secondary production where 30 - 40 % of the oil in place is extracted. Given the extreme conditions encountered in the oil and gas industry, high-quality, reliable equipment is essential.
MARINE, SHIPBUILDING, OFFSHORE
The systems and equipment used in shipping and on board offshore facilities are exposed to severe climatic conditions, harsh environments and extremely high mechanical loads. Even when faced with these demanding conditions, the electronic pressure and level transmitters must remain stable and continue functioning reliably.
