|Published: December 4, 2015||Content info:||
The polymer industry is trying to increase the lifetime of the assets associated with recovery, production and processing by providing corrosion resistant materials. The Future of High Performance Polymers for Oil and Gas to 2020 forecasts a marginal decline in the demand for high performance polymers over the next couple of years, with a return to more healthy levels of growth from 2018 onwards. The three biggest national oil producers are Saudi Arabia, Russia and the US, who collectively account for around 37% of global production. However, as global energy requirements increase, the need to exploit deeper reserves means that operating temperatures can now be as high as 315oC and pressures which can exceed 3,000 bars.
The Future of High Performance Polymers for Oil and Gas to 2020 is based on in-house primary research- supported by extensive industry data. Primary research involved interviews with key industry contacts across global locations, and was supplemented by information extracted from company websites, trade journals and conference proceedings. Secondary research was based on a literature review of the market and company reports in addition to magazine and journal abstracts. Most of the background data on the oil and gas industry was based on data published by BP and the International Energy Agency.
