The 9th international conference Element Oilfield Engineering with Polymers 2014 organised with AMI will be held in London at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel from 21-23 October 2014. There is a Welcome Cocktail Reception and exhibition on the first evening followed by a 2-day technical programme.
This well-established event, formerly the MERL conference (the Materials Engineering Research Laboratory is now Element), examines the role of thermoplastics, elastomers and composite materials as components in the demanding oil and gas environment. As wells are worked in increasingly hostile conditions of extreme heat and cold, combined with exposure to chemicals, gases and pressure, the performance of all materials and parts is critically important. The industry needs high quality and high standards, with assessment of life time to maximise reliability, while the R&D divisions of the major operators and their suppliers are constantly looking for the ultimate durable materials for applications ranging from seals and sealing to insulation, flow lines, risers and coatings.
Element Oilfield Engineering with Polymers 2014 provides an international forum for advanced technical discussions and offers unparalleled networking opportunities for oilfield operators, contractors and their suppliers.
The event will take place on 21-23 October 2014, in London, UK.
