TRELLEBORG, Sweden—Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will introduce a range of sealing materials, developed to meet the demands of accessing unconventional wells.
The company said it will unveil the "sophisticated" subsea sealing technology at the Subsea Expo Conference & Exhibition in Aberdeen in February. Called XploR, the sealing materials comprise a range of advanced elastomers especially developed for oil and gas applications, each featuring low compression set characteristics.
The materials are said to exhibit superior methanol resistance and optimal chemical resistance for enhanced oil recovery applications, along with increased high temperature capabilities.
The XploR grades include HNBR materials that exhibit "exceptional" low temperature sealing performance making them suitable for use within high pressure, low temperature applications.
