By Rebecca Gurk on Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

offhsore-drillingExploration and production in harsh Arctic and ultra-deep-water environments requires high levels of expertise in materials engineering, welding technology development, and structural integrity assessment to ensure safe operation. Advancing Technology to Safely Access Fossil Fuels in Challenging Environments – An EWI Response discusses EWI’s focus on advancing materials joining technology to facilitate access to these largely untapped resources. This paper by EWI Technology Director Tom McGaughy also discusses how the EWI Strategic Technology Committee for Oil & Gas (STC) is ensuring that our internally funded research is meeting industry needs, and describes EWI’s participation in this year’s International Offshore and Polar Engineering (ISOPE) Conference.
