Drill Collars Market in the Middle East 2015-2019

Drill collars are an essential part of the drill string. They form the lowest component of the drill string. Drill collars are heavy, thick-walled steel pipes with threaded connections at both ends. The end with an external thread is known as the male end, whereas the end with an internal thread is known as the female end. The basic purpose of a drill collar is to provide the necessary weight for drilling purposes. Drill collars are machined out of solid steel bars as per API specifications. They are manufactured from standard steel (usually plain carbon steel) or a non-magnetic alloy of steel and copper or other non-magnetic alloys. The bars of solid steel are bored from one end to the other to provide passage for drilling fluids. There are usually two types of drill collar: slick and spi......

Global Electric Transformer Market 2015- 2019

Electric transformers are special devices used to step-up and step-down voltage in transmission and distribution applications. Transformers can be divided into two types: power transformers and distribution transformers. Power transformers are used in the high voltage transmission network as voltage step up devices. They operate at full load. Distribution transformers are used to distribute electric power at low voltages. They operate at lesser loads during a major part of the day. One of the major technical differences between power and distribution transformers is that power transformers' primary winding is always connected in star and the secondary winding in delta, while distribution transformers' primary winding is connected in delta and the secondary winding in star.

Global Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Market 2015-2019

FPSO is a type of floating tank unit used by the offshore oil and gas industry to collect the oil or gas produced from nearby platforms or subsea templates, process them, and store them until the oil or gas can be offloaded onto a shuttle tanker or exported via a pipeline. These systems come in a variety of sizes, shapes, production capacities, and costs. They range from relatively small units with 30,000 bpd processing plants to mega units capable of processing more than 250,000 bpd. Most units are ship shape, but there are few cylindrical FPSOs also. Capex for an FPSO can range from less than $200 million to more than $2 billion, depending on production plant capacity, design life, operating environment, and other factors. The analysts forecast global floating production storage and o......

Global Biolubricant Market 2015-2019

The term biolubricants refers to all lubricants that are nontoxic as well as biodegradable. The rapid depletion of crude oil reserves and issues related to energy conservation and environmental protection have put an emphasis on the development of renewable, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly industrial fluids, such as biolubricants. Biolubricants have a minimum impact on human health and aquatic environment. Lubricants are a key element for industrial and transport applications and more than 95% of the lubricants market is dominated by the low-cost mineral oils. Around 30% of these mineral-based lubricants inevitably end up in the ecosystem and are harmful for environment. Hence, biolubricants being biodegradable are preferred over mineral-based lubricants in terms of environment......
