Global lubricants supplier Castrol Offshore will present its white paper “A New Environmental Lubricant Supports Key Subsea Boosting and Compression Technology”, as part of the Subsea Processing and Boosting session at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 29-31 October 2013.
Castrol’s technical experts Chris Morrissey and John Morris, in partnership with Anders Brunvold from OneSubsea™, have prepared an exciting presentation which will take place at 16:05pm on Tuesday 29th October. Delegates will learn how Castrol has been developing its lubricant portfolio to meet both the performance and environmental requirements of the latest high performance subsea boosting pumps and wet gas compressors.
Castrol will highlight how its technical expertise has overcome the challenges associated with developing a high performance subsea lubricant, which must cope with increasing processing temperatures, higher pressures and higher shaft rotational speeds – in line with the latest exacting environmental standards.
Chris Morrissey comments, “OTC Brazil provides a fantastic platform for us to share our knowledge with the wider industry and we will be taking the opportunity to highlight key considerations in the development process, including testing long term thermal stability, electrical insulation, load carrying properties and water contamination management. As part of the process, we have devised methods that go beyond industry testing standards, which allows us to provide enhanced reliability assurance and greatly reduced operational risk”.
