This fifth High Performance Elastomers conference marked the first conference with a special focus on oilfield applications.Political pressures and environmental concerns have made new oil deposits more difficult and expensive to find in recent years. In response to a decreasing supply of oil, the extraction of oil from new and mature reserves has called for high performance materials with more and more extreme service temperature ranges, increased resistance to harsh oils and chemicals and the ability to withstand higher pressures in down-hole environments. High performance elastomers and thermoplastics have been constantly evolving to meet these needs and are now found in just about everything from subsea trees, well heads and umbilicals to piping and chemical processing plants. Despite these advances, continued research, development and qualification is still required to reduce the need for costly intervention and to respond to new challenges. These proceedings cover all the presentations from the conference which was developed for operators, contractors, equipment and component suppliers, material suppliers and research organisations involved with polymers and their use in oil and gas applications.
