Handling the heat

March 3, 2012

The recently launched Pelagic CLEO high temperature subsea control fluid is hailed as breakthrough technology by its developer Niche Products. Developed to bridge the technology gap between water-based fluids and the extreme offshore HP/HT developments anticipated in future, the new fluid is said to offer excellent stability at high temperatures and be capable of maintaining temperatures in excess of 250°C for a project lifetime.

‘In addition, with the potential future requirements for closed loop systems in some sectors, this environmental oil is acceptable for direct discharge to sea,’ said Niche Products technical director Tom McKechnie. He added: ‘What’s more, it is designed to offer all the technical properties of traditional oil-based fluids in closed loop systems. This product will assist the production of oil in subsea control systems at temperatures never seen before, all while causing minimal environmental impact.’
