Will 2021 Be A Better Year For The Oil Industry?

2020 has been an atrocious year for the Canadian oil industry. It has been the worst year in modern times, and 2021 isn’t going to be drastically different. In the annual forecast released by Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors (CAODC), they expect 2021 to be slightly better. Minor improvements are all that can be expected, unfortunately.

Common questions about pressure gauges

A pressure gauge is an instrument used across many industries, like construction, oil drilling, and for other industrial applications. As the name implies, it’s a tool that helps operators calculate the air pressure at various levels of elevation. Pressure gauges are installed on tower cranes to indicate any hazardous lifting situations.

Analogue Or Digital Pressure Gauges: Which Is Better?

Instrumentation used in critical industrial processes need to provide accurate readings on the gauges for optimum results and safety. Gauges are used to measure pressure, temperature, and flow. These gauges show real time values and monitor fluctuations and are crucial for the day-to-day operation of the plant.

Reasons To Opt For Hydraulic Drilling Rigs

To adapt to extreme environments and locations, oil exploration expeditions require advanced drilling instrumentation.  Stringent safety measures to protect the environment are an additional challenge that oil drilling companies need to meet. Therefore, rig technology has changed considerably over the years. The transition has been made from mechanically powered drilling rigs to hydraulic rigs.

Sensor Calibration And Its Importance

Sensors are widely used in industrial, commercial, and oil drilling applications. When such projects are being developed, these sensors are specified to measure important variables like flow, pressure, weight, temperature, level, etc. These measurements help automate the process, along with making the process control system adjust other variables based on the sensor reading.
