HOUSTON -- MacDermid Offshore Solutions has won an OTC Spotlight Award for its subsea hydraulic control fluid, Oceanic XT900, which can reach a downhole temperature to 220 ºC (428 ºF).
XT900 was tested for six months at 220 ºC and is qualified to ISO 13628-6 Annex C, the control fluids standard, reports MacDermid. This is an extension of the Oceanic HW (high water) product line.
The value of the high-temperature resistant fluid is in seeking new production in deeper, ultra high-temperature targets. MacDermid points out.
