Valve Companies Urged to Comment by Aug. 30 on Proposed Export License Requirements

New export license requirements for valves are close to implementation in an international forum. If they move forward, a change will be implemented in U.S. export control rules. The proposed change could significantly expand export license requirements for multiple international shipments for certain valve manufacturers. The principal international group that establishes which valves need export licenses and which don’t is seriously contemplating an expansion of the list of valves that would need licenses prior to export to most international destinations. The new rules are not in place yet so there is still a chance to get your company’s comments to the Commerce Department regarding the advisability of U.S. policymakers agreeing to this new control language.

If you have comments about the proposed rule change, please contact Eric McClafferty at 202.342.8841 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  MORE

Advanced Sealing Technologies

The market’s predominant reliance on packing to address fugitive emission needs is mostly due to end users’ lack of exposure and training on what metal bellows sealing technology can do. Regardless of design or type, all packing is subject to a gradual wear that starts with an initially acceptable leakage rate that will worsen with each stroke. In the alternative, metal bellows can meet the extended temperature range while outlasting and outperforming packing systems. They are pressure-tight, resistant to temperature and corrosion, require no maintenance, reliable, able to achieve long life, and provide a low life-cycle cost. MORE

Recycling Fracking Wastewater

A major challenge associated with the exploration and production of unconventional oil and gas is the copious amounts of water needed during this process. One proven system that benefits from being mobile with relatively low operating costs for onsite processing uses chemical coagulant, or CC, along with dissolved air floatation or DAF. This CC/DAF system has the ability to take the contaminated flow back water created by the fracking process, eliminate most all of the suspended solids and eliminate about 99% of the bacteria, producing onsite reusable frack water. This process conserves water and can create a meaningful economic savings to oil and gas operators. MORE


Get Ready: 2014 Market Outlook

As it did at the 2013 Market Outlook Workshop, the boom in natural gas dominated discussions at this year’s event held in San Diego, Aug. 8-9 and attendees were once again buoyed by relatively positive messages from all of the speakers.

While Alan Beaulieu of the Institute for Trend Research stated we are still in recovery mode, he repeated his warning from last year: There will be another mild recession in the latter part of 2014. In his second appearance at the Market Outlook, Kevin Geraghty of NV Energy said little growth is expected in the North American power market while Richard Ranger of the American Petroleum Institute pointed out that it is not just shale gas, but also shale oil that is booming right now. Harvey Bernstein of McGraw Hill Construction said the biggest percentage of growth in non-residential construction starts will be in “green” building; geothermal, greywater recycling and new HVAC systems will be among the opportunities for valve manufacturers. As for the hydrocarbon processing business, it is poised for a revival as is the chemical industry in the U.S. MORE
