Gas To Liquids (GTL) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
The rapid industrial development has led to the increased demand for the conventional sources of energy. However, the limited presence of these sources put an extra burden on the demand supply gap. As the population continues to grow, the conventional sources of energy must be used more efficiently, and alternative sources are needed to close the demand and supply gap. Gas to liquids (GTL) technology converts the methane rich gases into more economical and cleaner synthetic fuels. The increase in energy consumption coupled with the environmental regulations related to the clean fuel...
Degasser Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth And Forecast 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Burgeoning energy demand along with increasing drilling activities around the world is expected to boost the demand for the global degasser market. Degassers are used to remove entrained gases, including corrosive oxygen and hydrogen sulfide from the drilling fluids which could otherwise form bubbles. The market for degasser is likely to increase on account of increasing applications of degassers in removing bubbles enveloped and entrapped by a liquid film. Increased focus on deep sea reserves is likely to accelerate growth in the global degasser market. The global market for...
Electric Submersible Pump Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Electric submersible pump (ESP) or sub pump is a device having hermetically sealed motor that is coupled to the pump body. The entire system is submerged into the fluid to be pumped. Submersible pumps are more efficient than jet pumps as they push fluid to the surface whereas jet pump pulls the fluid. Moreover these pumps prevent pump cavitation that is cause by high elevation difference between pump and the fluid surface.  The electric submersible pump systems are one of the most effective artificial lift methods of pumping fluids to the surface. They are widely used in the...
