Researchers Work on Development of Materials that are Ductile in Arctic Conditions

Researchers Work on Development of Materials that are Ductile in Arctic Conditions

Studies reveal that 13% of remaining oil and 30% of remaining gas reserves are located around the Arctic regions, causing the oil industry to move north to lay claims on it. This would mean producing oil and gas between 40-60° below zero. Therefore, one of the current key requirements is the speedy development of materials that can resist these extreme conditions. [More]
