To drive brand adoption of a natural-based plastic by major retailers, G&S created a proactive strategy to capitalize on an anticipated market trend … before the trend made headlines. Realizing the potential of a “bushels v. barrels” campaign, the agency developed the angle and waited for the right opportunity. When the price of oil broke a predetermined milestone, the team sprung into action, targeting the nation’s premier media outlets. The campaign was a smash hit, garnering a four-page spread in Forbes’ most-read issue, front-page coverage in the Los Angeles Times, a cover feature on Wall Street Journal Marketplace, and a three-minute feature on CNN.

Not All Frac Sand is Created Equal
Frac sand is the most commonly used proppant. The term “proppant” is used because it literally props openfractures enabling the oil or gas to flow out. Without proppant, there is no hydraulic fracturing, and without hydraulic fracturing there is no opening or stimulation of tight oil and gas plays. E&P (exploration and production) companies pump proppants based on various characteristics with the most important one being the proppant permeability-conductivity. Proppant permeability is a measure...
Techniques for Oil in Water Analysis
The people responsible for conducting oil in water measurements understand thatthe measurement can be quite challenging. Wastewater from different sources cancontain many different types of hydrocarbons, each with different chemical make-ups.On top of the lack of chemical uniformity in different oils, there has been a largevariety of methods developed to quantify the oil in the wastewater. While none of thefollowing methods is perfect, each will have its own advantages and disadvantagesfor oil in water analysis.Oil...

Case study - TPH in produced sand for overboard discharge
Customer uses TD-500D to measure TPH concentrations in produced sand on an offshore oil platform in Malaysia. The sand contains high levels of crude oils and must be treated on-site prior to dumping it overboard. The TD-500D was calibrated to Sitelab`s TPH calibration kit, product CAL-056. Methanol solvent was used to extract the samples. For comparison, samples were also extracted in OIW surfactant, available from Turner Designs Hydrocarbon Instruments, Inc. TPH results were very similar.
