Halliburton wins at SBR Technology Excellence Awards 2024 for pioneering emerging technology in the energy sector

Their project revolutionises the approach to material science in the industry.

Halliburton has been awarded in the Emerging Technology - Energy category at the SBR Technology Excellence Awards 2024, in recognition of its groundbreaking project that has set new benchmarks in predicting and enhancing the reliability and performance of materials used in the energy sector's harsh environments. This innovative project stands out for its development of a comprehensive rubber virtual twin model that revolutionises the approach to material science in the industry.

The project, utilising state-of-the-art computational material science techniques, creates a digital twin that mirrors the real-world material chemistry, structure, and its degradation behaviour under extreme conditions. This digital representation is a leap forward in material simulation, incorporating detailed elements such as polymer, filler, clay, and other components to mimic the exact formulation used in the industry. Through this virtual model, Halliburton accelerates the degradation process digitally, enabling rapid and accurate predictions on material performance across a variety of conditions.

Halliburton’s innovative approach leverages advanced computational techniques, including molecular dynamics, quantum mechanics, and machine learning, to replicate material properties and performance. This digital methodology significantly reduces the reliance on physical testing, which is often expensive, labour-intensive, and time-consuming. The virtual twin model facilitates the exploration of new materials and optimisation of existing ones in ways that traditional trial-and-error methods cannot match.

The virtual twin model has proven its value through the accuracy of its predictions, such as diffusion coefficients for gas and liquid in the material and stress-strain curves of aged elastomers. This virtual experimentation provides a deep understanding of material behaviour under extreme application environments, offering predictive insights that enhance product lifecycle management, regulatory compliance, and safety standards.

The economic impact of this project is profound, offering substantial cost savings, increased efficiency, and fostering innovation across various industries. The ability to design and select materials with precision paves the way for the development of more energy-efficient products, reducing waste and enhancing sustainability.

Halliburton’s project not only contributes to increased customer satisfaction and market competitiveness but also provides a template for future innovations in material science and the wider energy sector. The SBR Technology Excellence Awards 2024 accolade underscores Halliburton's commitment to innovation, effectiveness, and leadership in deploying emerging technologies to tackle the challenges of material reliability and performance in the energy industry.
