Collaboration between US company Blueshift, the University of Strathclyde and the Oil & Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC) has helped to accelerate the development of a new aerogel product with applications in oil and gas pipelines.

Aerogels are the world's lightest solid materials, composed of up to 99.98% air by volume.

Within the oil and gas industry the development of cleaner and more durable aerogel blankets will improve insulation for deep-sea pipe-in-pipe oil and gas pipelines by reducing installation costs, improving pipeline compression resistance, reducing the amount of steel in pipeline constructions, and consequently increasing oil and gas flow and assurance.
