Action of Thirst-Generating Hormones in Humans

A research conducted at UT Southwestern Medical Center outlines reasons behind the feeling of thirst amongst individuals. The research shows that a certain hormone in the human body triggers the feeling of thirst by acting on the brain and elevating the desire to drink water. These hormones trigger this urge in response to specific forms of nutrient stresses that cause dehydration in the body. In tests and experiments earlier conducted on mice, it was found that the liver hormone FGF21 replaces the desire of the brain for alcohol and sugar with a desire for drinking water.

Premise of Research

The production of FGF21 inside the liver due to the exposure to sugar and blood was already known, but the researchers have also found the mechanism of prevention of dehydration. This happens when the hormone travels through the blood stream to reach the hypothalamus inside the brain and triggers thirst. The pathway traced by FGF21 is unique and different from the thirst classical pathway of the kidneys. It was observed during the research that all kinds of mice, normal as well as the ones that couldn’t produce FGF21 hormone, consumed same amounts of water when given a normal chow diet. However, a diet with low carbs and high fat made normal mice drink more water while there no changes in the drinking patterns of mice that could not produce FGF21 hormone.

Reducing Alcohol Consumption

The research could be an important standpoint to see the response of hormones in humans. Furthermore, the researchers stated that FGF21 could be used as an agent to alleviate alcohol consumption in humans.

Rising Deep-Water Drilling Activities to bolster Coiled Tubing Uptake

San Francisco, California, April 16, 2018: The drive for coiled tubing stems from the intensifying need for cost-effective solutions in oil well intervention operations. The rising adoption of systems for achieving optimal production in a producing oil well is key to growth of the market.

However, stringent regulations on well intervention programs, especially in developed regions, may adversely affect the growth of the coiled tubing market.

Regionally, North America is expected to account for an attractive share of the global market for coiled tubing. The growth is essentially fueled by the rapidly rising exploration activities and substantial shale gas explorations. Asia Pacific will collect substantial revenues in the global market. The growth is supported by the rise in public as well as investments in oil gas exploration programs.

Some of the prominent players operating in the coiled tubing market are Aker Solutions ASA, Baker Hughes, Calfrac Well Services Ltd., C&J Energy Services, Sanjel Corp, CWC Energy Services Corp., and Halliburton Co.

Coiled Tubing Market : Comprehensive Analysis and Future Estimations 2025

Global Coiled Tubing Market: Snapshot 

Coiled tubing is expected to gain a significant traction on account of its efficient capability to support an expandable linear system while keeping the deployment process a reliable and routine operation.

In a recent 30-stage fracturing operation of a Marcellus Shale natural gas well in Pennsylvania, the operator in charge found coiled tubing as an efficient and a quick fix for effectively dealing with a casing integrity problem encountered at the 12th stage. A leaking connection marked at the heel of the well was deemed to be the cause of the problem, which halted the completion of the rest of the 18 stages. Apart from the ability to hold against the pumping pressures of over a whopping 10,000 psi, the solution was also required to work out in an environment of stiff time restrictions.

The workover rig was one of the options considered to resolve the issue. However, high rental costs, logistical obstacles, and limited footprint availability on the mountainside work site discouraged the operator to adopt the workover rig solution. Another option was to run a cement squeeze to separate the exposed part of the wellbore. Unfortunately, the operator did not find this option suitable either, owing to the less reliability of the squeeze to bear the massive pumping pressures and longer time required.

Finally, coiled tubing came to the rescue which supported a wellbore integrity restoration technology which required only 24 hours to complete vital procedures such as pressure testing, installation, and cleanout run. With no drilling out required, the repairing of the parted pipe was in operation as soon as the coiled tubing was removed.

Another operation in Alaska saw the employment of coiled tubing to support a multi-joint expandable liner system in a distant multilateral well.

Global Coiled Tubing Market: Overview

The increasing number of oil fields getting matured and a subsequent decline in the global production of oil volumes are compelling companies in the exploration process to adopt high-performing products. This has escalated the growth of the global coiled tubing market over the past few years. Coil tubing is likely to find its way in tight reserves in the offing due to its high longevity, flexibility, and corrosion resistance. Owing to its numerous advantages such as smaller trip times, contained well pressure, and less labor requirement, the market is expected to witness a significant growth in the near future.
