OPEC+ is likely to stick to its plan for a small increase in oil production in May despite a surge in oil prices caused by the Ukraine crisis and calls from consumer countries such as the United States for more supply.
Several oil consumers, including the US, have urged producers to boost output further, for the crude price has hit its highest level since 2008 of more than $139 this month. But major OPEC producers including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates did not raise their output targets, and other countries like Russia avoided talking about the subject of Ukraine.
OPEC+ is made up of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and the oil-producing Allies which is led by Russia. Since August 2021, OPEC+ has been sticking to its plan to increase production by 400,000 b/d per month, which will rise slightly to 432,000 b/d from May 1st.
This increase did not mean OPEC+’s concession to consumer countries demanding more oil, but an outcome of an internal recalculation of reference production levels, raising quotas for Saudi Arabia, Russia, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait.
The supply and prices of many other products in global market like the Cement Foaming Agent will continue to be influenced by the oil supply shortage.
Cement foaming agent is the core material of foamed concrete. Choosing a suitable cement foaming agent is the key to producing qualified products.
1. Fully understand the type of cement foaming agent
Different types of foaming agents have different foaming power and foam stability, so there are certain limitations in the use process. Only after knowing the type of foaming agent can you understand its performance characteristics. When choosing a foaming agent, you can have a target.
2. Carefully master the technical indicators of foaming agents
The main indicators to measure the quality of foaming agents include foaming power, foam toughness, and bleeding volume. The foaming power reflects the foaming ability of the foaming liquid, which can be expressed by the foaming height and the foaming multiple. The higher the foaming height and the larger the foaming multiple, the stronger the foaming power of the foaming agent.
3. Carefully understand the use of foaming agent
The foaming agent on the market generally has a relatively high concentration, and when used, it needs to be diluted with a certain proportion of water to form a foaming liquid, and then the foaming liquid is foamed. The concentration of the foaming liquid is closely related to the foaming effect. Too high or too low a concentration will affect the foaming effect. Only with a suitable concentration can a high foaming ratio and high-quality foam be obtained.
Foaming agent production characteristics
1. The foaming speed should be appropriate, too fast or too slow will affect the quality of concrete.
2. The diameter of the generated hydrogen bubbles should be small and evenly dispersed. Especially when the cement slurry is poured into the injection mold under the full volume state, it needs to be evenly dispersed to ensure the quality of the injection mold.
3. The setting and solidification of cement shall not be affected when gas is generated. If the setting of cement is delayed, the strength of the cement will decrease or abnormal cement setting will occur.
