A Keighley manufacturer has pledged its support to a local bereavement group with plans to raise £5,000 of funds in 2019. Airedale Chemical chose the Sunbeam Support Group to benefit from its planned fundraising activities this year after it was set up by a close friend of the company’s managing director. The Sunbeam Support Group was formed by midwives at Airedale General Hospital and parents following the lack of ongoing bereavement support in the local area. The Group offers continued support following the loss of a baby through its monthly meetings, bereavement resources, events throughout the year and garden project which is based in the grounds of Airedale Hospital.
The chemical manufacturer has a series of activities planned throughout the year to raise funds for the cause, starting with a golf day to be held later in the summer. Grace Detoeuf, who helped set up the group following the loss of her son Louis, explains: “Since setting up the Sunbeam Support Group in 2016 we have been reliant on donations, fundraising activities and support from businesses.

THE BENEFITS OF CHEMICAL FOAMERS, AND HOW BEST TO USE THEM TO MAXIMISE PRODUCTION

Article | April 14, 2020

Downhole fluid build-up coupled with a drop in reservoir pressure can lead to the rapid decline of gas production rates, and can ultimately result in a well ceasing production. While there are many ways to deliquify a well to maximise production, chemical foamers can be incredibly effective and well worth considering. In this blog post, Kevin Lonie shares some of the benefits of using chemical foamers, and provides insights and advice around how best to use them… “Foamers are a much cheaper option than alternative solutions, such as mechanical lifts, and there is very little risk associated with their usage. If a foamer doesn’t work, it won’t make the well worse - so often we see clients giving them a go before opting for more expensive methods, in the hope that they produce the desired results. And we have seen their success over and over again.”
