Our Solutions in Oil and Gas Industry

The Oil and Gas sector is understandably classed as being the biggest industry in the world in terms of dollar value. Oil and Gas companies are usually significant contributors to National GDP worldwide and they provide employment to millions of people across the globe. By far, the largest volumes of products of the oil and gas industry are fuel oil and gasoline (petrol).

Uses of our products in this sector

Super duplex steel is often used in the oil and gas industry due to its many benefits:

  • High strength that therefore enables lighter constructions

  • Is relatively maintenance free, reducing life-cycle costs

  • Has very good corrosion resistance, including pitting corrosion resistance and intergranular corrosion

  • Has higher tensile and yield strength

  • Has good weldability

Because of all these, Super Duplex Stainless Steel can regularly be found in piping systems, separators, scrubbers, pumps, manifolds, heat exchangers, flowlines, and storage tanks.

As an example, stainless steel also forms an essential component of many offshore oil rigs and marine environments. Crude oil’s corrosive nature means that stainless steel is a perfect material to contain it, similarly so in sub-sea conditions such as deep-sea drilling where the equipment being used has to be highly durable and resistant to corrosion.

Nickel Alloy and Inconel in the Oil and Gas Industry

As well as Stainless Steel, Nickel Alloy and Inconel are two of the most robust and enduring materials that are also versatile enough to be used within the oil and gas industry. The range of applications Inconel has is vast and it is commonly used in high performing equipment that is required to be reliable even in difficult circumstances. Within the oil & gas industry, it is common to find it in chemical processing and pressure vessels, well pump motor shafts, steam generators and even turbine blades, seals and combustors.
