Stainless steel for oil & gas industry
Advanced materials for harsh conditions
The scale of projects in the oil and gas industry is massive and the production chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Though oil is not corrosive in itself, production takes place in harsh and highly corrosive environments. Today stainless steels – especially duplex – tends to replace traditional carbon steel in many applications. The benefits – superior corrosion resistance, excellent mechanical properties and significant cost savings are compelling, both for topside construction and applications for production fluids.
