Oil & Gas Industry

The oil and gas industry entails the exploration, extraction, refining, transporting and marketing petroleum products such as fuel oil and gasoline (petrol). Oil accounts for a large percentage of the world’s energy consumption, ranging from a low of 32% for Europe and Asia, to a high of 53% for the Middle East. Petroleum is vital to many industries with petroleum as the raw material for many chemical products, including pharmaceuticals, fertilizers, pesticides, solvents and plastics. 

Industry and megatrends

The exploration aspects of the oil & gas is both demanding and challenging and the range of products and equipment used required high performance and durability. Components such as risers, wellheads, Christmas tree system, BOP, jack-up rigs, flow lines, etc. are continually exposed to environment erosion and wear.

As such, the expectations of high performance technologies to manufacture and repair the components are always high and ongoing.

Dura-Metal supported the industry with the introduction of hardfacing technologies using welding and thermal spray methods. The intent of hardfacing is to enhance the component parts’ profiles while as the same time, maintaining their performance in the production conditions. Our product range includes welding and coating equipment and consumables as well as product development on stainless steels, high-strength low-alloy and non-ferrous materials (copper, nickel, aluminum, titanium). In addition, Dura-Metal plays a vital role in joint development of parts for the various Oil & Gas industries’ applications.
