Oil & Gas

We work with customers, universities, specialist partners, and our own Quicklab R&D to meet and exceed the demands of the Oil & Gas industry.

Oil and natural gas are the world’s main fuel sources and two of the biggest industries in the energy market.

They also play an important role in the world economy. The systems and processes used to make and distribute oil and gas are very complicated, require a lot of money, and must be up-to-date.

In the past, oil and natural gas have been linked, mostly because of how they are made. This is called the “upstream” side of the business. For a long time in the history of the industry, natural gas was seen as a nuisance. Even today, large amounts of natural gas are still burned off in some parts of the world.

Oil & Gas Components – Oil Drill Rig

An oil drill rig is a complicated piece of machinery with dozens of distinct parts.

Drill rigs can be huge, fixed structures or small enough for workers in the field to move by hand or with the help of other tools. Specifications for how they are built require that the materials used can stand up to hard use, heavy loads, and harsh conditions in the environment.


Drilling rigs can be put through a lot of stress and corrosion, especially when drilling for crude oil. This causes a lot of problems during the time they are in use, such as:


  • Acidic fluids can damage the tubing they move through.
  • Crude oil can cause corrosion because it contains chemicals like sulfur and hydrogen sulfide.
  • Mud and seawater can bring in physical and chemical pollutants.
  • During operation, high temperatures can be generated.

Steel is used for most equipment in the Oil & Gas industry, because of its formability and durability, high tensile and yield strength, and superior levels of conductivity, as well as its resistance to corrosion.


Steel alloys are also used in the industry, combining steel with other metals like nickel, chromium, iron, and others for the properties needed, whether the part requires resistance to high temperatures or the corrosion of seawater.
