The Need for Composites Standards in the Oil and Gas Industry

The economic gain from using materials that are lighter, stiffer, stronger and more corrosion resistant than carbon steel in the oil and gas industry is substantial, but the willingness of the industry to accept components fabricated from composites is directly related to the operational risks for that component. As a result, they have currently only Read More…

Composites in Oil and Gas

Composites now are widely recognized in deepwater drilling scenarios, because their ability to stand up to the harsh subsea environment enables oil & gas prospectors to retrieve reserves at greater sea-floor depths. Composites are recognized as an enabling technology in deepwater drilling scenarios, because the materials are able to stand up to the harsh subsea Read More…
