The Oil and Gas Industry generates trillions of dollars in revenue every year and is broken into three segments – upstream, midstream, and downstream.
The upstream segment locates and drills for raw materials. The midstream segment moves those raw materials to the refineries. The downstream segment refines fuels and then markets and distributes the final product.
All segments rely on high-quality vessels and structures to keep the fuel flowing. Examples include pipelines and tank railcars for crude (unrefined) oil, pipelines and tanker trucks for refined products such as diesel and gasoline, and storage tanks at distribution hubs and at fuel stations.
As with most production facilities, global markets ask the oil and gas industry to produce more and more at a lower cost and with lower emissions. The first step to achieving more production is to improve the uptimes and efficiencies of existing facilities. Becoming corporate and socially responsible is in lock-step with increasing production while being more environmentally conscientious.
An additional challenge for upstream and downstream operations is their equipment’s size, immobility, and location. Enormous oilfield equipment, complex piping systems, and potential off-shore sites create unique challenges in safely maintaining and repairing equipment.
VRC’s High-Pressure Cold Spray is a supersonic particle deposition process that can create coatings and dimensional structures with enhanced corrosion resistance, wear resistance, or electromagnetic interference shielding. It is cost-effective, requiring no heating of the parts and no chemicals, generating a “green” process that meets that corporate responsibility challenge head-on.
VRC Metal Systems’ High-Pressure Cold Spray (HPCS) portability meets the immobility challenge of the Gas and Oil Industry as well, with modular units that easily travel to individual repair sites. There is a benefit to using HPCS for every environment that the oil and gas industry finds itself in:
