Oil Field Grade Materials

The oil and gas industry relies on robust and reliable materials to withstand harsh environments and maintain operational integrity. Oil field grade materials are specifically designed and tested to meet these demands. In this web page, we will explore the significance of oil field grade materials, common application considerations, and discuss standards like AED, NACE TM0297, and NORSOK M-710 that govern these materials.

What are Oil Field Grade Materials?

    Oil field grade materials are substances, components, or equipment engineered to withstand the extreme conditions encountered in the oil and gas extraction and processing industry. These materials must be highly durable, corrosion-resistant, and capable of withstanding high pressures and temperatures.
Common Conciderations
    1. Corrosion Resistance
    Materials must resist corrosion caused by exposure to harsh chemicals and environments, preventing equipment failure and costly downtime.

    2. Strength and Toughness
    Materials must exhibit high tensile strength and toughness to withstand the mechanical stresses and loads encountered in drilling, production, and processing operations.

    3. Temperature and Pressure Resistance
    Oil field materials must endure a wide range of temperatures and pressures, from arctic conditions to high-temperature reservoirs.

    4. Chemical Compatibility
    Materials should be compatible with the various chemicals and fluids used in drilling, production, and processing, preventing chemical reactions that could compromise safety and performance.

    5. Regulatory Compliance
    Compliance with industry standards and regulations is essential to ensure safety, environmental responsibility, and operational efficiency.

    6. Longevity
    Materials should have a long service life to reduce maintenance costs and equipment replacement frequency.

Material Options

    1. Advanced Engineering Design (AED) Materials
    AED materials are designed to withstand extreme temperatures and pressures, making them suitable for deep-sea drilling and high-pressure applications.

    2. NACE TM0297 Compliant Materials
    NACE TM0297 materials have undergone specific testing to show the materials performance under high pressure carbon dioxide applications where explosive decompression is a risk. It is common for materials, O-rings, gaskets, & custom molded parts that have undergone NACE TM0297 testing to be considered "anti-explosive decompression" (AED).

    3. NORSOK M-710 Certified Materials
    Similar to NACE, NORSOK M-710 materials have undergone specific testing to show the materials performance under high pressure carbon dioxide applications where explosive decompression is a risk. It is common for materials, O-rings, gaskets, & custom molded parts that have undergone NORSOK M-710 testing to be considered "anti-explosive decompression" (AED). NORSOK M-710 also tests chemical compatibility in sour gas.

    4. Spring Energized Seals & Oil Seals
    Filled PTFE and PEEK polymers are resistant to explosive decompression and are highly effective at a wide range of temperatures when paired with a metalic spring energizer in the form of a Spring Energized Seal or custom oil seal.

    5. Stainless Steel Alloys
    Stainless steel alloys, such as 316 and 316L, are resistant to corrosion and are used in oil field equipment like pipelines, valves, and wellhead components.

    6. High-Strength Carbon Steel
    High-strength carbon steels are utilized in drilling equipment and pipelines due to their excellent mechanical properties and durability.

    7. Exotic Alloys
    Exotic alloys like Inconel and Monel are chosen for their exceptional resistance to high temperatures, corrosive environments, and extreme pressure conditions.

    7. Corrosion-Resistant Coatings
    Coatings such as epoxy and polyurethane are applied to surfaces to provide an additional layer of protection against corrosion.
