Sandvik, a developer and producer of stainless steels and other high-performance materials for the oil and gas industry, showcased its products to more than 90,000 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) attendees in Houston from May 1-4, 2017.
Along with a reputation for innovation, Sandvik is well known for the reliability of their high-performance materials for demanding applications. Recently, stainless steel, seamless umbilical tubes made using Sandvik SAF 2507™ super-duplex were recovered from the Šsgard Field in the Norwegian Sea after 17 years in service. After thorough testing, results found no presence of corrosion or material degradation, highlighting the robustness of Sandvik’s materials to withstand such challenging conditions in the oil and gas industry.
At OTC Houston, Sandvik showcased its range of corrosion-resistant materials and technology, including umbilicals made from Sandvik SAF 2507™ super-duplex and the Sandvik Welding App. The Welding App provides welding engineers and purchase managers with a range of useful information added with instant support via a mobile phone.
