Home Markets Energy Oil & Gas Industry DELIVERING HIGH-PERFORMANCE ALLOYS FOR THE OIL & GAS MARKET Oil and gas customers around the world have come to rely on Materion to provide alloy materials that meet the demands of onshore and offshore exploration, drilling, completion and production. Our solutions deliver excellent quality, consistent reliability and unique property combinations to make them the materials of choice for the oil & gas market. PROVIDING HIGH-PERFORMANCE MATERIALS FOR OIL & GAS APPLICATIONS Materion addresses the oil & gas industry’s problems of corrosion, wear and galling with unique materials solutions, offering required characteristics such as: High strength and fatigue strength at elevated temperatures Anti-galling for non-magnetic drilling Cavitation resistance Chloride stress corrosion cracking resistance High performance photovoltaic connectors For shale wells operating on artificial lift, we engineered the ToughMet® 3 Sucker Rod Couplings to eliminate production interruptions caused coupling-on-tubing wear. When used in problematic wells, the couplings can save operators nearly $100,000 per well per year. ToughMet Sucker Rod Coupling - Fewer Workovers & Increased Production Since 2016, 28 operators have installed sucker rod couplings made of ToughMet® 3 TS95 alloy in more than 900 oil wells located in the Bakken and Permian Basin to mitigate failures caused by coupling-on-tubing wear. In addition to fewer costly workovers, engineers monitoring these wells reported unanticipated performance and well efficiency improvements. To quantify the additional benefits, several operators ran field trials specifically to assess the improvements in well performance after the installation of ToughMet couplings. Read our white paper to see the results of well improvement with the couplings.
