Oil & Gas
Oil production is at its highest level in 25 years, at 7.9 million barrels/day. This year is projected to be the largest single year growth of US Oil production dating back to the Drake Oil Well in 1859. Natural Gas Production and Gas Liquids Production also reached record levels in 2012 and are still climbing. We have manufactured over 40,000 ball and seat assemblies for the offshore drilling industry. Valve, ram shaft and other component’s performance is constantly compromised by high temperature, high pressure, high solids and cycles. Our engineers address the specific requirements needed to manage offshore and downhole processes and hand select coatings with those needs in mind. Ball and seat components are manufactured at our ISO 9001:2008 certified facility.
