Many countries’ economic development is based on the steel, oil, and gas industry. This industry is the source not only for employment but also it is essential for the economic operation and evolution on a worldwide and local level, as it offers progress and value.

The oil and gas industry includes exploration, extraction, refining, transportation and commerce of oil products. Oil is a big percentage of the worldwide energy consumption, as well as being necessary for other industries, as it represents raw materials for unaccountable chemical products that include dissolvents, fertilizers, plastics, pharmaceuticals and pesticides.

Oil is a mix of hydrocarbons with Sulphur, Oxygen and Nitrogen in variable quantities. It originates from a raw material formed of living aquatic, animal and vegetable remains.

Steel and its connection to Oil and Gas

The steel industry has a very tight relationship with oil and gas as steel is fundamental for this industry to develop. Steel is present in all of the transformation stages, this means, from oil and gas extraction, passing by transportation, until final consumption. Steel is a material that connects with the oil industry throughout its structures.

Thanks to steel, there is the chance of drilling the layer of the rock that covers the natural deposits and oil pits, as well as to transport the material. Tubes, platforms and steel structures must be built with the goal of sorting geographic and environmental difficulties for the extraction of oil and gas. Qualities such as corrosion resistance and the capacity to handle external pressure make steel the perfect material for infrastructure development.

At DINCO, design, engineering and 3D Modeling contribute to the development of cutting-edge infrastructure, as it helps the oil and gas industry. Specialized plate work for such industry is part of DINCO’s value offered not just to the oil and gas industry, but to others such as mining, construction and transformation industry.
