Steel is used widely and exhaustively in the oil and gas industry. As a procurement company we are asked on a daily basis to quote for the supply of steel pipeline fittings. The UK and Europe has many excellent manufacturers and distributors of steel pipeline fittings. Worldwide Procurement Service UK Ltd has formed good relationships with suppliers. Pipelines play a huge part in the transportation of oil. Oil production companies have maintenance teams working 24 hours a day on emergency and planned maintenance of pipelines. The list of materials required for the maintenance, improvement and laying of new pipeline is extensive.
Steel fittings are also specified for use within refineries and gas installations. Wherever an energy product needs to be transported, steel in one form or other will be formed to assist in its journey from oil or gas field to refining and onwards to the end users.
Some of the types of fittings we are asked to supply:
- Flanges – raised face, flat face, slip on, weld neck, threaded, RTJ, lap joint
- Spectacle Blinds
- Drip Rings
- T Joints
- Threading needles
The grade or type of steel specified is dependent on where and how the fitting will be used. Some of the types we regularly supply are as follows:
- Carbon Steel
- Stainless Steel
- Forged Steel
Specification/grade of the steel will be typically supplied to Worldwide Procurement Service UK Ltd as follows:
- Carbon Steel ASTM A106 Grade B, ASME/ANSI B16.5 (dimension)
- Forged Steel
- Stainless Steel 316L
Pressure rating will be specified in pounds per square inch, which will in turn determine the dimension of the steel utilised.
We would expect fastenings to appear additionally to the items listed above on a list of materials from an oilfield services company. Steel in some form will be specified in the type of fastening for example stud bolts, hexagon bolts, teflon coated bolts, nuts and washers.
