Testing for Energy & Petroleum

The oil industry dominates this industry segment with applications for extremely challenging environments. Oil field equipment, drilling muds, cements and other materials must sustain extreme conditions of temperature, pressure and corrosive chemicals.

Oil and gas transportation presents different challenges including cryogenic environments, saline exposure, creep and shock situations on metals, foams and rubber. Designing for these situations requires high quality material data that accurately reflect the real life situations.

Novel areas in the energy sector include wind and solar. These present different challenges including UV and weathering exposure on plastics, glass and composites. Impact situations, creep and fatigue are important as components and structures are exposed to the extremes in the environment for extended periods of time.
