Offshore Innovations: Powering The Oil & Gas Industry with Polymers

Enhancing your technology with Engineered Solutions

In the demanding world of Oil & Gas, stakeholders and technology producers assess many factors to launch a project. For each project to be delivered successfully, the subsea pipeline equipment performance is vital.

Whether our clients are involved in shallow or deep-water pipeline installation, drilling, well construction, product extraction, deep water exploration, or asset maintenance, the need is ever evolving. Therefore, we collaborate with key market influencers to enhance technological performance and efficiencies, focusing on safety, minimising risk, reducing downtime and maintenance needs, and reducing equipment weight.

The Nylacast team is split between the three brand solutions:

  • Nylacast Engineered Products: Cast Nylon and other engineering Polymer solutions
  • Supergrip: Polyurethane Solutions 
  • Pipeline Engineering: Pipeline pigging and flow assurance products

Each team member has ample experience in the industry solving complex challenges. We confidently consult on projects to examine the design, assess application performance when operating under stress and share our expertise on engineering polymer suitability for application.

Industry Solutions

Nylacast delivers a range of advantages for the Oil & Gas sector, encompassing technical support in design and material selection, cost efficiency, durability, and safety. These key benefits include:

Cost Saving Lower whole life costs are achieved in addition to increased efficiency through reduced frictional losses and lower power requirements.  
Increased Safety Low weight results in lighter loads being handled by personnel during installation and servicing, eliminating the need for lifting equipment.  
Corrosion Resistance

Corrosion resistant materials technology protects against the arduous environments.

Wear Reduction Low friction materials technology results in high resistance to wear and abrasion when in application.  
Maintenance Reduction Self-lubrication and corrosion resistance results in increased efficiency through lower whole life costs and longer machine running times.  
Low Weight Nylacast Engineered Products are typically 1/7th the weight of an equivalent steel product, helping to reduce overall equipment weight.  
Self Lubrication

Reduced and often eliminated need for additional and costly grease and lubricants through the use of low friction materials technology.

Custom Solutions

Engineered products custom developed for specific application need from initial chemistry to end product.
