Oil & Gas Industry

oil refinery and tanks

There are many corrosive elements and chemicals throughout the oil and gas processing operation, including sulfur, chlorides, and acids. This means that very few materials can withstand these environments, and even fewer when temperature and pressure are added to the mix. This is where steel comes in, allowing the oil and gas industry to collect, transport, refine, and store without worrying about material failure.


From oil country tubular goods (OCTG) to platforms and jackets to storage tanks and pressure vessels, steel can handle the job and Service Steel Warehouse can supply the steel.

Steel Applications in the Oil & Gas Industry

Oil Storage Tanks

Steel’s reputation for durability and reliability is a key reason why it’s used in oil storage tanks. Usually made from galvanized steel, the tanks won’t rust and can last decades outside exposed to the elements. On the inside, steel’s resistance to corrosion keeps it from being eaten away by the oil or chemicals inside it as well.

Oil Country Tubular Goods

Used both onshore and offshore, OCTG are made from steel for many of the same reasons the material is used throughout the oil and gas industry. Galvanized or stainless steel won’t rust when taken offshore for work, and all steel types have the strength and durability to withstand the forces that are common in drilling, transporting, processing, and more.

Structural Components

The infrastructure around oil and gas also relies on steel to provide dependable and efficient support. For the same reasons that other industries primarily use steel for structural and framework applications, the oil and gas industry is built on the same strong foundation.

Carrying oil or gas from the wells to the gathering stations can stretch across long distances in harsh terrain and environments. As one of the only viable materials for the job, steel accomplishes this because of its cost-effectiveness in the large quantities required for these projects as well as its strength and durability.
