The global offshore industry is enjoying a welcome return to confidence. A continued increase in demand for hydrocarbons, improvements in exploration and production technology in recent years and more cost-efficient working practices to bring down operation expenditure have led to a greater interest in extreme deep and ultra deepwater plays once again.

As a result, several projects in extreme locations that had previously been shelved or abandoned due to cost constraints are now reaching the final investment decision stage.

When dealing with extreme conditions, operators need to be confident the products they are using can not only withstand the challenges to be faced, but exceed them.

For over 50 years, Sandvik has supplied upstream oil and gas industry materials and engineering solutions in drilling, well completion, subsea infrastructure and well intervention. We provide corrosion resistant control lines, super-duplex umbilical tubing, OCTG and technical support that ensure safer, more efficient and economical production.

In Asia Pacific, our oil and gas headquarters in Subang Jaya, Malaysia, features a service center for end-to-end control line and chemical injection line solutions – from warehousing facilities to plastic extrusion capabilities for flat packs, TEC lines and hydrostatic testing. This means that you have a local service provider with global expertise that provides faster delivery of products and services.

We understand that the development of solutions to overcome extreme conditions is an ongoing process. For us, this means constantly questioning and evaluating the capabilities of our entire product portfolio to make sure it exceeds the toughest demands. Our challenge is to continue to create solutions that set industry standards, enable efficient operations in the most extreme environments and allow our customers to achieve what was previously considered impossible.
