Case studies in the oil and gas industry

At Ensinger, we have worked on a large number of different projects in the oil and gas industry, using a wide range of materials. Read about some of the projects we have completed here.
Electrical connectors

Electrical Connectors

made of TECAPEEK

Reliable plastics for Electrical Connectors

Throughout the oil and gas production industry, the transportation of electricity is a key factor. This electricity is transmitted using a network of electrical connectors. These electrical connectors are subjected to the aggressive operational environment as well as potentially high pressures and temperatures. 
Oil seal backuprings

Seals and Back up Rings

made of TECAPEEK

Withstand extreme temperatures and chemicals

In the oil and gas industry, oil seals are used to prevent dust, dirt, water and any other harmful substances from entering and damaging machinery. Seals are a vital component to help protect various components such as tight-fitting ball, sleeve and roller bearings. It is vital to ensure the most appropriate material is used to produce seals, depending on the environment they will be operating in, as different environments may require materials with different degrees of resistance to chemicals and temperatures.
Hydrphone housing

Hydrophone Housing


Effective materials for hydrophone housings

In the field of oil and gas exploration, seismic surveys are performed to locate and determine the size of oil and gas pockets. The most common technique used to determine possible deposits is using highly sensitive hydrophones. Hydrophone strings consist of thousands of linked individual hydrophones, encased in lubricant filled tubing. These hydrophones are used to record sound waves that are bounced off the ocean floor, which provide information on rock formations and possible deposits.
