Dow Corning Experts Present Specialized Solutions for Oil and Gas Industry Challenges

A team of Dow Corning experts presented specialized solutions for the toughest oil and gas industry challenges this week at the 2009 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC 2009) held on May 4-7 in Houston, Texas.

"As the world works to satisfy growing energy needs, offshore drilling has become increasingly important," said Phil Grellier, global strategic marketing manager for Dow Corning's MRO (maintenance, repair and operations) market. "From salty platforms to dusty oilfields, Dow Corning has a long history of providing sealant and lubricant solutions specially formulated to protect equipment and guard against corrosion under extreme conditions."

Among the solutions presented by the Dow Corning team were Molykote brand specialty lubricants from Dow Corning, which include greases, pastes, anti-friction coatings and silicone compounds that provide equipment protection and corrosion prevention. Molykote solutions help oil and gas customers achieve the highest levels of equipment productivity and operation reliability with the lowest levels of service downtime and repair expense.

Where performance matters at safety-critical terminals and high-pressure pipelines, Dow Corning brand silicone sealants seal seams, joints and flanges with unparalleled performance and flexibility. Under extreme temperature conditions and in contact with fuels and chemicals, silicone sealants from Dow Corning add reliability by reducing seepage, leaks and equipment downtime.

"Dow Corning is proud to support the innovation and exploration of oilfield engineers as we seek energy solutions to power our world for generations to come," added Grellier.

Dow Corning has over 60 years of experience saving customers time and money through a combination of application expertise and a complete range of Molykote brand specialty lubricants and Dow Corning brand silicone sealant solutions specifically formulated for the oil and gas industry.
