Tantaline Announces Availability of Corrosion Resistant Products for Gas and Oil Industry

Tantaline, a leading producer of tantalum-based surface alloys employed in hot acid environments, has announced the availability of its corrosion resistant products for the gas and oil industry.

As the gas and oil industry is increasingly facing corrosive conditions in search of using ultra-deep wells, new energy solutions are being investigated and tested worldwide. The corrosion resistant products, available from Tantaline, improve the viability for long- and short-term energy needs.

Traditional convenient oil reserves are becoming scarcer as the demand for energy keeps on increasing in the world. Therefore, performing oil exploration in different regions and geological formations seemed unthinkable before. But today’s practices include deeper drilling enhanced by oil well stimulation. This new procedure involves injection as well as the use of strong acids to maximize resources and enhance production. Although this procedure has shown some measurable changes in well extraction, it can involve corrosion challenges that compromise safety, effectiveness and efficiency.

Oil well stimulation, carried out by acidizing techniques, involves pouring of different acids, including acetic acid, hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid, into an oil reservoir through tubular goods in order to get rid of formation damage and maximize porosity in the formation. This method often brings about maximum corrosion on equipment and it is extensively stimulated with the presence of sour gas (H2S) at high pressures, concentrations and temperatures, and creates material degradation as well as regular maintenance issues for technicians.

The corrosion resistant metal, available from Tantaline, is uniquely designed to address the above mentioned challenges.
