O-Rings and Seals for Oil and Gas Applications
Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream – Each of these production steps in the Oil and Gas industry contain applications requiring certain grades of o-rings and sealing products.
Upstream refers to anything involved in the drilling and extraction of crude oil and natural gas, from the ground to the surface. Upstream applications sometimes call for Rapid Gas Decompression o-rings, which resist extrusion when pressure is released quickly. Midstream refers to anything involved in the transportation and storage of crude oil and natural gas prior to processing and refining. Downstream refers to anything involved in the refining and making of the finished product (automotive and jet fuels are a common example of this).
