In the oil and gas industry, structural steel is the most popular and widely used material. Among all the metals used in oil and gas construction, structural steel is the most versatile & sustainable and therefore is popular among industry professionals.
Some of the diverse applications of structural steel in the oil and gas industry include crude oil refining, natural gas processing, gas pipelines, and gas transmission among many others. Crude oil refineries, for example, have a high demand for structural steel.
Oil rigs and oil platforms are large, complex structures with specialized facilities to extract and process oil and gas. When it comes to large complex structures that are involved in the oil and gas industry, many safety precautions must be taken. It is for good reason that this industry is considered one of the most dangerous in the world.
Structural Steel Buildings provide improved safety against explosions, fires and other disruptive incidents in the oil and gas industry. Structural Steel buildings are erected quickly and very cost-effectively, saving you time and money from start to finish. It saves a lot of time during the project planning, developing, and construction stages.
Following are some of the special benefits structural steel offers in the oil and gas industry –
Most of the steel structures are built using overhead cranes. Overhead cranes allow workers to lift and move heavy structures with ease.
Prefabricated steel structures are resistant to blasts and explosions.
When subjected to extreme pressures, steel will bend, whereas other materials would break or crack. Steel structures are exceptionally resistant to collapse, so you can work with confidence.
It is required to have enough space for the specialized machineries used in the oil and gas industries. Steel structures are built spacious and with flexible engineering to meet the requirements of oil and gas customers.
Structural Steel possesses very strong sustainability credentials, key amongst which is its recyclability – structural steel can be recycled and reused endlessly without compromising its impressive physical properties. Worldwide, it is estimated that 90% of steel from demolition sites is returned to steel mills for recycling.
