CEIT has an important activity in the design of manufacturing processes for oil and gas extraction and/or transportation. This activity is mainly focused on the following points:

  • The development of advanced API grades for oil and gas industry
  • Microstructural control for improved material performance in deep/sour oil and gas wells
  • Microstructure / property relationships for offshore materials
  • Toughness optimization in thick gauges and microalloyed steels
  • Improved strength and corrosion resistance
  • Diffusion bonding solutions
