Industry Served :
Oil & Gas Industry
In the oil and gas industry, components are commonly subjected to harsh operating and environmental conditions. As a result, they must be designed and constructed for durability and reliability to ensure they can withstand use in the industry’s operations.
At Pioneer Service, we provide contract precision machining services to customers across a wide range of industries, including the oil and gas industry. Armed with over 30 years of experience and advanced CNC Swiss Machining equipment, we have what it takes to produce high-quality machined parts and products for offshore rigs, drilling equipment and pipelines. Our components find use in various oil and gas applications, from refinery distribution networks to refined product delivery systems. As new technologies are introduced and adopted, we remain committed to helping customers develop products that drive the industry forward.
The Importance of Precision Machining in the Oil & Gas Industry
Operations in the oil and gas industry often involve potentially dangerous compounds and conditions, such as strong chemicals and high pressures. For these reasons, the components used in oil and gas equipment are built to strict specifications and standards. The slightest variation in shape or size could cause performance issues, which, in turn, could lead to unsafe situations. That’s why many parts and products are made using precision machining.
Precision machining is a subtractive manufacturing process. It utilizes computer-guided machines and cutting tools, which ensure components are made to the exact size, shape, and tolerance guidelines provided by the customer. Industry professionals can rely on precision machined components to fit and perform as intended.
Types of Components Machined for Oil and Gas Applications
Precision machined components find application in various oil and gas equipment. The experts at Pioneer Service design and manufacture parts and products for oil rigs, oilfield drilling systems, gas turbines, steam turbines, downhole hardware, and more. Typical precision machined components we provide include:
- Actuating system components
- Hydraulic components
- Pump system components
- Sealing systems
