Oil & Gas
Materia works with companies in the oil and gas market to develop, qualify and integrate our high performance Proxima® thermoset resins as solutions to challenging onshore and offshore problems. These advanced materials are specially designed for the challenges of withstanding high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) environments, including the extraction of resources from deepwater, oil and gas reservoirs.
Unlike other polymer technologies, Proxima thermoset resin systems exhibit excellent stability in HPHT environments, delivering more modular and robust products with lower risks than traditional materials.
Innovative and Reliable Materials Enabling Challenging Resource Extraction
Even with increasing sources of renewable energy, traditional fossil fuels are still required to meet growing global energy needs. Hydrocarbon fuels will remain the cornerstone of our energy portfolio well into the future, but with the scarcity of “easy oil” reserves, companies are focused on new technologies that enable safe and efficient extraction from the harsh environments that accompany many new reserves.
Using our polymer technology and solutions expertise, Proxima resin systems have been engineered to exhibit excellent thermal stability, hydrolytic stability, superior toughness, corrosion resistance, and abrasion resistance required for these environments.
