Oil & Gas Industry



Since 1960‚ major oil and gas companies around the world have selected 3M™ Scotchkote™ coatings to be their primary corrosion defense system for protecting their pipeline investment. 3M Scotchkote offer a range of powder and liquid epoxy and polyurethane coatings to the Oil & Gas Industry. The company pioneered the concept of internally lining oil and gas pipelines providing enhanced flow. Scotchkote coatings are tough, durable and field-proven. They are more than just a superior pipe coating – they're a vital element in the gas and oil pipeline network.

Since this time, 3M's in-depth R&D programs ensure that our corrosion protection products continue to meet the changing and ever exacting requirements of the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Industries.

 

Gas Transmission Pipelines

Gas Transmission Pipelines

Gas Transmission Pipelines
Oil and Gas Transmission and Refined Product Pipelines are critical items of infrastructure in providing power to regions, countries and large scale industrial concerns.

Steel pipes are commonly used to transport oil, gas and refined product‚ which can be subject to both internal and external corrosion – if unprotected. Corrosion protection is a critical process required in order to provide continuous operation of pipelines and to protect the environment from damage caused by leaks spillages. The pipelines can also suffer from flow efficiency issues‚ if an internal pipe coating is not utilised.

3M™ Scotchkote™ Internal and External Pipe Coatings‚ both liquid and powder‚ have been providing corrosion protection solutions to pipeline operators worldwide for almost 50 years.

The Scotchkote range of corrosion protection products also includes coatings for the protection of valves‚ fixtures‚ fittings and other steel surfaces.
