Tenax™ carbon fiber of Teijin provides high-performance solutions for the oil and gas sector.

In today’s dynamic world, fossil fuels are becoming increasingly difficult to extract. Nowhere is this more evident than in the offshore oil and gas industry where this trend is driving the development of lightweight materials to replace steel.  

This is especially true in deeper and more remote waters, requiring new technologies to extract oil more efficiently from existing fields. Furthermore, with higher working pressures, temperatures and more aggressive crudes being extracted, the performance requirements of materials used under water are becoming increasingly demanding.  

Key benefits of carbon fiber:

  • Reduced weight
  • Lower installation costs
  • Reduced installation time
  • Extended product life cycles
  • Longer lengths
  • Improved product performance  

With unique properties such as high tenacity, high strength and high-tensile modulus, carbon fiber is perfectly suited to reinforcing a wide range of deepwater products. When used as a replacement for steel, carbon fiber enables deepwater developers to reach new depths without compromising on strength.
