Oil and gas companies rely on CDI seals and components

With the cost of reservoir development rising, producers demand that service companies develop equipment and tools that will perform reliably and reduce downtime, despite pushing the limits of conventional operating parameters. The internal components – seals and bearings – are no exception to these stringent performance requirements.

Seals and Solutions That Exceed Performance Requirements

Seals are one of the most prone to failure components in the extreme conditions of upstream oil and gas service. Replacing seals and other internal components reduces productivity. Depending on where the well is located, replacing seals can shut down production completely. For tooling and equipment to survive the demands of increasingly hostile operating conditions, seals need to withstand:

  • High pressure, high temperature (HPHT)
  • Rapid gas decompression (RGD)
  • Explosive decompression (ED)
  • Aggressive chemicals, including salt and fresh water, ambient air oxygen and/or ozone
  • Highly abrasive and corrosive environments

Comprehensive Energy Solutions

We provide products that optimize your tool’s performance and ensure longer operating life. CDI seals, bearings, and components can be found throughout the entire upstream oil and gas services value chain, including:

  • Well construction– linger hangers, pumping systems, rig equipment, cementing heads, bits, drilling motors
  • Pressure control– wellheads, trees, blowout preventers (BOP)
  • Logging and measurement– MWD, LWD, open and cased-hole logging
  • Stimulation and completion– packers, bridge plugs, pressure pumping (including hydraulic fracturing)
  • Downhole tools– completion systems, cased-hole logging systems, wireline tools
  • Production optimization– enhanced oil recovery, artificial life, measurement, monitoring
  • Intervention—Coiled tubing systems, workover equipment
    Wellhead– surface and subsea systems
