Downhole

Pushing the limits and delivering reliable performance

Producers are continually pushing the limits as they design tooling in search of oil and gas at depths once thought inaccessible. They are working in areas where unconventional conditions and geology dictate unconventional recovery methods. Whether on land or offshore, these more difficult sources for hydrocarbons challenge downhole service companies and suppliers with adverse conditions like:

  • Increasing high pressure, high temperatures (HPHT)
  • Low temperatures
  • Rapid gas decompression (RGD)
  • Explosive decompression (ED)

Importance of Polymer Seals And Sealing Elements In Downhole Tools

Extreme downhole operating environments require high performance seals that have been custom engineered and tested to ensure their reliability. The combination of HPHT, RGD, ED and harsh chemicals can lead to seal failure which is responsible for costly safety and environmental issues, as well as lost production and shut-downs on your rig. Our design engineers and materials specialists can provide proven seals and bearings for your toughest downhole challenges.

Engineered Solutions for Downhole Applications

We offer a wide variety of reliable, HPHT-stable, RGB, ED and corrosion-resistant seals and components for use in your downhole tooling. From concept, to prototype, through production, our application engineers are available to solve your most demanding downhole sealing requirements – where and when you need us. Some of applications where CDI products can be found include:
