Welding in the oil and gas industry

Upstream Oil & Gas applications are related to the exploration and production of crude oil, either land-based or offshore. We provide solutions for deep water offshore production. Challenges in these areas include high pressure, sour and harsh environments resulting in corrosion and short equipment life.

Sandvik brings the following to the table in our offering:

Chemical composition optimized for each welding process

Controlled ferrite content and extremely low impurity levels for resistance to hot cracking and microfissuiring

Microelement control for optimum arc stability and wetting characteristics

Controlled wire surface for trouble-free mechanized welding

Alloy design for the best corrosion resistance and mechanical properties

Do you have a welding or corrosion question? Do you need advice on welding hyper duplex stainless steels? At Sandvik you will find the latest innovations and materials insights from our 2,700 researchers. Don’t hesitate to call one of our experts if you have any questions.

Here you will find links to datasheets and welding guides for all of our welding products.

Introduction

We are a world-class developer and manufacturer of stainless steels for the oil and gas industry. For more than 70 years, we have been one of the leading suppliers of materials for stainless steel welding. The development of welding materials goes hand-in-hand with the development of new kinds of steel at Sandvik. That means that you can start using our innovations in materials and rest assured that the welding material keeps the quality required for both industry standards and your own company’s particular needs. Our experience in oil and gas industry applications and our capable technical support is always at your disposal whenever you can’t find the solution you need.

Research and Development

Our focus is on high-tech materials. Research and laboratory resources are actively utilized in order to provide our customers with the support they demand of us as a supplier. As a buyer of welding products from Sandvik, you can rest assured that the support we offer includes the competence of those who develop the most state of the art stainless steels on the market today.

Welding stainless and duplex steel is our speciality

In the 1960’s, we were the first to develop duplex stainless steel with excellent welding qualities. The oil and gas industry’s need for corrosion-resistant, strong and light types of steels quickly created a demand for our duplex products. Duplex steels offer constructors new possibilities for creating lighter constructions, even in very harsh environments. One of our leading welding products is Sandvik 22.8.3.LSi, an enhanced duplex welding wire for high speed welding of 22% Cr duplex or ASTM 316L clad pipe and 13% Cr steels for flowlines. In addition we have developed filler metals for our lean, duplex, super-duplex and hyper-duplex base materials.

Welding of nickel alloys is our latest development

We have developed a line of nickel alloy welding consumables which have found extensive use in, for example, the cladding of subsea components and FBSO constructions utilizing Sandvik Sanicro 60.

World-class strip electrodes for overlay welding

We are the world’s leading supplier of strip electrodes for high-speed quality stainless steel overlay welding of various kinds of pressure vessels. Our most recent development is strip electrode Sandvik 25.10.4.L for weld deposits of type super-duplex 2507. We also offer special compositions to achieve single layer wire overlays for ASTM 304L, 316L, and 347 weld overlays.

A comprehensive supplier with customer-focused solutions

Sandvik is a reliable supplier of welding wires, strip electrodes, strip and wire fluxes, flux cored and covered electrodes suited to the most demanding applications in areas like topside equipment, subsea piping, subsea hardware and component manufacturing. We have more than a century of experience in designing and optimizing material structures. This makes us a natural engineering partner in this field. Our expertise is at your disposal whenever you need it. We will address your needs and work until we find a solution that is perfectly suited to your particular application. Contact your nearest Sandvik office with your questions or requests. It’s your needs that motivates us.

Tell us what you need, and we’ll deliver

Our welding materials can be provided in several package forms. We offer a broad selection of packaging in order to optimize productivity and to adapt the quantity of welding materials according to the welding methods and conditions at the production site. An example of this is SanPac which can be delivered in 150Kg (300 lb) or 300Kg (600lb) drums. For weld strip overlay, consider conventional or high speed electroslag cladding capable of depositing fully alloyed low carbon in one layer at state of the art deposition rates.

Wire for non-welding applications

We produce round wire for non-welding applications such as armor wire, logging cable, rig rod, slicklines, thermocouple, conductive wire and wirelines.

Sandvik brings the following to the table in our offering:

  • Chemical composition optimized for each welding process
  • Controlled ferrite content and extremely low impurity levels for resistance to hot cracking and microfissuring
  • Microelement control for optimum arc stability and wetting characteristics
  • Controlled wire surface for trouble-free mechanized welding
