The upstream sector of the oil and gas industry – also known as exploration and production (E&P) – is concerned with the searching out of new sources of underground or underwater oil and gas fields. Following initial surveying and prospecting for new fields, a wide range of equipment is required in the drilling and construction of wells and the extraction produced fluids. Seals are critically important to the functionality of this equipment and operations.

Precision Polymer Engineering develops high performance sealing solutions to protect your upstream equipment from unscheduled downtime. Our innovative materials improve seal performance and reliability, with service life expectancy in excess of 25 years – even in the temperature and pressure extremes associated with upstream operations.

High performance elastomer materials

Our custom-engineered seals meet any application or hardware demands, protecting against explosive decompression (ED)sour gas (H2S) and the aggressive chemicals associated with oilfield media. This includes chemicals used to aid extraction of produced fluids through extension processes.

Our high performance elastomer materials have been specially developed to deliver superior sealing solutions to the upstream sector. Many of Precision Polymer Engineering's EnDura®Perlast® and Perlast ICE® elastomer material grades have been tested to international standards such as NORSOKTOTALNACEISO 10423API 6A/6D and ISO 23936-2.

Standard and custom elastomer seals for upstream equipment including:

Subsea Trees, Production Safety Valves, Reciprocating Compressors, Centrifugal Compressors, Gas Turbines, Subsea Manifolds, Pipeline Connectors, Swivels, Actuators, BOP'S, MWD's, Drill Bits, Reservoir Wellheads, Filters, Valves, LWD’s, Rise Connectors, Subsea Mooring, Completion Tools, Separation Equipment, Utility Systems, Choke Valves, Pumps, ESP's, Heating Systems and so much more.
