Upstream: Oil & Gas Exploration & Production
Every day, exploration, recovery and production operations around the world are putting advanced 3M technologies to use, helping to:
We're in all the world's major oil producing regions.
- Enhance the efficiency of directional drilling operations
- Reduce downtime and maintaining risers, pipeline and equipment
- Protect the health and safety of workers in hazardous environments
Density-reducing additives, filtration for production fluids, and other advanced 3M technologies specially engineered to optimize performance in extreme environments and downhole operations.
Help ensure reliable product flow by reinforcing umbilicals, risers and flowlines, and by protecting them from high pressures, extreme cold and corrosive chemicals.
Corrosion protection solutions from 3M help to extend the life of steel pipelines, flowlines and structural components – reducing downtime, maintenance costs and the risk of pipeline failure.
From essential construction tools and abrasives to personal protective equipment, 3M provides a wide variety of proven technologies to help you get the job done the right way – quickly, safely, and built to last.
3M is committed to helping you create a safer workplace for your people. Safeguard equipment, reduce accidents, protect health and safety – and keep your oil and gas exploration operations going.
