Oil & Gas


The use of HIP technology to manufacture parts designed by different manufacturing processes for the oil and gas industry brings the following benefits:

Improves material properties and performance:

  • High resistance to corrosion and Hydrogen-Induced Stress Cracking (HISC) that it provides to the material.
  • Improved options (versatility) and performance of component manufacturing processes, since in many cases it reduces the weight of the part.
  • Allows for the design of large parts with complex shapes.

More efficient production in manufacturing processes:

  • Minimizes the need for welding.
  • Improves the use of material.
  • Reduces machining operations to a minimum.

Cost saving:

  • Reduces manufacturing costs.

HIP is proving to be an indispensable technology for this sector today, playing a vital role in meeting global energy needs, and will account for almost half of the primary energy supply in 2040.


All materials and components used in the oil and gas industry must comply with the strictest quality controls, meeting a wide variety of requirements that allow them to fulfill their functionalities and qualities. Among them, the following manufacturing and control standards stand out.

  • NACE MR 0175 ISO 15156 (NACE - National Association of Corrosion Engineers). Aimed at materials for use in environments with a high presence of hydrogen sulphide.
  • NORSOK M-650, Rev. 3. Certification for manufacturers of special materials, such as those in the oil industry.
  • ASTM A 988/A988 M, ASTM A 989, ASTM B 834 (ASTM – American Society for Testing and Materials). The standards to which those components (flanges, valves, stainless steel parts) processed by HIP that operate at high temperature must be held to.
