Oil & gas – a local presence worldwide
The energy industry is in transition. While oil remains a reliable raw material, gas, and renewable energies have gained in importance in recent years.
Scarce resources, changed market conditions, and stricter environmental standards call for new, more efficient processes for extracting and processing raw materials. At the same time the end products must remain competitive. Our business areas are facing up to these challenges.
We have a local presence in all the main oil and gas markets. Our network of sites ensures consistent service quality worldwide. The Plant Technology business area offers a wide portfolio of capabilities for the construction, maintenance, repair, and upgrading of petrochemical plants . Our oil and gas experts have outstanding engineering skills, making them strong partners when it comes to developing tailored solutions for customers.
For floating production, storage, and offloading units in the offshore oil industry thyssenkrupp designs and builds special slewing rings with huge diameters of up to 18 meters. The rings are manufactured in segments, and connect the tanker with the deposit. Fitted around a revolving turret through which pipes pass from the ship to several points on the seabed, they prevent the pipes from twisting when the ship moves.
With this broad range of products and services we at thyssenkrupp are the technology partner of choice for many of the biggest companies in the oil and gas sector.
