Oil plays a vital role in various sectors, including automotive, maritime, aviation, and more, after undergoing multiple refining processes. The residue from refining is utilized in road construction, and natural gas is used for winter heating, cooking, and various industrial operations and applications. The Oil & Gas industry is a critical driver of society and the economy, securing competitive resources on the global stage
The Oil & Gas industry can be broadly categorized into three main sectors.
Upstream(upstream)encompasses activities related to the exploration, development, production, and operation of production sites for oil and gas. It primarily involves discovering and extracting oil and gas resources from underground reservoirs, requiring specialized knowledge and technology.
Key activities in the Upstream sector include as below.
Upstream activities lay the foundation for oil and gas, requiring technical expertise and specialized knowledge in resource discovery and production. During the exploration and development phases, research and technological advancements occur in fields such as geology, geophysics, and chemical engineering. In the production phase, technologies like well drilling and operational and management skills play vital roles.
The success of upstream activities has a significant impact on the overall success of the oil and gas industry, influencing energy supply and economic development.
Midstream(midstream)encompasses the intermediate stage in the oil and gas industry, starting after production at the production site and involving various processes such as refining, transportation, and storage. In this phase, the produced oil and gas are transported to different locations and processed to transform them into various products.
In the midstream phase, the following key activities take place.
Midstream activities play a crucial role in processing and supplying the produced oil and gas into various forms of products. Additionally, they contribute to ensuring safety and efficiency in the refining and transportation processes, thereby maintaining a stable energy supply and addressing environmental and safety concerns.
The work in the midstream phase is interconnected with various sectors of the oil and gas industry, supporting seamless energy supply and economic development.
Downstream,(downstream)the third major section in the oil and gas industry, encompasses the processing, distribution, and sale of refined products to deliver oil products to the final consumers. In the downstream phase, refined oil products are processed and provided to consumers in various forms (such as gasoline, diesel, and naphtha), leading to value addition and the production of finished products.
The downstream activities include the following key stages.
The downstream phase represents the final stage in the oil and gas industry, playing a vital role in ensuring that the produced energy and products reach consumers. In this phase, it meets diverse energy and product demands of consumers, providing various products essential for economic activities and daily life. Downstream activities involve delivering the outcomes of the oil and gas industry to end-users and impact various aspects of society and the economy.
The oil and gas industry, which goes through numerous processes from extraction to the delivery of final products, is closely intertwined with the steel industry. Equipment used in drilling and production, for example, is predominantly made of steel, making these two industries mutually complementary. In environments such as open seas with waves exceeding 10 meters or deserts with temperatures surpassing 50 degrees Celsius, the assistance of steel products is indispensable for resource extraction. Well-designed plant facilities also provide the fundamental environment for us to utilize the final products.
DK-Lok Process Valves(Process Valves)are essential products for the oil and gas industry, encompassing various types such as Ball Valves, Gate Valves, Globe Valves, and Check Valves. These products meet the NACE STANDARD and are known for their durability. Large-diameter products are designed with cast bodies to meet customer requirements and undergo rigorous quality inspection processes before being delivered to our clients.
In the oil and gas industry, various infrastructure and equipment are required for exploration, production, processing, transportation, and other operations. These operations involve items such as pipelines, well platforms, drilling equipment, and more. DekeRock plays a crucial role in ensuring the stability and reliability of oil and gas facilities by manufacturing process valves composed of pipes, flanges, valve structures, and other components.
To meet the demanding environmental conditions of high temperature and high pressure, we have focused on obtaining international standard certifications and utilizing highly durable materials. This ensures compliance with stringent environmental requirements. With a foundation of equipment reliability, we prioritize accident prevention.
