Australia’s Oil & Gas Industry

Australia is rich in natural resources, including oil and natural gas. The oil and gas sector involves the exploration, extraction and production of oil and natural gas through offshore drilling as well as onshore production to meet the country’s energy needs as well as various other industrial applications.

In particular, Australia is a significant exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to international markets. The LNG industry has rapidly grown in recent years with a number of large LNG plants established in Western Australia and Queensland.

Australia has extensive natural gas reserves and it is a critical component of Australia’s energy needs, used for electricity generation, heating and supplied to various industries. Oil is produced in Australia primarily for transportation, petrochemicals and other industrial needs.

    Steel for the Oil and Gas Sector

    Steel plays a vital role in the oil and gas sector, and is used due to its strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion. Some of the key applications of steel in the oil and gas industry include:


    Steel is the primary material used in the construction of oil and gas pipelines. These pipelines transport crude oil, natural gas, and various petroleum products over long distances from production fields to processing facilities, refineries, and distribution points. High-strength and corrosion-resistant steel, often referred to as line pipe steel, is used to ensure the safe and efficient transportation of these fluids. Steel pipelines are known for their reliability and durability in harsh environments.

    Drilling Equipment

    Steel is used extensively in the manufacture of drilling equipment, including drill bits, drill collars, and drilling casings. These components must withstand high pressures, abrasive materials, and mechanical stresses encountered during the drilling process. High-strength and wear-resistant steels are commonly used to make these components durable and efficient.

    Storage Tanks

    Oil and gas companies use steel storage tanks to store crude oil, natural gas liquids (NGLs), and other hydrocarbons. These tanks can be above ground or underground and are constructed from thick steel plates to prevent leaks and ensure safety. Steel's strength and resistance to corrosion make it an ideal material for these tanks.

    Oil and Gas Platforms

    Offshore drilling platforms and production facilities are typically constructed from steel. These structures must withstand the harsh marine environment, including saltwater corrosion and extreme weather conditions. High-strength, corrosion-resistant steels are used to ensure the longevity and safety of these platforms.

    Pressure Vessels

    Pressure vessels are used in various stages of oil and gas processing to store and transport gases and liquids at high pressures. These vessels are often constructed from steel due to their strength and ability to withstand high-pressure conditions.


    The refining process of crude oil into various petroleum products takes place in refineries, which use a wide range of steel equipment, including distillation columns, heat exchangers, and storage tanks. The resistance of steel to high temperatures and corrosive chemicals makes it a suitable material for these applications.

    Valves and Fittings

    Steel valves and fittings are crucial components in the oil and gas sector, used to control the flow of fluids in pipelines, refineries, and production facilities. These components must be able to handle high pressures and resist corrosion. Steel is the preferred material due to its strength and durability.

    Downhole Equipment

    In oil and gas wells, steel is used in downhole equipment like well casings, tubing, and packers. These components must withstand high pressure, temperature, and corrosive downhole environments.
