Stainless steel is the preferred choice for North Sea oil rigs due to its durability and corrosion resistant properties.

Stainless steel has a multitude of uses from cookware to US naval ships making it a very versatile metal found in virtually every industry.  It is exceedingly durable and easy to work with rendering it a great solution for commercial and residential solutions.

One of the most sought-after traits of stainless steel is the corrosion resistant property.  When a material begins the corrosion process it becomes weak, contaminated and fails to hold its own under a wide array of environments.  But when stainless steel is selected the damaging effects and costs are eliminated from the process, even when placed under extreme weather conditions.  An example of one such environment is the North Sea.

In the North Sea there are necessary isolated oil rigs standing for expansive oil and gas fields owned by various companies and organizations.  These rigs must exist solo remaining intact under relentless weather conditions.  Additionally, numerous employees live on the rigs so the adaptability of the designated metal to create a safe, comfortable and reliable environment must occur.  Stainless steel is the perfect option to exist alongside such factors.
