I Bet You Didn't Know That The Oil Industry Recycles Its Equipment!

A hot topic these days is environmental friendliness. Companies that can boast practices that benefit the environment are seen as forward thinkers and contributors to the greater good of mankind. One of the industries that everyone benefits from yet many view in a negative light is the oil industry. Some see them as natural resource exploiters who only care about the almighty dollar, but even the oil industry has ways of being environmentally responsible.

Did you ever think about what happens with the equipment when an oil field has been evacuated? It's not always taken to another site. Many times, the equipment can be recycled, not just by other oil companies, but by consumers further down the chain.

Used oil rigs

Oil rigs are large and extremely expensive. They only serve one purpose (not like a pipe that can be cleaned and used for something else), so it makes a lot of sense to recycle them. Smaller oil companies that need a rig can save a lot of money and help the environment at the same time by buying a used one. They could end up saving tens of thousands of dollars depending on the size.

Marine piling

Oftentimes, used oil field equipment can be used for marine piling. This is a system of using steel piles to reinforce, or sometimes even support, water structures such as bridges, jetties, and piers. Piles are basically pipes filled with reinforced concrete, and almost the whole pipe is below the water. It doesn't matter what they look like or what they were previously used to transport. Using recycled oil equipment can be used to greatly improve the way we can enjoy our oceans and rivers.

Dredging systems

Surplus and used oil equipment can also be repurposed to construct dredging systems and flotation hoses. Dredging is essentially underwater land excavation, most generally used to keep waterways open and safe for ships to use without running aground. It also can help make flood zones safer by expanding the capacity of the rivers in them.

Some dredging systems are used for drilling, so used equipment isn't always going to a more noble cause. Much of the equipment can be used, though, for activities that really benefit the area in which it's used.

Remember, recycling used oil equipment is great for everyone involved

There are many more ways to use recycled oil field equipment, but these are just three of them. We all benefit from the oil industry, so it's good to see that it's not an industry that is self-centered in nature, They're actually able to put things back into a responsible ecosystem.

By recycling their used equipment, the oil companies are helping to reduce their own carbon footprint on the earth. We aren't just benefitting from their contribution to energy production. Other industries benefit by saving money when they buy used equipment too, and the earth benefits as well because each item sold used is another item that doesn't need to consume resources to be produced!

If you want to replace your old equipment and buy new surplus oilfield equipment in Australia, such as tubing, oilfield casing, drill pipe and large diameter heavy wall line pipe, visit this website.
