Oil & Gas Sector

Nordell has a dedicated team with over 100 years of combined experience in the manufacture of products for the oil & gas sector.


Our products are used in some of the most extreme environmental conditions and need to meet regulations such as ATEX.


This keeps Nordell at the cutting edge of what can technically be injection moulded and helps provide our clients with design refinement, part performance and a competitive edge.


Nordell is experienced with the exceptional materials this sector demands, whether it is for environmental protection, safety systems or production of technical components in specialist materials such as PEEK.


With expertise in developing and manufacturing high-performance and engineering plastic materials, Nordell can offer plastic solutions that meet the specific requirements of the oil and gas industry with the capability to be used at extreme atmospheric conditions and tough environments.

Plastic That Can Stand The Pressure

The industry demands high temperature, high pressure, high mechanical strength and chemical resistance materials.


Equipment must operate in the toughest environments, and materials must be tough and resistant to corrosion.


We work in partnership with our customers in the oil and gas sector to achieve the optimum solution to suit your application’s rigorous specifications.


Our technical experts can provide you with a qualified material recommendation and would be delighted to discuss your specific requirements.
