Oil & Gas cables by Marmon IEI


Oil & Gas

downstream, midstream and upstream production



for offshore, downhole, and processing production

The oil and gas industry is one of the most demanding environments for wire and cable ever to exist. It calls for sturdy cables that must be resistant to all types of influence, including industrial chemicals, oil, and acid. The cables must also be resistant to mud contaminated by petroleum hydrocarbons and other chemical components. Finally, they should be resistant to fire and, in some cases, possess low-smoke properties.

Upstream Production & Downhole

Upstream oil and gas cables play a critical role in the production and transportation of oil and gas. These cables must be able to withstand harsh conditions including high temperatures, chemical exposure, and mechanical stress.

To ensure reliable performance, Marmon IEI has developed upstream oil and gas cables that can withstand extreme temperature resistance, protection from chemicals, and mechanical strength. In addition, these cables have good electrical performance characteristics, including low voltage drop and high insulation resistance.

Flame retardancy, UV and water resistance are also important requirements for upstream oil and gas cables. In the event of a fire, Marmon IEI has designed cables that can resist or slow burning and prevent the spread of flames, as well as withstand exposure to UV radiation and areas prone to flooding such in offshore drilling environments.

By meeting these stringent requirements, our upstream oil and gas cables can ensure reliable performance in even the most demanding environments.

Midstream Production

The midstream sector includes activities such as the transportation, storage, and processing of oil and natural gas. These may include companies that specialize in pipelines, storage, or processing such as in liquid natural gas (LNG) production. Midstream activities play a crucial role in the oil and gas industry, as they ensure that oil and natural gas can be transported and stored efficiently and safely before being refined and distributed to consumers.

In the midstream sector of the oil and gas industry, various types of cables may be used for a variety of purposes. Marmon IEI provides specialty instrumentation and control cables for refineries and petrochemical plants. Our team has extensive knowledge to support large projects in the US, Middle East, South East Asia, South America, and the Far East. Our cables specifically meet the tough demands of shale oil and gas extraction, such as operation in Class I, Division 1 hazardous locations. From control cables to coaxial cables, our team of engineers can help your midstream oil and gas production facility stay productive and profitable.

It is important to select the appropriate type of cable for each application to ensure reliable operation and to minimize the risk of electrical hazards. It is also important to follow proper installation and maintenance procedures to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the cables.

Oil and gas cables used in the downstream processing of oil and gas include activities such as refining, petrochemical production, and distribution. These cables are typically used in environments that are harsh and demanding, and as such, they must meet certain requirements in order to function effectively and safely. Marmon IEI has proven capabilities for designing and developing cables that deliver exceptional performance in demanding environments.

With Marmon IEI power, control, electrical and communications cables, you can be assured that resilience is built in. Our cables provide resistance to a wide range of chemicals including acids, bases, and solvents, as well as hydrocarbons and other substances commonly found in the oil and gas industry. They can withstand mechanical damage, including crushing, bending, and abrasion, in order to maintain their integrity and function over time. Downstream oil and gas cables are often exposed to high temperatures. Marmon IEI cables are built to withstand heat without degrading or failing as well as being able to maintain their structural integrity and not contribute to the spread of the fire. Our electrical cables can be designed to meet specific electrical requirements such as voltage rating, current carrying capacity, and insulation resistance. And lastly, Marmon IEI cables meet relevant safety standards and regulations, such as those related to electrical shock and electrical fires.

It is important to note that the specific requirements for downstream oil and gas cables will depend on the specific application and environment in which they are used. Marmon IEI offers custom design capabilities to help design and manufacture cables that meet your specific oil and gas cable needs.
