An oil platform, offshore platform or offshore drilling rig is a large structure with facilities for well-drilling to explore, extract, store and process petroleum and natural gas that lie in rock formations beneath the seabed. Most commonly, oil platforms engage in activities on the continental shelf, though they can also be used in lakes, inshore waters and inland seas.
The machines and equipment used in such operations are of very high technology and sophistication, and operate at extremely high speeds, higher temperatures and various other operational factors, besides running nonstop and continuously. Hence, they require special lubricants for smoother and faster operations, better efficiency, reduced downtime, higher productivity, etc. Equipment used in such critical operations comprise several and intricate combinations of chains, conveyor belts, gear boxes, compressors, hydraulic system, etc.
Benz Chemicals Specialities, with its strong back-up of ultramodern R&D centers and state-of-the-art manufacturing units, has developed a wide range of high quality and performance-based lubricants and specialities products for usage in such high-tech equipment.
