3D Technology

This week at Danos headquarters, Facility Manager Dwayne Johnson and External Communications Lead Nicole Williams hosted a Lunch and Learn to discuss the many uses of 3D printing as a part of our 2019 strategic initiative for technology solutions. 

Each day, 3D printing is increasing its presence in the oil and gas industry. It has become more efficient, with lightweight components, cost-efficient services and environmentally friendly materials. Research and development shows that it will have a significant impact on the oil and gas industry. 

It is estimated that the 3D-printing market in the oil industry will reach $450 million by 2021 and that this will grow to around $1.4 billion by 2025! This will help the industry simplify the often complicated structure of oil and gas product manufacturing, reduce expensive downtime and remove long wait times for parts. Using 3D technology to print replacement parts at remote locations - like one of the 1,470 offshore oil rigs around the world - would be a significant upgrade.
