Non-metallic materials are an essential element of the facilities in upstream hydrocarbon operations, being widely used in a range of functions from seals and corrosion barriers to piping and structural elements. Given their role in maintaining primary or secondary containment, the selection and use of non-metallic materials should be as rigorous as that for metallic materials within any facility.
