3M Oil and Gas Solutions
Proven Technologies. Bold Ideas.

Protecting people and enabling industry evolution

  • 3M technologies offer ingenious solutions to many of today’s toughest challenges. From everyday essentials, such as respirators, abrasives and electrical connectors, to advanced materials for preventing corrosion and reducing the density of downhole cements.

3M Oil and Gas Products and Solutions

  • Enhance the productivity and efficiency of your oil and gas operations with 3M™ Ceramic Sand Screens. Resistant to corrosion, erosion, acids, brines and high temperatures, these durable systems help minimize sand production while maximizing flow capacity and screen life.

  • In control fluids and cement slurries, 3M glass bubbles help reduce and control downhole pressure to improve well efficiency.

  • Syntactic foams filled with 3M glass bubbles are used for thermal insulation for pipeline and risers, and for buoyancy modules with maximum lift at any depth rating.

  • Thrust Bearings are designed to help increase equipment service life in challenging environments.

  • Rapid SRB Detection Pouch allows for quicker and easier detection of sulfate reducing bacteria (over conventional methods). The test is portable, inoculation takes seconds, and yields quantitative results in two days.
