Global subsea solutions
The oil and gas industry is global, reaching into some of the farthest, and deepest, corners of the world. So why does so much of the industry’s supply side operate out of one or two manufacturing hubs?
BASF's offshore oil and gas supply operations are truly international, with service and manufacturing operations based in every major oil and gas producing region in the world. Our regionally based approach means your logistics are simplified and our technical support and service can react immediately to your queries. Our track record proves it and our promise supports it: wherever your business is operating, we have the service, expertise and local knowledge to ensure you are fully supplier-supported.
Our offshore product portfolio includes a range of high-quality polyurethane-based products, including Glass Syntactic Polyurethane (GSPU) deep-water thermal insulation, rigid polyurethane shallow-water insulation, field joints, coatings and elastomers for pipe protection, as well as pigging and buoyancy products.

Oil and Gas Case Studies
Huge progress has been made in many areas of subsea diving, and thanks to BASF, a new insulation system for diving bells can be added to the list, by developing the latest generation of glass-syntactic PU for the insulation of subsea equipment.
The "Pengins Project", is the exceptionally challenging process of continuously extracting crude oil deposits from the English North Sea territory. ELASTOGRAN took on the challenge to develop made-to-measure, off-shore pipe insulation for the Penguins pipelines, through focused know-how and the benefit of vast experience.
