The Need for Exceptional Reliability
Used for everything from gasoline for vehicles, to power for lights and appliances, to key ingredients in plastics and other space-age materials, oil is extremely valuable. It is also very difficult to find. So, once deposits are found, the equipment and processes involved in getting oil out of the ground and to the refinery where it is processed operate continuously — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And equipment failures are extremely costly in terms of lost production.
