Northwire, Inc., (NWI), along with its partner The LEMO Group, has released their latest white paper in the manufacturing companies’ “Extreme Environments and Complex Requirements” series. This white paper, like the others in circulation, focuses on wire and cable solutions that offer exceptional performance and relentless durability in the most demanding applications. Concentrating on the oil and gas industries, this installation in the white paper series explores cable assemblies used in offshore oil and gas drilling rigs, extraction systems, refineries, and beyond.

Oil and gas, the dominant players in energy generation, are under constant scrutiny by a diverse range of stakeholders. Industry titans continuously seek ways to make equipment and factories more efficient, effective, and environmentally conscious. The OEMs integral to supporting key initiatives, such as offshore marine cable or drilling wire, must be equally as capable to meet the rugged requirements.

Northwire has a 43+ year history of successful innovation in design and wire manufacturing, innovating cable products that meet and often exceed regulatory, electrical, mechanical, and environmental requirements. Known for its robust and reliable suite of offerings, the cable supplier enables engineers and project managers in the oil and gas industry to meet the rigors of life cycle challenges in the most severe surroundings. When combined with LEMO’s internationally respected connectors and assemblies, the result is a fully integrated solution that overcomes the most difficult problems facing oil and gas extraction and refinery.

This white paper covers topics from the challenges of isolated environments and maintaining data integrity to streamlining operations and critical-to-quality factors. Additionally, the piece highlights several case studies connecting real-world problems with Northwire’s innovative solutions.
