We Indirectly Put You In The Oil Business


 We Indirectly Put You In The Oil Business

If you make anything to do with the oil business, we hope you’re shopping for wholesale carbon steel. We import it from Asia and show up at your door with 5,000 lbs of the stuff.

It is important that American companies know where their carbon steel comes from and insist on this being an American industry. This can be done by making a request to your suppliers for these items or by buying carbon steel products made in America instead of China or Malaysia. You could also sign up to our website’s newsletter to get free updates on premiums we offer, such as discounts and bonuses.

Let’s first dive into the basics of what carbon steel is. Carbon steel is an alloy (a mixture of metals) used in the manufacture of steel that has a high content of carbon (1.0% -2.0%). Carbon steel is one of the most common materials used for metal products made by American companies and in American homes and businesses across the country.

Carbon Steel is used in a wide variety of applications, from tools to transportation, from building construction to oil drilling equipment and other oil industry equipment and tanks/pipelines, from shipbuilding to automotive manufacturing — every sector uses carbon steel components at some point during their manufacturing process.

As you may already know, carbon steel is a very hard material. It is also a difficult material to work with and requires special care and expertise in dealing with. Carbon steel has a higher strength than alloy steels or stainless steels but it also has some drawbacks. Due to its higher carbon content, it tends to be less flexible than other steel alloys, so parts made from it are not ideal for general use. In addition, due to the presence of carbon steel materials in their manufacturing pipeline, companies can be at risk of losing customers altogether because the manufacturer has liabilities over their product lines.

We saw a good example of this in the oil industry recently. A major restructuring of an American oil company’s product lines resulted in it having to purchase its carbon steel materials from overseas. This left them at risk of losing thousands of dollars with the supplier and exposure over their entire manufacturing pipeline.

In our opinion, it is better to buy American-made or get your steel from an American manufacturer, even if it means paying more for your carbon steel components to maintain a direct line to America’s steel manufacturers. The additional cost of U.S. carbon steel is well worth the benefits it can bring to the manufacturer.

Now let’s talk about carbon steel in the oil industry specifically. The oil industry is one of the main consumers of carbon steel products because of its use in oilfield equipment and supplies. Oil field operations require a lot of heavy machinery and equipment to drill a well and make the process easier on the workers. Despite this need for large amounts of carbon steel components to make this happen, American manufacturers are having trouble finding suppliers that meet their quality criteria or can provide them with consistent pricing on their orders.

This is often the case with American manufacturers, due to the export of American jobs overseas. Most manufacturers won’t advertise that their products are made in Asia because it is a sensitive topic for consumers. Consumers do not want “made in China” on their products. In fact, most manufacturing facilities will go through great lengths to make sure their customers don’t know that they produce their carbon steel products in Asia.

The only way they can get around this issue is by using another trick — they import the carbon steel materials from Asian countries, which allow them to easily hide this by claiming that they are not importing items directly from Asia.

The best way to combat this is to ask your suppliers where their products are made and hold them accountable to their claims by not doing business with them if they say they have carbon steel items that are made in Asia.

We hope that you can see the benefits of buying American-made carbon steel components when it comes to oilfield operations.

Can the New York City Mayor’s Office be Trusted with the Big Apple? – We Say No!

My good friend and fellow writer Mark Dempsey posted an article on his blog that is sure to stir the pot in New York City politics.


The New York City Mayor’s Office is taking heat from all sides on the issue of energy efficiency. The Democratic controlled New York City Council has passed a bill that would require large commercial and residential buildings to provide information on energy consumption to tenants, landlords, and property managers. Tenants would be required to sign non-disclosure agreements, which effectively silence them from saying anything about their lease.

The bill was just passed with very little media attention and a great deal of opposition from both political parties, which is rare in any city these days. So what’s the story behind it? Well as we all know there is a battle for the soul of America between our two major political parties.
