The oil and gas industry is often considered an integral industry to the foundation of a country. Oil and gas production contributes significantly to a country’s budgets, its imports and exports, its income, and has a global effect on the value of its currency. Gas and fuel, derivatives of the oil refining process, power thousands of pieces of equipment, cars, and power plants. Moving, or pumping, fuel from one point to another is therefore integral to the successful operation of the entire plant or factory. Although gas and fuel are generally pumped through steel pipelines, there are instances when fixed structures are not an adequate conduit. When a flexible, mobile solution is required, or steel pipelines are not feasible, hoses and associated accessories take the stage.
