The Impact of COVID-19 on the Oil & Gas Expendables Supply Chain

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Oil & Gas Expendables Supply Chain

We are in a trying time in the oil and gas industry. The ongoing spread of the COVID-19 has forced many oil and gas companies to either stop or slow down their physical operations.

China, the world’s largest importer of oil and gas, shutdown as a result of the spreading virus. As the virus spread, other countries followed suit, further reducing demand for oil and driving the price down further.

In addition to declining demand, many oil and gas consumable suppliers who source their products overseas, especially from China, have seen major disruptions in their supply chain. As a result, they have scrambled to try and get products to their customers on time.

As we continue to understand the overall effect of the coronavirus pandemic on oil demand and what the future holds, we want our customers to know that at McClain Oil Tools we stand strong. All of our expendables are in stock and ready to be shipped or delivered at your convenience.

We also have the advantage of having an in house machine shop and rubber molding facilities right here in the USA, so we are able to move quickly and ensure you are getting your parts on time for the job. As always, we strive to continue to bring the highest quality products at the lowest possible price. You can be confident with choosing McClain Oil Tools, that we will deliver your parts and save you money.

In our over 40 years of business, we have seen our share of ups and downs in oil and gas over the years. The industry has always adapted and innovated in response. Though we’re not out of the woods yet, and we still don’t fully understand the long-term impact this will have on the industry, we remain hopeful for the future.

Contact us today for your oil and gas expendables.
