Type P Cable

Type P Cables are specifically designed for installation and use in harsh environments found within offshore and onshore drilling rigs. These extreme environments may include severe cold, high heat, constant vibration, drilling mud, mechanical stress, and salt corrosion.

As reliability on drilling rigs is a must, it is necessary to have cables in stock which conform to strict standards and approvals. Houston Wire & Cable Company is an authorized distributor of Gexol® oil & gas cables.
