Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings are recognized in many sectors as a promising way of controlling wear and the corrosion performance of components. DLC coatings are unique in the sense that they are a diverse group of amorphous carbon films with a wide range of engineering properties. This allows the tailoring of DLC coating properties for specific applications by choosing suitable deposition method and adjusting their architectures. In this presentation, three qualities of DLC coatings with the greatest relevance for oil and gas applications are identified; these include: (i) improved tribological properties; (ii) reduced corrosion; and (iii) anti-fouling properties. Successful applications of DLC coatings in petroleum production are reviewed, giving examples of protection against erosion-corrosion and fouling in flow control devices and in components where protection of internal surfaces in cylindrical structures is required. The application of DLC coatings in the oil and gas sectors is still very low, compared to other sectors; therefore, it is expected that demand for this type functional coatings has potential for steady growth.
