Black Iron Sets The Standard

Our Purpose

We are not Brokers, rather, we are a unique technical service provider allowing Oil & Gas producers and EPC’s to get the most of their inventory capital investments. Black Iron is the perfect compliment to EPC organizations assisting procurement teams to deliver superior results.

Black Iron is different. We approach each engineered product and application subjectively. We have the tools, resources and industry knowledge to properly asses market value. Black Iron uses industry and engineering subject matter experts to understand the product and gain access to the right buyer/seller pools. We use proven engineering principles to validate the product for its possible application.

Our process adds value to prospective buyers and sellers alike, helping them quickly source or understand available inventories, determine market value and ensure the product they are considering is going to be a fit for application. Whether buying or selling, Black Iron’s technical team will develop qualified opportunities and leverage access to local and international markets.
