Since 2022, Russia-Ukraine geopolitical conflicts have intensified, and global energy prices have risen sharply, with international natural gas prices hitting historic highs. As the most important transitional energy source in the transition from fossil energy to non-fossil energy, the share of natural gas in primary energy has increased from 14.6% in 1965 to 24.7% in 2020. The global gas price indices showed a unilateral downward trend from 2018, bottomed out in 2020, and remained low for a long time. However, since July 2020, the global gas prices have gradually fluctuated upward, and the impact of geopolitical events made the Dutch TTF gas price even hit record highs repeatedly.
An analyst of a securities company believes that the core catalyst of this round of global gas market lies in the lack of investment in upstream oil and gas resources caused by long-term low prices. Since 2020, although the epidemic has led to a decline in demand, the decline in supply has been faster, resulting in a large inventory consumption. In 2021, demand will recover faster than supply (the supply-side is less sensitive to prices, which will be reflected in investment).
As the world's two largest gas in625 powder are also expected to change significantly.
Introduction to Inconel 625 Alloy
Inconel 625 is a Ni-Cr-Mo alloy, it is used for its high strength, excellent manufacturability (including connections) and excellent corrosion resistance. Operating temperatures range from low to 1800°F(982°C).

Inconel 625 Alloy Properties
The strength of INCONEL 625 alloy comes from the strengthening effect of molybdenum and niobium on the Ni-Cr matrix.
Thus, precipitate hardening is not required. This element combination also provides excellent resistance to a variety of unusually severe corrosive environments and high temperature effects such as oxidation and carburization. High tensile, creep and fracture strength; Excellent fatigue and thermal fatigue strength; Oxidation resistance.

Inconel 625 Alloy Application
Inconel alloy 625 is ideal for seawater applications due to its resistance to local corrosion (pitting and crevice corrosion), high corrosion fatigue strength, high tensile strength and resistance to chloride ion stress corrosion cracking. It is used for wire ropes for mooring cables, propeller blades for mobile patrol boats, submarine auxiliary propulsion motors, submarine quick-break fittings, exhaust ducts for naval utility ships, sheaths for submarine communication cables, submarine transducer control, and steam line bellows. Potential applications are springs, seals, bellows for underwater control, cable connectors, fasteners, bending devices and Marine instrumentation components.
Inconel 625 alloy has become a research hotspot in aerospace field because of its good solderability and brazing ability. It is used in applications such as aircraft piping systems, engine exhaust systems, reverse thrust systems, resistance welded honeycomb structures for engine control enclosures, fuel and hydraulic lines, jet rods, bellies, turbine shroud rings, and heat exchanger lines in environmental control systems. It is also suitable for combustion system transition bushings, turbine seals, compressor blades and rocket thrust chamber tubing.
Inconel alloy 625 has excellent and universal corrosion resistance over a wide range of temperatures and pressures, which is the main reason for its wide acceptance in the chemical processing field. Because of its ease of manufacture, it is made into various components of factory equipment. Its high strength enables it to be used, for example, in thin-walled vessels or pipes, rather than with other materials, improving heat transfer and saving weight. Some applications that require INCONEL Alloy 625 to provide strength and corrosion resistance are bubble enclosures, piping, reaction vessels, distillation towers, heat exchangers, transfer piping and valves.
In the nuclear field, Inconel 625 can be used in nuclear water reactor core and control rod parts. The material has high strength, excellent uniform corrosion resistance, stress cracking resistance and good pitting resistance in 500°-600°F(260-316°C) water. Due to the high allowable design strength of 625 alloy at high temperatures, especially between 1200°-1400°F(649-760°C), it is also considered in advanced reactor concepts.
Difference between Inconel 625 and 718
Inconel 625 is mainly composed of nickel and chromium. It also includes molybdenum and niobium, which provide high tensile strength and corrosion resistance, including crevice corrosion. Niobium and molybdenum have high strength at low or extremely high temperatures. The Inconel 625 maintains its strength in environments up to 2,000° F with excellent oxidation resistance and carburizing resistance.
Inconel 718 has similar chemical composition to Inconel 625. Inconel 718 is notable for its ability to precipitate hardening without succumbing to post-weld cracking. It also resists creep fracture at temperatures up to 1,300° F. Because of this ability, the Inconel 718 can maintain high tensile strength while still having alloy properties such as high formability.
Inconel 718 began in the aerospace industry and is becoming more common in this field. According to one study, the alloy accounts for more than 30 percent of the mass of finished parts in modern aircraft engines. An obvious use case for superalloys is aircraft engines, which can withstand the high-pressure, highly corrosive environments of burning jet fuel and extraordinary propulsion.
Due to its corrosion resistance, especially in sea salt environments, the Inconel 625 has a number of Marine industrial uses. This includes the needs of the oil and gas industry for downhole drilling applications such as subsea line tiebacks. The Inconel 625 is also used in Marine environments for telecommunication lines, propeller blades and wire ropes.
