OCTG tools refer to the oil country tubular goods. They are used in drilling and exploration for oil and gas. These tools are manufactured according to special standards to optimize the production of oil and gas. OCTG tools come in various grades to accommodate various applications. They can be used for both inshore and offshore explorations. Common OCTG tools include steel casing, couplings, drill pipes, tubing pipes, and much more.
Due to high energy demand, oil and gas companies continue to search for new reserves. Global energy consumption is approximately equal to eight hundred and sixty-five million tons of oil. The energy requirement rises by two percent annually. These figures prove that we need technologically advanced OCTG tools to increase oil and gas exploration to meet the surging demand.
CNPS is a globally renowned supplier of OCTG goods. We offer geological equipment and tools to extract oil and gas. CNPS plays a vital role in the oil and gas industry by providing oilfield service tools and mud logging units to enhance production. Our electronic equipment and sustainable energy solutions are popular in various markets. Keep reading to learn about the role of OCTG tools in the oil and gas industry.
From exploration to transportation and refining – various production steps are involved in the oil and gas industry. Hence, using the right type of OCTG good is very important. Let’s look at the different types of OCTG tools used in the oil and gas industry.
As the name suggests, a drilling pipe is a durable and heavy tube used in circulating the drill to move the fluid around. It pumps the drilling fluid between piping and casing. Drilling pipes are strong and sturdy so that they can withstand high axial tension and internal pressure.
The drilling fluid is circulated in the middle of the casing and piping to allow better transportation of heavy fluids. Moreover, drill pipes supply oil and gas to the well and casing region. Drill pipes are commonly used in rigs and are available in various sized.
Casing pipes are used for borehole lining. They allow digging of the surface to extract oil. Steel pipes also undergo axial tension due to the weight of nearby rocks. The surrounding fluid also increases internal pressure. Thus, casing pipes must be well-cemented near the rig to enhance support. The average size of steel pipes is forty feet as they connect huge oil and gas supplies. Casing pipes are cheaper than drill pipes. However, they cost over two hundred dollars to account for heating treatment and threading. These OCTG pipes are very heavy and play a vital role in the oil and gas industry because of the following reasons:
- It stops unsteady rock formation and prevents the drill from collapsing
- It does not contaminate or pollute the water well
- Casing pipes enable production tools to be installed smoothly
- It stops fluid loss and oil leakage
- Casing pipes restrict high-pressure areas
OCTG tube pipes are installed into the casing pipe to create a passage for oil and other fluids. Tubbing is joined from both sides and is commonly thirty feet tall. These pipes carry oil and petroleum products from the extraction site to the refineries.
Tubing pipes are strong and thick to withstand high pressure and material load during production. These pipes come in various grades and have an average diameter of four and a half inches.
All OCTG pipes must follow the following quality standards to improve the production of oil and gas.
- OCTG pipes must be super hard to bear external and internal pressure
- Chromium and magnesium are used to increase strength and cohesion
- They must prevent sulfide stress to avoid cracking
- Molybdenum and alloys are mixed during the production of OCTG pipes to enhance durability.
