Tenaris held a customer demonstration to highlight the benefits of Dopeless® technology in Perth, Australia, on October 23. Representatives from major and local oil and gas companies received a short introduction to the technology and then observes múltiple make-and-break processes operated through a buck-on machine.

“Dopeless® technology is very relevant to the Australian market since the country is environmentally sensitive and more and more customers appreciate the HSE benefits in addition to operational reliability and well productivity,” said Juan Faranda, Tenaris Sub Business Unit Manager for Oceania.

Dopeless® technology is a dry, multifunctional coating that makes the use of thread compounds unnecessary. This coating is applied at Tenaris mills in a fully automated process that ensures that the exact amount of lubricant is applied to each TenarisHydril premium connection. This solution reduces running time, improves reliability, produces savings and minimizes the impact on the environment. 

Among the many positive comments issued after the demonstration, a participant stated, “I think the biggest benefit is the reduction of manual handling on offshore and onshore, and the environmental part is a big bonus.” Another representative from a local oil and gas company underlined that “it’s great to see Dopeless® technology being introduced in Australia. It can reduce running times up to 25%, and it’s easy to clean off sand or drilling mud.”

Tenaris supplies local customers through the dedicated Dopeless® technology line at the Tenaris mill in Indonesia. Martin Lopez Saubidet, Dopeless® Technology Development Business Manager, underscored that “the constant interaction between local teams and corporate areas guarantee that all our worldwide experience with Dopeless® technology is available for each of our customers."
