Tenaris recently finalized a test on TenarisHydril Blue® Dopeless® connection for a Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project. The study has been carried out in partnership with a major operator and was based on an application specific testing protocol.
Dopeless® technology, Tenaris’s dope-free multifunctional solution, is perfect for carbon dioxide injection application, providing not only HSE benefits, but also long-term reliability for injection wells.
The test, which has been streamed live to customer’s engineers, marks the first time that a gas-tight premium connection has gone through a testing protocol that includes both numerical analysis and full-scale tests simulating actual field conditions induced by the injection of carbon dioxide in highly depleted reservoirs.
Tenaris has leveraged its global R&D capabilities and technical know-how in premium connections and proprietary steel grades to address the technical challenges posed by the CCS technology. The company is also actively developing new technologies for CO₂ abatement and other low carbon energy applications.
