Tenaris will present a comprehensive suite of solutions aimed at a safer red zone, at Rio Oil & Gas 2022, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, September 26-29, leveraging decades of experience supporting rig operations with product and service innovations.

With multiple people working in a small space surrounded by heavy equipment, the red zone on the offshore drill floor has always been considered a high-risk area that poses big safety challenges, industry-wide. In response to this need, Tenaris has developed a package of technologies and services that, together, substantially reduce manual operations in the red zone, improving the overall safety and efficiency of rig operations:

Pipes are lifted with the use of slings that secure the pipe body at both ends, with no need to use lift eyes

  • The digital PipeTracer® application creates digital tallies and measurements, enhancing safety through less pipe handling, improving accuracy, and simplifying operations. It also allows operators to access technical specifications and running guidelines.
  • Using Dopeless® technology, a field-proven coating system automatically applied at Tenaris´s mills around the world, pipes are supplied RunReady™ and thus no running compounds have to be applied at the rig, resulting in less handling of the pipe on-site, while also improving running reliability.
  • The Automatic Anti-Rotational Keys (AARK) in TenarisHydril BlueDock® weld-on connectors allow for multiple automatic and hands-free activation without the need to use special tools, resulting in safer, faster operations.

The combination of these solutions, plus Tenaris’s on-site field services support to ensure well integrity throughout the operations, offers customers the opportunity to operate with a safer red zone with simplified operations and minimal manual intervention.

“Safety, reliability and efficiency are key at the rig floor. With our solutions we are offering offshore operators one of the most robust packages in the market, especially in terms of health, safety and environment,” says Renato Catallini, Tenaris President in Brazil. “By working side-by-side with our customers and experiencing first-hand their needs at the rig, our teams are constantly developing solutions that move our industry forward. This is another example of Tenaris’s commitment to safer and more sustainable operations.“

Tenaris has been exhibiting at Rio Oil & Gas since its first edition, in 1982, featuring the evolution of its technologies and the integration of innovative solutions for the changing needs of the energy industry. At booth, Tenaris experts will be presenting its wide range of products and services, including solutions for the development of the Pre-Salt, one of the most challenging exploration and production environments in the world.
