Longer lateral wells require complex engineered connections. They must withstand the pressure, tension and compression of horizontal drilling in shale formations.
TenarisHydril Wedge Series connections provide exceptional torque performance and are recognized as the most robust and fastest running connections in the market. But how can rig and drilling operators trust these connections if they haven’t seen the products in action?
Tenaris offers rig demonstrations that provide hands-on experience with its OCTG technology and services that can help improve efficiency while minimizing safety risks in a real-world drilling environment.
"At Tenaris, we aim to be more than a pipe supplier,” said Victor Vazquez, Tenaris’s regional technical sales manager. “We are a dedicated partner, supporting the oil and gas industry in Canada.”
Recently, Tourmaline, a Canadian crude oil and natural gas exploration and production company, attended a Tenaris rig demonstration near Edmonton, Alberta.
“It was quite beneficial for us to see how the casing is run. By witnessing the time reduction with Tenaris’s premium connections, we saw the potential for increased efficiency” expressed Tourmaline representatives.
In addition, Tourmaline representatives experienced the RunReady™ service, a series of pre-running activities that reduce time and minimize safety risks at the rig site. The service solution includes dope application and performing digital tallies of the pipes with PipeTracer® technology.
