Petrobras – which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year – has recognized Tenaris as one of the company's best suppliers in 2022.
In the “goods for drilling and completing wells” category, the award underscores the commitment of Tenaris in Brazil to advancing the energy industry. This is the third supplier award Tenaris has received from Petrobras since it began the program in 2018.
Tenaris President in Brazil, Renato Catallini, and Commercial Director of Oil & Gas, Roque Ivaldi, were presented with this recognition during an awards ceremony at OTC Brazil 2023, in Rio de Janeiro, on October 25th.
"This award is a testament to the power of collaboration. It has required unwavering coordination across various areas of Tenaris in Brazil, as well as with the other Tenaris mills such as Dalmine, Italy, and Tamsa, Veracruz, Mexico. The concerted efforts of these teams, dedicated to serving Petrobras, have been essential to this recognition. It also reinforces our commitment to delivering excellence and innovation in support of our customers,” said Catallini.
Drawing on decades of experience supporting Petrobras' offshore operations, Tenaris has developed a package of technologies and services for one of the areas that requires the greatest attention to safety on offshore platforms, the so-called Red Zone.
The combination of technologies such as the Dopeless® technology, the Automatic Anti-Rotational Keys (AARK) integrated into BlueDock® connectors, and the PipeTracer® digital application, along with Tenaris’s on-site field services support to ensure well integrity throughout operations, offers customers the opportunity to operate within a safer Red Zone with simplified operations and minimal manual intervention, improving the overall safety and efficiency of rig activities.
“Delivering value to our customers through quality products and outstanding services is a priority at Tenaris. We are focused on perfecting our execution, addressing every single step, from the production centers to the rig site,” added Catallini.
The partnership between Tenaris and Petrobras in Brazil has evolved into one of the company's most comprehensive contracts worldwide. This long-term agreement encompasses not only the supply of technologies such as TenarisHydril premium connections and BlueDock® weld-on connectors, but also a wide array of added-value services under Rig Direct®, a fully integrated approach that feeds pipe from the production units and service centers directly to the rigs, RunReady™, contributing to simpler and more sustainable operations.
