- OCTG datasheets – A new section on Tenaris’s website devoted to product specifications. Customers can compare threads and quickly identify their product needs by application, pipe attributes or drift.
- APIs for integration –Tenaris is implementing Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to facilitate digital integration between its customers and Tenaris systems, enabling a seamless interaction and information exchange.
We are also responding to the need for safer field service solutions arising due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the deployment of certified field services teams to rig sites, customers receive onsite technical running assistance to support customer well integrity. Preventive measures set in place due to COVID-19, however, have limited the capacity of on-site assistance in some cases and we are now providing remote field service assistance.
