After a successful trial implemented in seven wells with two different drilling rigs at the San Jorge Gulf Basin, Argentina, an oil and gas operator chose PipeTracer® technology for its entire drilling operations in the area.
PipeTracer® technology is a unique tracking and traceability mobile application that allows operators to identify Tenaris products on-site in real time, improving accuracy, streamlining operations and increasing safety through less pipe handling.
During the testing phase, the customer asked to extend the implementation trials of PipeTracer® technology to the completion stage and to tubing. Tenaris was able to adapt its manufacturing process at its seamless mill in Argentina to effectively fulfill this request.
“Thanks to the PipeTracer® app, the customer was able to eliminate manual activities at the rig related to pipe measuring and uploading the information to systems, reducing risk and mistakes during these critical tasks,” says Guillermo Tapia, Tenaris Technical Sales representative in Argentina.
As part of Tenaris’s digital integration solutions, PipeTracer® technology provides OCTG technical specifications and enables immediate access to product running guidelines, pipe origin while digitizing pipe tallying or reporting at the rig.
The PipeTracer® app is currently used in 17 countries and has generated more than 8,000 electronic tallies per month. To learn more about PipeTracer® technology and Tenaris’s other digital solutions, please click here.
