Strong ocean currents and high pressures downhole are among the many challenges when reaching reservoirs deep within the ocean bed. Deepwater wells, located 10,000 feet under water, go through thick sand, dense salt and hard rock. In this environment, the increased formation pressures and rising temperatures are a threat to well integrity and there is no room for error. Our product portfolio for deepwater operations is designed to meet these challenges. Our TenarisHydril premium connections, weld-on connectors for high service severity applications and our Dopeless® technology are some of the solutions we have offered to tackle demanding drilling operations in regions such as the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico and the Brazilian Pre-Salt for more than 30 years.
