According to the API (American Petroleum Institute) standardized specifications, through the control on the chemical properties and adopts different heat treatment, OCTG pipe is classified into different performances material more than ten grades.Drill pipe is a heavy, seamless tube that rotates the drill bit and circulates drilling fluid. It allows the drilling fluid to be pumped through the bit and back up the annulus. The pipe is subject to axial tension, extremely high torque and high internal pressure. That is why the pipe is extremely strong and vital in OCTG endeavour.
Drill Pipe normally mean for the Durable steel pipe used in drilling, standards in API 5DP and API SPEC 7-1.If you don?ˉt understand the annulus of an oil well, it is the space between the casing and the piping or any piping tubing, casing or piping immediately surrounding it. Annulus allows the fluid to circulate in the well. So when we are talking about strong or heavy duty OCTG pipe, we are talking Drill pipe.Steel casing pipe is used to line the borehole that is being dug into the ground to get oil. Just like the drill pipe, the steel pipe casing is also subject to axial tension. This is the large diameter pipe inserted into a drilled borehole and held into place with cement. The casing is subject to axial tension by its dead weight, external pressure by the rock surrounding it and internal pressure by the fluid purging. When it is well cemented in place, the drilling process is aided in the following ways:
OCTG Tubing pipe goes inside the casing pipe because it is the pipe through which oil makes its way out. Tubing is the simplest part of OCTG and it is normally found in the segment of 30 ft (9 m), with threaded connection at both ends. The pipe is either used to transport natural gas or crude oil from the producing formation to the facilities where it will be processed after drilling is complete.Top Searches - Trending Searches - New Articles - Top Articles - Trending Articles - Featured Articles - Top Members
