We all know that various types of oil country tubular goods (OCTGs) are vital for extracting petroleum in onshore and offshore environments. The importance and value of these assets require that they’re kept properly protected at all times. With Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies, this is always a top priority.
At Essentra, we design, produce and offer high-quality pipe protection products that help your company continue making the most of your OCTGs. With intensive quality assurance promoting peace of mind and reliability, your investments can easily go a long way. In fact, this is what we’re committed to, ensuring that your assets are protected and maintained in each stage of use.
Products That Keep Important Oilfield Equipment Preserved and Protected
Petroleum extraction is never a simple job. As such, there are always associated dangers to people and the equipment and assets that are employed. Every petroleum extraction rig will make significant use of the OCTGs that are used to drill wells and transport the output. Products that are designed to support the condition and management of such assets regularly prove to be some of the most important of all. Some of the accessories that are most often used in practice include:
Both drill pipe and line pipe can be equipped with threads that allow individual segments to be easily connected together. Compared to the rest of a given length of pipe, threads are inevitably far more delicate and most vulnerable to damage. Should pipe threads suffer even a bit of harm, delays and outright downtime can easily result.
Making regular use of appropriate thread protection products will reduce the occurrence of such problems significantly. With Essentra’s thread protectors being extremely affordable relative to the value they provide, doing without them will never be prudent.
Non-threaded pipes can also benefit from proper protection. Fitting each opening of a plain-end or beveled-end line pipe with protection will ensure that the ends are prepared for their next phase of use. This is especially true for line pipe with beveled-ends, which is usually prepared in that manner specifically for welding. When line pipe is appropriately protected, the pipeline is less susceptible to damage and/or failure.
Additionally, using high-quality bumper rings and pipe chocks provide ultimate security when the pipe isn’t in use. These devices are specifically designed to keep pipe stable during storage and transportation, and to keep pipe separated, ensuring no frictional damage occurs.
Quality Must Always Be a Priority
While any type of pipe protection might seem better than none, high-quality products are always far more successful than those less reliable. Manufacturers that focus intently on quality assurance, ensure that their customers’ OCTG assets will remain protected at all times. At Essentra we truly are committed to protecting your operational equipment, be it during transport, storage, or active usage.
