Preserving Oilfield Products Amid Rising Steel Costs

Though recent U.S. tariffs on steel have raised oil and gas industry concerns, technological advancements for oilfield products still persist. In fact, it seems most apparent that during challenging times, technology becomes more and more innovative. Industry leaders, like Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies, remain diligent at finding new ways to advance industry standards. These days, oil and gas companies alone import approximately three-quarters of the steel used in oilfield products. As such, there is now a new demand for innovative solutions since the pricing for steel continues to fluctuate.

“The headline for July for the oil and gas industry discusses ‘Impact of the Steel Tariffs on Our Industry’. The recently implemented 25% tariffs on imported raw steel and steel pipe to the USA, along with quotas on steel imported from targeted countries to the USA, have definitely impacted many of our customers and could have an impact on oil and natural drilling over these next several months.” John Boben – President, Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies

Below, Essentra shares innovative ways to preserve your oilfield products, while also helping cut operational costs, and surviving the rising costs of steel.

Advantage of Digital Innovations

Producing companies have been slow to embrace the digital revolution, in part due to concerns about the privacy of information. However, the oil and gas industry is gradually implementing paperless methods of data collection and storage. Furthermore, they’re embracing technology that instantly connects the workforce, customers, and all members of the supply chain.

Companies are finding that the investment in innovative digital technology pays off in the long run by increasing efficiency exponentially. Industry experts predict that future innovations will lead to greater and more secure opportunities for collaboration throughout the industry. At the same time, digital innovations have also been found to help cut the overall cost of operations.

Continue Investing in Protective Products

Another major way of preserving oilfield products is to continue relying on advanced developments in pipe protection. To mitigate rising steel prices, the life of oil country tubular goods (OCTGs) can be maximized with high-quality protection. Protective products like packaging frames, drill pipe protectors, pipe caps and plugs, bumper rings, and many more, all maintain pipe integrity.

Essentra’s products are designed to ultimately protect pipes from damage during transportation and storage. We manufacture all our protective drilling and pipeline products from high-performance thermoplastics, metals, and polymer alloys. These materials prevent any caustic fluid from contaminating company pipes, while also eliminating contact between the pipe. When your pipe isn’t cracked, stressed, or displaying other types of damage, you won’t spend more for repairs or new steel replacements.

Hold On Until Relief Comes

Though the industry’s heavy reliance on steel remains a reality, companies continue to push technology forward. Various oil and gas industry experts are working diligently to explore new ways to utilize other raw materials that may not require steel. Until then, Essentra, and companies alike, will maintain operations and preserve current resources and technology to their maximum capabilities. It’s still uncertain if or when steel-exporting countries will concede so that relief can take place; yet, we remain watchful and hopeful.

Our ultimate industry goal is to continue increasing efficiency while keeping costs down. However, the key to long-term survival is innovation, and there is no doubt that oil and gas companies are up to the challenge of modernizing their operations when necessary. With gradual advancements in technology, material design, and hardware, companies can continue to extract resources and deliver products safely, more efficiently, and with less wear and tear on oilfield products.

Consider Sucker Rod Caps and Plugs for Drilling Basins

Drilling Basin Protection Begins with Caps and Plugs

Did you know the Permian Basin in West Texas is one of the world’s leading sites for oil and gas production? As such, it has one of the deepest deposits of shale anywhere in the world. Sedimentary basins like the Permian basins are rich in compressed organic material that is converted into oil and gas over thousands of years. To extract those valuable natural resources from the ground, deep holes are drilled, and pumps are used to pull materials to the surface. If your company is a producer, you understand that these pumps rely on a special type of pipe known as a sucker rod. Sucker rods, in turn, depend on caps and plugs for protection.

Protecting Vulnerable Threads

Sucker rods are threaded at each end because they are designed to connect your aboveground pump to the downhole pump at a drilling basin. Typically, you can join many sucker rods together to reach the bottom of the well. Thus, the threaded ends of your pipe are an essential component of safety, security, and operational success. If pipe threads are worn down due to friction or corrosion, they may not form a proper seal, causing materials to potentially leak out. In order to protect these pipes during storage, sucker rod caps and plugs can be fitted on to pipe ends.

Dangers of Unprotected Shipping and Storage

When sucker rod pipes are not in use at a well site, they must be stored for later use. However, it is vital that Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies’ caps and plugs are also applied to maintain the rods’ integrity. These thin rods face harsh conditions during transportation and storage. Though they’re made of strengthened carbon steel, they can still be damaged from contact with other heavy pipes or from contamination by caustic liquids. Caps and plugs that fit securely over pipe ends, or that is inserted into pipe ends, serve two purposes:

1. They ensure that the most vulnerable parts of the pipe are protected from collision with other oilfield equipment.

2. They keep dirt and/or moisture that could cause threads to wear down more quickly from getting inside the rods.

The Best Pipe Protection Products

Due to recent increased Permian Basin activity in Texas, many oil and gas companies are seeking the best pipe protection products for their drill pipe and sucker rods. At Essentra, we provide only the highest-quality protectors for pipe ends and pipe threads. And as an industry leader, we ensure our products are easy to use and come with a guarantee that your equipment will remain intact during storage and shipping.

The True Value of Line Pipe Protectors

If you’re looking for an efficient way to protect pipe integrity during storage, handling, and transportation, consider line pipe protectors. The oil and gas, mining, and water industries all rely on various kinds of pipe to transport products. These products come from deep under the ground and go to processing plants and end-user sites. Although steel pipe is strong and durable, it’s not impervious to damage from caustic contents, freezing temperatures, and other factors. That’s what makes line pipe protectors, thread protectors, and pipe caps and plugs, essential to protecting pipe and its contents.

Protecting Pipe Ends

To transport oil from an oil field to a refinery, for example, miles of pipe has to be joined together. Most line pipe is non-threaded with either a plain end or beveled end. Protection for the ends of the line pipe is critical to ensuring a proper weld, particularly for beveled ends. These ends must remain in good condition in order for the welded joints to hold. Line pipe protectors work by covering and protecting pipe ends when the pipe is in storage. As such, the pipe won’t become damaged by weather conditions or rough contact between pipes.

Keeping Pipes Clean

Another important benefit of pipe protection is keeping the interior of a pipe clean and clear. When pipe-ends are left uncovered, water, dirt, debris, and even animals can get inside the pipe, all of which can cause problems. Moisture, for example, can lead to rust, which can contaminate the pipe and cause corrosion and even leaks. With pipe end covers and caps in place, nothing can enter a pipe while it’s in storage or during transportation.

Protecting Human Health And Safety

Line pipe protectors ultimately ensure that workers aren’t exposed to hazardous materials and that public water supply isn’t contaminated by leaks. The right protective products can ensure that the pipe is kept clear of contamination and debris. Devices like bumper rings and pipe chocks will keep your pipe from jostling each other during movement or transportation, which can lead to damage.

At Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies, we offer the best products suitable for all your pipe protection needs. We also ensure pipe quality and safety, so get to know us as your reliable and trusted supplier. As an API standard leader, Essentra provides only the highest quality protection. With us, there’s an assurance that not only maintains your pipe but also adheres to the highest standards of employee operations and environmental safety.

Ensuring Proper Pipe Make Up with Stabbing Guides

When it comes to properly aligning pieces of casing, tubing, and drill pipe, stabbing guides are essential. Proper alignment of female/male connections is a key aspect of pipe protection, and stabbing guides ensure that pipe sections are properly and safely connected. When adding replacement pieces to a new drill, casing, or tubing string, they enable the safe, controlled, and accurate connecting of separate pipe sections.

Why are Proper Connections Important?

You might wonder what happens when pipe string connections aren’t secure. An improperly connected and misaligned section of pipe can compromise the safety of the entire system. It can also cause serious damage to pipe threads and other crucial surfaces. Incorrectly aligned or paired pipe sections are inefficient and can cause a complete failure within the system.

How Do Stabbing Guides Work?

A stabbing guide consists of a shell and collar. The shell’s role is to minimize metal-to-metal shock to ensure that damage to the pin and box threads and seal surfaces do not occur. High-quality guides have a polyurethane shell which is a low-maintenance and long-lasting material. Collars are generally spring-loaded torsion mechanisms that enable the user to manually open, place and remove the guides. For use in seaside locations, stainless steel collars are better suited due to their resistance to corrosion. Collars are adjustable to suit a variety of casing sizes and pipe connections.

Are High-Quality Guides Available?

All guides are not created equal, and users would do well to make sure they are using stabbing guides that are of the highest quality and reliability, yet also suited to their particular process and application. Purchasing stabbing guides from Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies means you’re purchasing products backed with a solid industry reputation for quality. It also means that your tubular connections make up safely. A high-quality guide should be extremely heavy-duty and durable. A quality standard pipe protection provider, like Essentra, will have a number of guides to choose from with adjustable latches and closures as well as various sizes to suit a wide range of applications. View all of our pipe protection products here, or request a free quote today.

Common Misconceptions About OCTG Products

OCTG products include more than just pipe, although they are by far the most common form of (OCTG) oil country tubular goods equipment used. OCTGs also include the array of pipe accessories that are used along with the pipe, such as pipe protectors and pipe chocks for example. While most companies understand what these products are, there are still many misconceptions about them, as well as how they are properly applied in the oilfield and offshore. Some of the common misconceptions, as well as the truth about OCTG products are listed below.

Misconception: Drill Pipe Protectors are Expensive and Not Worth the Cost

Truth — Thread protectors ultimately help save money on operational costs by helping reduce the costs associated with routine maintenance and company equipment repairs. They also reduce the risk of injury by keeping threads in excellent shape so they don’t suffer from excessive wear. Drill pipe thread protection is extremely important in many cases, as it ensures pipe protection even in harsh climates.

Misconception: Line Pipe Protectors Just Protect Pipes

TruthLine pipe protectors do more than just protect company pipes from damage. They also protect what is flowing through the pipe. This is crucial when water meant for human consumption goes through pipe, but might be important in other areas as well. They were designed to help prevent contamination, and can be used once pipe is in place to also protect what’s inside the pipe.

Misconception: Bumper Rings Aren’t Needed

Truth — It’s never a good idea to try and save money at the cost of pipe protection. Bumper rings, for example are great OCTG products used to protect pipes from bumping into each other during storage and transportation, and they ensure that pipes will not be damaged. This always saves money for companies in the long run, by reducing the chance of pipe becoming damaged and needing to be replaced.

Misconception: Chocks are Just Needed for Storage

Truth – Pipe chocks are just as important when it comes to moving pipes as they are for storing them. Pipe chocks from API standard companies like Essentra, keep loads from shifting during transportation and general pipe transit, which can help prevent serious and deadly accidents in the process. Ultimately, the use of chocks is essential to saving company oilfield equipment investments, as well as from lawsuits and various expenses associated with catastrophic transport accidents, be it on the road, or during operations.

Misconception: All OCTG Products are the Same

Truth — Just like any product, the manufacturing techniques used during production, as well as the materials used for production, make a huge difference in the quality. Companies needing OCTG products will want to make sure they choose a manufacturer that has high standards for their products and that always strives to create stronger, more durable products.

Why Eco-Friendly Pipe Protection Products Matter

If you’ve ever wondered why we at Essentra value the importance of designing Eco-friendly pipe protection products, here’s why… Per the Energy Information Administration, US oil companies produce more than seven million barrels of oil per day; and unfortunately, with increased production comes the risk of environmental disaster. Oil spills cause extreme damage to wetlands, plants, and wildlife, not to mention the crews who clean up these messes. Below is an opportunity to learn how quality oil country tubular goods, and all our products, help protect the environment and prevent disasters.

Oilfield Products Prevent Pollution

When drilling rigs of all sizes pull oil from the earth, they may cause damage to the environment, particularly when spills occur. For instance, the Deepwater Horizon incident spilled over 200 million gallons of oil into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. However, drilling equipment, OCTGs, and pipe protection products, when used correctly, can prevent:

  • Chemical leaks during oil drilling
  • Contaminated scale or rust from equipment and piping
  • Pipeline leaks
  • Oil spills
  • Improper dumping of waste

When oil producers partner with Essentra, they partner with an industry standard leader that holds quality assurance as a top priority. Companies can rest assured that all our Essentra products are designed to ensure protection, safety, and reliability, while also helping to prevent further environmental damage, safety hazards, and loss of life.

Minimizing Yearly Oilfield Waste

The EPA states that, every year, the American petroleum industry creates more than 450,000 cubic feet of waste such as sludge, scale, contaminated equipment, and polluted water. However, the amount of waste created per oilfield depends on these factors.

  • The production well’s age
  • Formation conditions
  • The production operation’s type
  • The geological location

It’s estimated that almost 30% of domestic gas and oil wells produce naturally occurring radioactive material. However, the use of Eco-friendly drilling equipment and OCTGs minimizes the amount of these harmful materials brought to the surface.

Diminishing Pollution

In some cases, community members report emissions from drilling sites, compressors, and wellheads, along with water well contamination near pipelines. Some of the most common problems arise in the areas of air, water, and soil pollution, which include:

  • Air contaminants which are released throughout the process of oil development.
  • Injection of toxic chemicals close to or into drinking water supplies via fracking (hydraulic fracturing).
  • Soil pollution and decreased vegetation growth because of oil waste products such as radioactive materials, metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, and other toxic chemicals.
  • Drilling wastes that contaminate ground and surface water.
  • Water as a drilling byproduct contains elevated levels of contaminants and salt. It’s commonly stored in pits and moved into evaporation ponds, and when spills occur here, it kills vegetation and sterilizes soil.
  • Water runoff created during the construction process may bring contaminated sediment and toxins into nearby streams and rivers.

At Essentra, Protection & Safety Always Matters

While it’s impossible to prevent every oilfield disaster, our Eco-friendly OCTGs, drilling equipment, and pipe protection products can help greatly reduce the risk. Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies is proud to work with oil producers in America and around the world, and we’re glad to do our part to minimize any harmful effects on the environment that may be caused during production and extraction operations.

Innovative, Durable & Reliable OCTG Products

Choosing high-quality materials for use in OCTG products (oil country tubular goods) is always an important step. From rugged plastics that reliably withstand exposure to UV to steel that resists stripping and corrosion, OCTG products made from the best and most suitable materials excel where others come up short. As an American Petroleum Institute (API) standards leader, Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies consistently provides products and materials that always withstand the rigors of service in the oil and gas industry.

Materials Fit for the Heaviest, Most Demanding Oil and Gas Industry Duties

Every material meant for use in an OCTG product must be selected such that all the relevant requirements will be met simultaneously. The three general types of materials that are most commonly found in OCTG applications today are:

  • Steel. Long a mainstay of the oil and gas industry, steel has evolved in various ways to keep up with the demands of the modern environment. In many cases, the demand in OCTGs will limit the applicability of thermo-mechanical processing techniques that endow many other steel alloys with additional strength. Molybdenum is often used as a hardener for OCTG-focused steel blends, with modern alloys that boast high resistance to sulphide stress cracking typically including about 0.75 percent of the element by weight.
  • Plastic. Properly chosen plastics can be used to manufacture everything from thread protectors to pipe employed in oil and gas gathering lines. Because plastic formulations can be adjusted even more freely and easily than steel alloys, especially close fits between requirements and observed performance become much more practical to achieve. From pipes made of reinforced thermoplastic to high- and low-density varieties of polyethylene, plastics of various kinds consistently deliver everything asked of them and more in OCTG applications.
  • Composites. Steel, plastics, and other materials can also be combined in OCTG products to enable selected benefits of each. Thread protectors that incorporate steel and plastic, for example, can provide the impressive impact resistance of the former with the near-immunity to corrosion of the latter.

A Basic Safeguard Against Many Common Dangers

While there are many other factors to consider, choosing the best and most appropriate materials always goes a long way toward ensuring that OCTG products will perform as hoped in the field. Some of the types of stress that high-quality materials can protect against include:

  • Vibration that can undermine structural integrity and eventually lead to failure.
  • Corrosion which could eat away steadily at the strength of OCTG products.
  • Impacts that crush, fracture, and destroy much-needed OCTGs in a single stroke.
  • Temperature extremes and swings which weaken lesser materials over time until failure becomes inevitable.
  • Stripping of threads and fittings that can render OCTG parts useless.
  • Ultra-violet radiation whose deteriorating effects accumulate steadily in some types of plastic.

Relying on an API standards leader like Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies, makes it easy to feel assured that all the protection and performance-related benefits that top-quality, innovative materials can provide in pipe protection and various OCTG products is always available. Where inferior or outdated materials might endanger entire projects, those selected and provided by Essentra always meet and exceed expectations.

How Drill Pipe Protectors Greatly Reduce Pipe Wear

Those working within the mining industries, as well as the oil and gas drilling industries, know all too well how heavy drilling activities often take place in harsh environmental conditions. Preventing corrosion is essential to ensuring operational safety, and maintaining the integrity of equipment, especially when it comes to preserving drill pipe. Thankfully, drill pipe protectors can significantly reduce pipe wear and tear. Read on to find out how.

The Vulnerability of Drill Pipe

Though drill pipe is generally fabricated using durable materials, they do have some weak points. A drill pipe’s threads tend to be prone to damage during transport, storage, and routine use. Furthermore, there are application vulnerabilities that must be consistently protected and maintained for safe use. For example, when drill pipe is subjected to intense abrasion and shock forces this eventually causes wear and tear, especially near the lower sections of drill risers and casings.

At the same time, there is the drill string, which is designed to be flexible in order to allow them to move laterally inside wells. The application of drilling forces can cause the joints between drill strings to move in different directions, generating frictional forces and causing excessive wear to string joints and bit surfaces. As such, most of the drill pipe’s integrity must be preserved. Drill pipe protectors, as well as other protective casings and drill string covers, become a vital part in ensuring successful application and operations on any industry-related site.

Maintaining Drill Site Safety

Adequate safety with pipe protection doesn’t just prevent unnecessary drilling material wear and tear, it also helps ensure the safety of everyone working on the job site. Drill pipes are designed to rotate at remarkably high speeds, which generates an incredible amount of stress force; if one of these pipes were to fail while running full-tilt, worker injuries and even fatalities could easily take place, in addition to substantial structural damage. However, there is a simple solution to avoiding these kinds of potentially grave consequences – using drill pipe protectors to reduce the wear that all-too-often leads to premature failure of drilling and mining equipment.

Thread Protectors

The easiest way to ensure that pipe arrives at an intended destination with its threads fully intact and ready for use, is to use high-quality plastic, durable plastics, and/or steel pipe protection. Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies’ top-performing thread protectors are designed to reduce the chances of dirt and debris getting stuck in the pipe threads and causing damage.

Reducing Operational Costs

In addition to providing for the safety of workers and equipment, utilizing drill pipe protectors and other pipe protection products from Essentra allows drilling operations to cut down on the operational costs associated with routine maintenance and equipment repairs. The amount of money required to install preventative measures is minimal in comparison to the financial losses that would be incurred due to premature equipment failure.
