Samara, October 2, 2018. Light alloy highly-reliable drilling pipes (LAHRDP) Arconic Russia, which have passed pilot industrial tests in Siberian Service Company (SSC), confirmed their compliance with the declared parameters and applicable industry standards. The quality of these pipes was tested in wells of the Tagrinskoye deposit located in Western Siberia.
'We raise tight requirements for the products that we use, as work performed by us greatly depends on them,' comments Andrey Smuglov, the Head of the Property Management Department in JSC SSC. 'We tested such parameters of LAHRDP as the wall wear rate, tool joint diameter, etc. For the time of pilot operation, we did not have any claim to Arconic Russia LAHRDP, so it's safe to say that they have successfully passed the pilot industrial tests and LAHRDP of this producer are recommended for industrial application.'
'For half a century, the reliability of Samara aluminium pipes has been ensuring the quality of drilling in difficult geographical conditions. We are proud that the technical parameters of our products were highly appreciated by Siberian Service Company and continue our efforts to improve the resource and operational properties of our pipes,' commented Maxim Smirnov, President of Arconic Russia. 'We expect that the advantages of aluminium will be the key to long-term joint projects of Samara Metallurgical Plant and oil & gas companies.'
Samara Metallurgical Plant, which is a part of Arconic, offers a wide range of LAHRDP, including from alloys of own development. Pipes of Arconic SMP have a high specific strength and are 40% lighter than steel equivalents that allows increasing the depth of drilling and improve its economic efficiency.
