Prior to the conclusion of an agreement with the Emirati licensee, specialists from the Ukrainian industrial company Interpipe inspected equipment and tools in a workshop in Abu Dhabi.
They also attended the expert threading. The complexity of Interpipe premium connections lies in the accuracy of their geometric parameters.
“It is not enough to simply hand over connection drawings and configuration templates to the licensee. One of the stages of the check, which the company conducts after collecting information about the equipment in the shop, is the cutting of a specially developed test thread, ”the Interpipe press service reported.
In just 2 years, the company entered into 14 licensing agreements with local workshops. They are located in all key export markets - the countries of the Middle East, North and South America, the CIS.
Interpipe continues to develop the supply of pipes with premium connections.
The creation of a network of foreign workshops capable of cutting and repairing threads on accessories and pipes in close proximity to the client is not only a mandatory step, but also an important service for oil and gas companies, which allows them to save time and money.
Often the need for additional accessories arises right when drilling a well. Rig downtime hours are extremely expensive, so no one is ready to incur losses.
