The Oil & Gas Upstream and OCTG division of Tubos Reunidos has focused its working line to the most demanding Oil & Gas applications. Thanks to an integrated manufacturing process that starts at the steel shop and finishes with the threading operations, the Tubos Reunidos Group is able to manufacture all kind of steel grades with the specific properties required for their particular applications. This also allows TR to develop highly specialized material to work under the most hostile conditions, such as very high working pressures, corrosive environments or under extreme temperatures.
TR Group provides tubing, casing, drill pipe and accessories under the highest standards of quality and service to their customers worldwide. With 2 production lines in our Tubos Reunidos Industrial plant located in Amurrio, (Alava – Spain) and more than 85.000 MT Quench & Temper Capacity, Tubos Reunidos Group was one of the first Manufacturers getting the API 5CT Certification in the world.
Thanks to decades of experience, Tubos Reunidos manufactures all API grades and is able to meet each of the three product specification levels (PSL1, PSL2 and PSL3) defined in it.
TR PROPRIETARY GRADES
Once having exhausted the easy accessible oil and gas wells, the new prospections lead the OCTG industry to drill into deeper and more complex reservoirs. For such demanding conditions, TR Group is developing enhanced API products intended to work under harsh environments. Currently TR Group offers a wide range of specialized materials for the most challenging applications like
We have implemented our transformation strategy for what is one of our most important products to firmly establish ourselves as a Premium Tubular Solutions provider.
With the acquisition in 2016 of the manufacturing facilities of Rotary Drilling Tools Inc (RDT) in the neighbourhood of Houston, TX we have gained logistical, cost and flexibility advantages thanks to its own integral and finishing capabilities. Furthermore, we have incorporated new high value added products and new innovative designs developed in order to make a differentiated contribution to the requirements of the most advanced and competitive oil and gas drilling and production technologies.
Based on a chemical composition specifically designed for the “green pipe” that is manufactured in Amurrio Plant to optimise the product technological features, one of most demanded OCTG product nowadays is the patented Upset Casing BTX semi-premium connection, which offers an Integral connection tubular design using standard API threads to maintain interchangeability and can be run in the hole as a conventional casing with no special handling considerations, and significant time and cost savings.
A summary of the general features and advantages of this new design is stated below:
