Tenaris to Supply Petrobras with Blue Dopeless Connections
Tenaris will supply Petrobras sour service grade tubing with Blue Dopeless connections and Duoline Glass Reinforced Epoxy coating from Maxtube for its Pre-Salt wells. This solution improves the production string performance and reliability in corrosive environments and is the result of a partnership with Maxtube and Nova Coating in Brazil. On December 11, during a virtual demonstration transmitted live from Tenaris’s Rig Direct Academy in Mexico, Petrobras representatives were able to witness the performance of a production string coated with Duoline GRE, simulating the operational conditions available at the rig site.
Tenaris President in Brazil Renato Catallini said “Tenaris is at the frontline of product development, always looking for solutions that meet our customers’ needs. In this opportunity, we have combined the benefits of TenarisHydril Blue® premium connections, already used by more than 300 operators in 80 countries, supplied RunReady with the environmentally efficient Dopeless technology, a dry multifunctional coating applied automatically at our mills, and Duoline GRE coating from Maxtube, resulting in a robust solution to prevent corrosion. Tenaris is introducing the best technical solution at competitive prices, fully aligned with what Petrobras has envisioned for its offshore Pre-salt wells. This solution reduces well construction costs, without jeopardizing quality, HSE or technical operational strength.”
