Drilling Pipes have been supplied to our regular customer in Russia.

A large consignment of drilling pipes was shipped to our regular customer in Russia. The details of the shipment we supplied are shown below:   NM flex collar NM flex pony sensor collar NM flex Power section collar NM Flow sub NM UBHO RAW slick collar NM flex pony collar Drill pipe, is hollow, thin-walled, steel piping that is used on drilling rigs and horizontal drilling to facilitate the drilling of a wellbore and comes in a variety of sizes, strengths, and weights but are typically 27 to 32 feet in length (Range 2). Longer lengths exist up to 45 feet (Range 3). They are hollow to allow drilling fluid to be pumped through them, down the hole, and back up the annulus.

Used drill stem is inspected on site, or off location. Modified instruments similar to the spherometer are used at inspection sites to identify defects in the metallurgy, in order to prevent fracture of the drill stem during future wellboring. New drill pipe is classed as new (N class), becoming premium (P-class) and finally down to C (C 1 to 3) as the body outside diameter is worn down by usage. Eventually the drill pipe will be graded a scrap and marked with a red band. Drill pipe is a portion of the overall drill string. The drill string consists of both drill pipe and the bottom hole assembly (BHA) which is the tubular portion closest to the bit. The bottom hole assembly...
