TMK shipped casing for extracted viscous oil to Tatneft

Pipe Metallurgical Company (TMK), recently shipped a load of high-tech products used to case high-viscosity oil to Tatneft, an oil company in Tatarstan.

The shipment of casing equipment was a package of TMK UP QX premium connections. These products are known for their tensile, flexural and compressive strength, and they comply with the CAL4 requirements ensuring the equipment is suitable for the harshest conditions.

TMK UP QX is also known for its use on inclined mast rigs. The subs and pipes, created by Orsk Machine-Building Plant, are part of TMK’s oilfield services division and have proved useful countless times.

Tatneft plans to use the products for its steam-assisted gravity drainage method that processes extra-heavy oil. This method requires that workers drill two parallel, horizontal wells to force steam into the hole and then split the viscous oil. These well reservoirs are relatively small, making it more complicated for workers to properly set the barrel’s curvature.
