We demonstrated improved effectiveness in certain drilling operations with the use of advanced composite drill pipe. This was a direct result of our real world experience and expertise in advanced composite innovations.
Since then, we have accomplished numerous technological innovations which have been instrumental in the commercialization of several composite drilling applications. Included are 30-ft long sections of flexible drill pipe, composite drill collars, and various other downhole components. All of these have been tailored to meet specific requirements and many are still under development for our customers.
The light weight, increased flexibility, electromagnetic transparency and longer fatigue life of composite materials invite the exploitation of these materials for many applications in the oil field. Our experienced technical staff would love the opportunity to help investigate the utilization of composite materials in your unique application.
Composite Drill Pipe Advantages & Benefits:
Advanced Composite drill pipe consists of materials made of carbon fiber and epoxy resin. The mechanical properties are comparable to steel at less than half the weight. The composite drill pipe offers superior flexibility for drilling the short radius well bores required to extend horizontal laterals at shallow depths
The composite drill pipe components are based upon technology derived from decades of research and production in the aviation, space, & defense industry. These advanced technical capabilities are not available in traditional drilling pipe made of metal. Of the many advantages composites have when compared to traditional drilling equipment, the ones below are the most noticeable.
- Substantially reduced weight – ½ the weight of steel
- Corrosion Resistance
- Extended Fatigue life
- Natural Damping
- Low Heat Transfer
- Electrical Resistance
- Acoustic Emission Sensitivity
- Short radius turns
- Customizable to specific requirements
Composite Drill Collars
We design and build custom composite drill collars, subs, isolators, casings and drill pipe tailored to specific application requirements. These units are specifically designed to replace metal for various reasons.
Some desired properties that have been accommodated include:
- Non-conductive (electrical)
- Corrosion Resistant
- Light weight
- Compatible threads/connections
- Compatible tensile, compressive, torsion, pressure and stiffness ratings
- Abrasion resistant coating
- Wear bands (centralizers)
We have our own affiliated Mechanical Machining Center, serving for our R&D and manufacturing. It also provides machining services for external clients, especially for machining of complicated and highly-required parts.
We have a near 20000 SQR FT anti-static workshop, equipped with up-to-date testing tools and instrument, as well as advanced production, machining and inspection equipment. Currently, there are totally 120 personnel in production department, 60% of who owns industrial experience for more than 10 years, involving disciplines like electronics application, information engineering, electromechanics, machining and electronic assembly. We have formulated a series of manufacturing process standards to effectively ensure products reliability. Parts from elements to sensors are all from renowned suppliers for quality assurance. To further improve products quality, we have established quality assurance system in line with API Q1 specifications and ISO9001 standards and strictly abide by API Quality Management System. In 2008, we passed API Q1 and ISO9001 Quality Management System certification.
We focus on research & development of new cased hole logging tools, and application of new technologies and methods to replace traditional logging methods and help service companies adopt new technologies and to lead the industry. The R&D is developing from current cased hole logging to integrated cased hole solution, from singular wireline logging to integrated application of wireline, slickline and coiled tubing (WL/SL/CT) logging. We have been paying close attention to the demand of new technology, new method, new material, new technique, and new tools from the future shear gas, coal gas and other new energy fields, as well as information resources, technologies and product development opportunities from combining sections among different industry chains of cased hole logging. R&D team are rich in professional experience, covering mechanical, electrical, optical, software, and other disciplines to ensure 2-3 new products could be launched every year. Our comprehensive designing competence ranks top in the industry.
