Drill Pipe plays the most important role in the oil and gas exploration. Drill pipe has to withstand immense stress, load & heat during the drilling operation. It is a highly critical part of the drilling operation as failure can lead to long delays & huge loss. The requirements can be very stringent as the depth of the well increases. Sometimes the well has to be drilled through rocky layers and sometimes inside the sea. Size, grade, quantity of pipes depend on the design of the well which is based on depth & underground geology. With most of the easy exploration areas exhausted & exploration going into difficult areas, the demand for higher grade & better quality drill pipes is increasing every year.
