PTECH+™ Field Inspection
Procedures and Drawings
Drill pipe is an integral piece of equipment for any oil and gas drilling operation. Our extensive quality program ensures that the drill pipe we manufacture meets and/or exceeds API standards. Once our pipe goes to work for you in the field, the rigorous work and hard geological formations naturally cause wear to both the tube and tool joint. Conducting regular field inspections on both the drill pipe body and tool joint (including the threads) will keep the drill pipe in optimum performance and verify its integrity for a longer wear-life resulting in lower cost of ownership. Use the field inspection procedure below to properly conduct an inspection on PTECH+™ connections.
