Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG)
IPSCO is one of the largest producers of Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) for E&P operators in the United States and Canada. Our comprehensive product portfolio, consisting of both seamless and welded OCTG, has made us a single source supplier with the ability to deliver the entire steel pipe needs of an oil and natural gas well — from the surface casing to the kick-off point and through extended reach laterals. To ensure that each pipe and connection meets the high-performance standards customers require, our OCTG products are heat-treated, threaded and inspected at the mill or our state-of-the-art finishing operations.
Solutions for Sour Service
Today, the oil and gas industry is working in deeper reservoirs with higher pressure and higher temperature conditions. These reservoirs are often associated with high levels of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), which along with length of exposure, temperature and mechanical stress can make steel susceptible to Sulfide Stress Cracking (SSC). In response, IPSCO has developed a family of oil country tubular goods that are SSC-resistant, designed to mitigate risk to operators and help reduce completion costs. We supply proprietary seamless, controlled-yield grades with minimum yield strength of 110 ksi, ideal for mild and intermediate sour conditions.
Proprietary High Strength ERW Casing
A high-performance and high-value alternative to API L80, our I80™ casing is the result of a legacy of carefully developed chemistry and rolling practices that achieve high strength tensile properties in an as-welded product. As a micro-alloyed steel grade, it is thermo-mechanically rolled to achieve an extremely fine grain, giving it high performance without requiring the added cost of subsequent heat-treating.
