Offshore Drilling – Oil Rig Pipe and Parts

Detroit Nipple Works supplies pipe nipples, fittings, tube and pipes to the oil industry. This we’ve written about before, but we haven’t really mentioned offshore drilling.

In areas of the western or central part of the Gulf of Mexico as well as Florida, oil rigging is very common. When oil is extracted from the ground, the process of pumping and drilling is known as oil rigging. Offshore Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama are responsible for 25% of oil in the United States, as well as 14% of our natural gas.

Oil rigging can be a dangerous process. It is important to ensure that you are using the proper materials to withstand the abrasiveness of the job.
The API (American Petroleum Institute) has very strict guidelines to ensure that the materials can withstand the pressure or corrosives of the job.

Steel Pipe For Oil Rig Construction

In order to stabilize the well, casing, or a group of steel pipes are drilled into the well. Due to the abrasiveness of the oil, and the hydraulic application, carbon steel piping is the typical choice for oil rigging.

Once the casing is in place, tubing is installed to transfer the oil. The API has many specifications in place for the necessary tubing. Some are as follows:
