Analyze The Specific Development History Of Oil Drill Pipe

Dec 27 , 2019

The drill pipe is the basic part of the drill string. Its main function is to deepen the wellbore, transmit torque and form a drilling fluid circulation channel. It consists of a pipe body and a joint, and the joint and the pipe body are welded together by friction welding. The downhole temperature of oil and gas is uncertain, and the performance of the drill pipe is affected by its material. The environment that tests the material of the drill pipe at low temperature. Deep-sea oil and gas capital is very rich, with the decrease in the number of landings and shallow sea severe oil and gas fields, the prospect of oil and gas exploration in low-temperature environments such as deep seas and glaciers is open, which has serious practical significance.

I believe that everyone does not know much about the development history of the petroleum drill pipe. Oil and gas drill pipe manufacturers take a look with you at its specific development history.

The history of manpower using tools to drill for resources can be traced back to the 11th century. At that time, people used bamboo and wood as tools, using humans and animals as power, to drill salt wells by shock, and use the natural gas produced to boil brine to obtain salt. The earliest bamboos used for drilling can be called first-generation drill pipes. At the beginning of the 20th century, the use of steel tools and equipment, using steam engines as the power, began to drill and drill wells. At that time, the drilling tools could be called the second generation drill pipe.

The real meaning of the drill pipe was produced in the 1940s. At that time, the drill bit was used to drill rock cuttings, and the drill pipe was used to transmit torque and mud fluid, and the drilling speed and depth were also greatly improved. In the 1970s, with the rapid development of computer technology, drilling entered the automation stage, and at the same time, higher requirements were placed on the performance of the drill pipe. The drill pipe used during this period is called the third generation drill pipe.

Due to the application of drilling technologies such as horizontal wells, deep wells, ultra-deep wells, and extended-reach wells, drilling costs, and drilling risks are constantly increasing. Traditionally, the drill pipe can no longer meet the requirements for use. The fourth-generation drill pipe is facing high strength, high Development of toughness, anti-corrosion, safety, and environmental protection. With requirements, the fourth generation of drill pipe is developing in high strength, high toughness, intelligent digitalization, anti-corrosion, safety, and environmental protection.
