Brazilian oil giant Petrobras awards OCTG Order to JFE Steel

Posted by: Time:2014.06.12 01:40

JFE Steel Corporation announced that together with Metal One Corporation it has received an order for 280 tonnes of JFE-UHP-17CR-110 OCTG pipe for casing1 from Brazil's national oil company, Petróleo Brasileiro SA, to be used on Petrobras's offshore oil development project in Brazil.

This is the first order received for JFE-UHP-17CR-110, a newly developed grade that boasts higher corrosion resistance. This OCTG - with a thickness of 13.84 mm and an outer diameter of 9.625 inches (244.4 mm) - have been produced and shipped at JFE's Chita Works.

This project aims to extract oil from the "pre-salt"2 layer, which lies 3,000–4,000 meters under the bottom of the ocean waters by Brazil. Since the pre-salt environment is under high corrosion senario, high-end and expensive duplex stainless3 OCTG was mostly used in the past.

JFE-UHP-17CR-110 pipe, which JFE Steel developed, has greater superiority in corrosion resistance than JFE-UHP-15CR, which is also strong and corrosion- and temperature-resistant. In addition, this pipe costs less and has a shorter lead-time than duplex stainless OCTG.

To connect these casings, JFELION - the latest JFE proprietary premium connection, with unique seal geometry - will be used.

This is the very first commercial order for JFE-UHP-17CR-110. JFE Steel's many years of supplying high-end OCTG to various oil and gas projects worldwide, its high quality and reliability, and cutting-edge pipe production technology led to this order
