API 5DP & API 7-1 HW Drill Pipe

API 5DP Drill Pipe for Oil & Gas

Drill pipes are steel tubular fitted with threaded ends called Tool Joints, which are commonly used in tension in the top part of the drill string to “pump fluid and transmit torque to the bit”. The DRILL STRING is the drill pipe with the tool joints attached.

The drill pipe connects the rig surface equipment with the bottom hole assembly and the bit, both to pump drilling fluid to the bit and to be able to raise, lower and rotate the bottom hole assembly and bit.

High Strength Drill Pipe – Because of deeper drilling and higher stress levels, grades of drill pipe stronger than Grade E-75 have been developed. Grades and minimum tensile yield strengths are:

Drill Pipe Grade Minimum Tensile Yield Strength:
X-95 95,000
G-105 105,000
S-135 135,000
V-150* 150,000
*V-150 is not a standard API grade but is listed as the next higher grade above S-135.

OCTG – Heavy Weight Drill Pipe (HWDP)

A Heavy Weight Drill Pipe (HWDP) is a tubular pipe that adds weight or acts as a transitional piece in the drill string, looks like a normal drill pipe except for an upset centered along the tube which helps to prevent excessive buckling.

HWDP, As a transitional section of the drill string, it is placed between the drill collar and standard drill pipe to reduce fatigue failures, typically between the stiff and rigid drill collars and the relatively light and flexible drill pipe joints to reduce fatigue failures directly above the bottom hole assembly.

In other applications the HWDP is used as an additional weight to weigh down the drill string. Its wall thickness is up to 3 times that of a similar-sized normal drill pipe.

HWDP is used most commonly in directional drilling because it bends more easily and helps to control torque and fatigue in high-angle operations. HWDP is manufactured in accordance with API Spec. 7/7-1 guidelines.

HWDP Specifications

Conventional Heavy Weight Drill Pipes come in two configurations: Welded and Integral.

The welded configuration is manufactured by friction welding of extra long tool joints to a thick well tube while the Integral configuration is machined from a solid bar of AISI4145H alloy steel.

An additional option is the Heavyweight Spiral Drill Pipe, which has spiral grooves cut into the external surface for reduced differential sticking and improved hole-cleaning.

Products are manufactured to API Spec.7/ 7-1 where applicable and can come customized with additional features and proprietary connections of leading manufacturers per your requirements.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
