Dopeless Coating Brings Operational and HSE Benefits

A major energy company recently compared TenarisHydril Blue connections with the Dopeless technology version of the same connection at a rig offshore Angola. The comparison between the two connection types demonstrated that Dopeless coating brings operational and HSE benefits. Due to heightened risks and costs, it is necessary to make offshore operations as efficient as possible. Without thread compounds, Dopeless technology makes running operations simpler and faster, avoiding handling and cleaning operations associated with the application of dope while decreasing the number of workers needed on site. In the case of the recent running in Angola, it helped make the running more efficient and safer.

Dopeless technology is applied on dedicated production lines in the dedicated setting of Tenaris mills. With the exact amount of lubricant adhered to their metallic surface, connections with Dopeless technology arrive rig ready, making operations more consistent and results more reliable. Taking out the dope also increased the crew’s safety and protected the surrounding environment. After the trial, the crew underscored Dopeless technology’s performance and recommended its use in the future.
