In February, Tenaris received a new order from the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) for 42,000 tons of casing with premium connections (gas tight) for sour service applications. These products will be used in KOC's exploration campaigns, an order that will fulfill the company's requirements for more than two years. Given that the average depth of the wells in this area is 5,000 meters and the conditions of the formation are very demanding, these projects require high performance materials.

KOC, the national oil company of Kuwait, has been growing remarkably in recent years. It currently produces approximately 2.6 million barrels of oil per day (mbpd) and is expecting to reach 4.0 mbpd by 2020. Last year, it announced a major discovery of 35 trillion cubic feet of free gas in the northern fields and declared that production would begin in the onset of 2008. This gas will be used mainly for domestic consumption.

“We have been a major supplier to KOC over the past 10 years, mainly in the high-end segment with our proprietary steels and premium connections. We believe the present contract strengthens our position in Kuwait and the Gulf, consolidating our presence as leaders in this market,” said Pablo Ibarguren, Sales Manager at the Tenaris office in Dubai.

As a result of increasing demand for products to suit complex drilling conditions, Tenaris has been investing to increase its capacity to supply special sour service products and premium threading.
