For less critical operations, the use of 3Cr grades offers an overall cost-effective tubing string, either replacing costly 13Cr grades, or reducing workover frequency of carbon steel completions related to high corrosion rates.
Our Well design and Material selection team can provide a well engineering and cost evaluation support to find the best solution for your project, based on our extensive test database and a dedicated qualification program
Our 3Cr grades are qualified with our VAM® connections, and supplied from our highly competitive production routes!
“3Cr grades were demonstrated as alternative solution to reduce the frequency of carbon steel tubing string replacement, at a reasonable cost for onshore mature fields and wells with short service life in Middle East.”
