Oil & Gas Casing & Tubing Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of oil and gas casing and tubing products, which are oil country tubular goods (OCTGs). Casing is a pipe used in well completion that stabilizes the wellbore, controls well pressure and protects freshwater formations. Types of OCTG casings include conductor, surface, production, liner and protection varieties. Tubing is placed in the well after the casing is cemented in place and is used to transport oil and gas from the production site to surface facilities for further processing. This report also covers line pipes, which are used to transport crude oil and natural gas from production sites to refineries, storage facilities and distribution facilities. This report excludes oil country couplings, pipe coatings, pup joints and thread protectors.
