ABOUT DRILL PIPE
Drill pipe is an industrial tubular used to drill into the ground and used by three major industries: oil and gas industry (most common), underground construction, or more specifically Horizontal Directional Drilling, and water well drilling. We proudly serve all three of these major industries.
The oil and gas industry is where it is used the most. Each 31ft length of pipe is screwed together one by one, and collectively they are known as the drill string. Drill collars and heavy-weight drill pipe are also parts of the drill string. At the bottom of the drill string is the drill bit, which does the actual boring into the earth. Initially, all oilfield drill pipe is drilled into the ground vertically by the drilling rig. Then, depending on the proposed location and orientation of the oil well, the direction of the drilling is sometimes changed to horizontal. In comparison to other industries, it is made to withstand the toughest working conditions. This is mainly due to the extreme depths it is used and the extreme conditions of the earth at those depths. For example, some drill string lengths are in excess of 30,000ft.
The second industry is underground construction, or more specifically, the Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD). This industry utilizes drill pipe to bore tunnels underneath waterways, major roadways, and generally, any place where trenching is not acceptable. The resulting bore is used for various utility pipelines such as fiber optic, water, electricity, and oil and gas. HDD drilling rigs are very different from oilfield drilling rigs in that they are almost completely laying flat or horizontal. Most of the larger (Maxi) HDD rigs use exactly the same pipe that the oilfield uses.
The third industry is water well drilling. Water wells are very shallow compared to oil wells, so the pipes and drilling rigs are a lighter duty.
