Deep Well Drilling: the Deeper They Go, the More They Need Us

With the hydraulic fracturing boom currently underway in places as various as North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, North Dakota, and Alberta, there comes a corresponding requirement for drilling technology that can sustain the output. Since “fracking” usually involves drilling deeper than most land-based oil extraction operations have previously gone, companies are realizing they need to forego the low-grade fabrication materials by which they’ve previously constructed their drill-bits and such. The deeper a well gets drilled, the greater the temperature unleashed. It’s only nature taking its course, since the deeper portions of Earth’s crust contain larger concentrations of sulfur and chlorides.

Low Distortion High Strength Bar ( LDHS )

Posted by Jeff Kirchner on May 29, 2013 2:00:00 PM
This information is pertaining to Cond B or Cond S materials, or higher strengths. These strengths are also sometimes referred to as HPA Strength Levels 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 which cover a broad range of properties for the Nitronic grades. These strength levels developed by High Performance Alloys help to define the product properties delivered to customers. These strength levels help to convey the minimum properties that should be expected.
