Sandvik to supply CRAs for Abu Dhabi wells

21 November 2019

Sandvik has entered into a long-term agreement with Tenaris following Tenaris’ recent five-year award from the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) to supply oil country tubular goods (OCTG).

Due to the extremely corrosive environments the wells experience in Abu Dhabi, Sandvik will provide corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) materials, under the Sandvik-Tenaris alliance agreement. More specifically, the company will supply Sanicro 28 (UNS N08028) in dimensions from 3½ inches to 7 inches outside diameter (OD).

Sanicro 28 is a high-alloy multi-purpose austenitic stainless steel, which is said to provide a high level of resistance to sulfide stress cracking, chloride-induced stress corrosion cracking, pitting, and crevice corrosion.

Tenaris will supply tubulars and Rig Direct services. The award includes a wide range of steel grades and connections, including Dopeless technology, to support ADNOC’s offshore and onshore exploration and production (E&P) expansion projects.
