Oil casing is mainly used to support the walls of oil, gas and water wells. It is an important guarantee for the normal operation of oil and gas wells after drilling and completion. Due to factors such as casing selection, quality, transportation, storage, and use, casing damage occurs from time to time, causing oil and gas wells to reduce production or even scrapping, causing significant economic losses to oil and gas companies. So, how to choose oil casing pipe?

According to the exploration and development deployment and drilling plan, the user needs to formulate a demand plan in advance, including model, steel grade, buckle type, wall thickness, length range, weight, quantity and special requirements, such as specification grade, thread grease type, thread protection type.

The key control points are as follows:
