Advanced Composite drill pipe consists of materials made of carbon fiber and epoxy resin. The mechanical properties are comparable to steel at less than half the weight. The composite drill pipe offers superior flexibility for drilling the short radius well bores required to extend horizontal laterals at shallow depths
The composite drill pipe components are based upon technology derived from decades of research and production in the aviation, space, & defense industry. These advanced technical capabilities are not available in traditional drilling pipe made of metal. Of the many advantages composites have when compared to traditional drilling equipment, the ones below are the most noticeable.
Substantially reduced weight – ½ the weight of steel
Extended Fatigue life
Low Heat Transfer
Acoustic Emission Sensitivity
Short radius turns
Customizable to specific requirements
