Advantages of Nickel Tubulars in the Haynesville Shale Basin
How nickel alloys can extend well life in Haynesville by preventing corrosion EVEN WITH LIMITED CAPEX.
Historically well conditions in Haynesville have not required OCTG alloys higher than 13Cr and Super 13Cr, but as operators are now drilling deeper HPHT gas wells, increasing levels of H2S are being encountered. It has traditionally been hard to support the increased CAPEX of running nickel alloys for corrosion prevention, and the thought of increased CAPEX in the current market is the last thing one wants to consider. However, nickel tubulars might be the best option for the overall risk analysis. Nickel tubulars significantly extend well life due to the superior corrosion prevention. This can have many advantages to the overall project economics such as:
Reduced well downtime to improve production and long term cash flow metrics.
Eliminate the need for costly and risky workovers
Reduces the chance of critical equipment failure and costly EH&S incidents
Support the increasing LNG export demand
Peace of mind and overall environmental protection
PipeSearch facilitator, Corrosion Resistant Alloys (CRA), has a technical team that stands ready to help evaluate the well scenarios you have to make the most optimal tubular design selection. We also have creative commercial solutions that can significantly impact the CAPEX investment on a well or project.

The PipeSearch Platform consolidates update-to-date mill schedules, lead times, and global market inventory into the largest database of corrosion-resistant alloy tubulars in the world.
PipeFacts by PipeSearch is a multi-stage process that utilizes proprietary software to manage a sequence of QA/QC steps in the evaluation of OCTG. It is designed to bring transparency, integrity, and consistency to the evaluation of tubulars no matter the location of the pipe.
PipeFacts goes beyond standard physical inspections of material. It evaluates the specification of the original MTRs against API 5CRA or 5CT, identifies any exceptions, and sets a standard by which MTRs are reviewed and by which inspections are performed. Our PipeFacts process has been developed to give customers complete confidence in the product they are receiving.
