Duraband NC application on workstring completion tubing

Duraband, the most trusted name in drill pipe hardbanding protection, can also protect other oil and gas industry tubulars.

As well bores get deeper and horizontal laterals through shale formations extend their reach, the demands on work string tubing have grown exponentially. Extending the life of an asset is only a portion of the cost of managing this tubular. Shipping costs and downtime also impact the decision to protect workstring tubing. TubeBanding with a single 1” (25mm) band of Duraband will help reduce torque and drag when drilling out frac plugs, especially in extended-reach and deviated well profiles.

“Since we started hardbanding our 2.375” 5.95 # P-110 tubing, our rejection rate has gone from 7% to .0007%. This equates to great savings for our customer as well as us.”
