There are now quite a number of proprietary double shouldered connections that are designed to screw together with API connections. However, there is a lot of ambiguity and confusion with the terminology and what the make-up torques and combination working capabilities are. Read more to find out…

As drilling projects take on new challenges … and more of them … so ‘End Users’ need to know that the Hardbanding they use can still do the job. Therefore the NS-1™ Accreditation programme has increased its requirements which Castolin and Durum have already taken on board… https://www.fp.international/product-hardbanding
Fearnley Procter FZE (A Fearnley International Group Company) is pleased to announce that it has certified through its Global NS-1 Accreditation Program the PBL By Pass System Tool.
DSI FZE (A Schoeller Bleckmann Company) approached Fearnley Procter to conduct a Level 2 Design Review on the following sizes of PBL’s 3.1/8″, 4.3/4″, 6.3/4″ & 8.1/4″ against the requirements of NS-1 Edition 3 Quality, Design, Inspection Requirements for New and Refurbished Drilling and Well Completion Equipment Standards.
A Level 2 design review evaluates that the product was designed with consideration to catastrophic failure avoidance. Evaluations are conducted based on failure modes commonly observed when equipment is used for purposes for which they were designed.
The relevant certification can be reviewed here

The PBL Bypass System has provided a simple and reliable solution to various drilling problems, including lost circulation and limited circulating rates for effective hole cleaning operations for over 20 years. The tool is a component of the bottom hole assembly and it is located above the MWD and LWD tools. It is hydraulically activated (ball activated) and simple enough to be operated by rig personnel directly and does not necessitate DSI personnel on site. A special feature of the tool is, that whenever pumps are turned off, the sleeve shifts to the closed position and isolates the ports, which eliminates the u-tube effect and assures full well integrity.
As part of our ongoing commitments to the Industry and our client base, Fearnley Procter International (A Fearnley International Group Company) will be re-issuing their Technical Bulletins which are aimed at lessons learnt through our ongoing equipment failure investigations and updated accordingly.
Here is our first revision of Technical Bulletin 01. Value of ACFM Inspection:
As well as these previously published Technical Bulletins being revised and released over the coming weeks we are completing a new Technical Bulletin Release on Drillstring Vibration and its effects on Drillstring Failures.

Fact – stuck pipe incidents are expensive. Fact – incorrectly handled they become more expensive. What was your company’s most expensive stuck pipe incident? …. Want to know how to avoid them and stop costs escalating …
The best defence against stuck pipe is a good rig team who can listen to the well and react accordingly. If the team understands the principles involved, has awareness of the hazards and how to avoid exacerbating a situation, the likelihood of non-productive time and associated cost is minimised. Fearnley Procter investigate multiple stuck pipe incidents annually and draw on these learnings to develop the knowledge of Drilling Team members from the Operator, Drilling Contractor and Service Company communities. This enables crews to identify potential risks and use surface and down hole trends to spot any problems early, thus delivering savings and efficiency gains through the reduction of operational down time.
To see how that is done and how to use our knowledge to stop stuck pipe costs getting out of control, look at the topics in our team development programme for ‘Stuck Pipe Prevention’.
Designed with the Drilling Team in mind and run by an experienced Supervisor with extensive experience dealing with Stuck Pipe, our next workshops take place in Aberdeen on 28th March & May 11th. The principle topic areas covered include Stuck Pipe Mechanisms & Identification, Hole Cleaning, Wellbore Stability and reviews the operation of Jars and considerations when Jarring.
