Tenaris, a supplier of tubes and related services for the energy sector has invested £3.1m in a new fully automated Dopeless® technology line at its threading facility in Aberdeen.

The investment increases the plant’s Dopeless® production capacity per year to 10,800 pieces from 3,600.

It allows Tenaris to better serve customers operating in extreme conditions with a technology that increases operational efficiency, improves safety, minimizes the environmental impact of drilling and reduces costs.

Dopeless® technology - first introduced in 2003 in the North Sea - is a dry, multifunctional coating applied in a fully automated process. This ensures the precise amount of dry lubricant is applied.

The benefits of using a dope-free product extend from the mill to the rig site: less pipe handling is required, reduces running times, improves reliability of the running, and with zero discharge of materials, creates a safer, cleaner work environment.

Tenaris has been serving oil and gas customers in the North Sea region since the 1970’s. It has commercial offices in Aberdeen, London, Norway and Denmark, as well as a threading facility in Aberdeen, which manufactures and repairs TenarisHydril premium connections. Tenaris expanded its service center in Esbjerg, Denmark, in 2015, and opened a new office and yard in Norway. Tenaris is also expanding its footprint in Aberdeen with a new service center, projected to begin operations in 2017.
