“Neftegaz-2018”: Unique Projects of ChelPipe Group
From April 16th to April 19th the venue of the Central Exhibition Complex “Expocentre” (Moscow) hosted the International Exhibition of Equipment and Technologies for the Oil and Gas Complex “Neftegaz-2018”.
The exhibition is in the top 10 global industry-specific festivals which are attended by foreign and domestic leaders of the oil, gas and power industries. “Expocentre”, as the organizer, holds “Neftegaz-2018” in partnership with the German exhibition company Messe Düsseldorf GmbH with the assistance of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA), under the patronage of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Russia. Kirill Molodstov, Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation, participated in the exhibition’s opening ceremony.
Virtually all key companies of the oil and gas sector, their largest suppliers and contractors, participate in the exhibition as exhibitors and guests. This year 534 companies from 25 countries of the world demonstrated their state-of-the-art developments and achievements.
ChelPipe Group presented at the exhibition its project “White Well”, new releases of oil and gas tubular goods, import-substituting products for main pipelines and latest equipment developments for artificial oil recovery.
New Standard of Oil Recovery
The exhibition’s guests could assess the advantages of the project “White Well”. An interactive presentation demonstrated the installation and operation of the equipment. “White Well” is a unique project for the domestic oil market. It is premised on the selection, production and delivery of downhole equipment with due regard for the conditions and design features of wells. It includes equipment service maintenance for the entire period of operation.
The top priority is work with difficult wells containing a lot of salt and other sediments. The project implementation allows significantly saving on well maintenance, thus increasing its profitability. “White Well” shortens down times up to 20 days per well. The approximate economic effect is up to 3 million Rubles for 3 years for one well.
Drilling Tongs of the New Generation
The Izhevsk enterprise – the Rimera Group of Companies (the Oilfield Services of ChelPipe Group) presented at the exhibition a stationary drilling tongs with a hydraulic actuator АКБ-216/80 for field development. The principal technical intricacy of the tongs АКБ-216/80 is its actuating hydraulics.
“Owing to the new technical characteristics of the tongs, its maximum torque moment has increased by more than 10%, and the drilling pipe breakout and makeup speed – by more than 1.7 times. It allows accelerating pulling and running operations and increasing the quality of making up pipe couplings”, says Sergey Berezin, Executive Director of the factory “Izhneftemash”.
Import Substitution in the Fuel and Energy Complex is Making Progress
The Russian fuel and energy complex is becoming less and less dependent on imported equipment and technologies. For instance, the enterprise “ETERNO” showed its unique import-substituting products – split tees. With their help you can repair pipelines without stopping the pumping of hydrocarbons.
The factory “Alnas” presented at “Neftegaz-2018” some ten units of equipment, including a high-speed pump unit with a permanent magnet motor, an energy-efficient motor driver and improved electric centrifugal pump stages with reduced power consumption.
