- Group 3: All casing and tubing in Grade P
- Group 4: All casing in Grade Q
Surface treatment: fusion bond epoxy(FBE) coating,coal tar poxy,3PE,vanish coating,bitumen coating,black oil coating as per customer’s requirement .
Testing: Chemical Component Analysis, Mechanical Properties (Ultimate tensile strength, Yield strength, Elongation), Technical Properties (Flattening Test, Bending Test, Blow Test, Impact Test), Exterior Size Inspection, Hydrostatic Test, X-ray Test,etc.
Application:steel casing pipe is widely used for fastening oil and gas well wall or bore hold,with bigger diameter than tubing pipe,including surface casings,technical casings and oil layer casings.
Packing: Bare/bundles/crates/crate protection at the both sides of tubes or as per customers’ requirements.
Chemical Composition of API 5CT steel casing and tubing pipes:
|Chemical composition,mass fraction(%)|
- a.The carbon content for L80 may be increased up to 0.50% maximum if the product is oil-quenched.
- b. The molybdenum content for Grade C90 Type 1 has no minimum tolerance if the WT is less than 17,78mm.
- c.The carbon content for R95 may be increased up to0.55% maximum if the product is oil-quenched.
- d.The molybdenum content for T95 Type 1 may be decreased to 0.15% minimum if the WT is less than 17,78mm.
- e. For EW Grade P110,the phosphorus content shall be 0.020% maximum and the sulfur content 0.010% maximum
- NL=no limit.Elements shown shall be reported in product analysis.
Mechanical Properties of API 5CT steel casing and tubing pipes:
|Group||Steel Grade||Type||Total||Yield Strength (Mpa)||Tensile Strength (Mpa)||Hardness max.|
- a.In case of dispute,laboratory Rockwell C hardness testing shall be used as the referee method.
- b.No hardness limits are specified,but the maximum variation is restricted as a manufacturing control in accordance with API 5CT.
