A major oilfield services company (OFS) and long-time customer contacted CRA with an urgent requirement for 28 Chrome premium packers for use in a high-volume gas well located in Qatar. With a tight timeline and limited options available, the customer turned to CRA for a solution.
Due to the need for a quick turn-around, a unique solution was suggested to utilize material manufactured on size for mechanical tube. The challenge lay in meeting the finished component OD/ID concentricity requirements typically only achieved through machined products. Despite the stringent inspection criteria, thorough testing verified the dimensional consistency, demonstrating its suitability for this specific application. CRA’s unique manufacturing capabilities and creative approach allowed for a 25-30% reduction in lead time and substantial cost savings for the customer by removing the bulk of the machining requirements post-manufacturing. CRA was able to provide materials in less than 12 weeks while meeting all customer requirements and project specifications.
One of our primary goals at CRA is to build mutually successful partnerships with our customers through proven reliability, extensive technical expertise, and flexible solutions for premium corrosion-resistant tubulars to meet your timeline. By prioritizing effective communication and understanding our customers’ needs, we ensure a seamless collaboration throughout your project. Want to get started?
