Saves Workover costs
- PexTec® eliminates tribocorrosion by keeping abrasion, mainly caused by the sucker or PCP rod, away from the steel tubing, which increases the runtime between tubing-related workovers by up to 20 times, leading to a significant reduction of workover costs. If sucker rods are equipped with spray metal couplings, the run-time can be further improved.
Smooth internal surface
Reduces friction and energy costs
- The smooth inner surface also reduces friction, easing the pumping operations and therefore reducing energy costs at the same time. The impact of the smaller inner diameter on the flow rate is compensated by a lower friction coefficient.
Solution for directional wells
Protects bended sections
- PexTec® is the smart solution for deviated wells, protecting the tubing string especially in the bended areas, where frictional forces of sucker and progressive cavity pumped rod strings have the highest impact.
Reduces paraffin impairment costs
- The liner, acting as a thermal insulation, reduces the paraffin adherence in the pipe string.
