  • Patent number: 10900595
    Abstract: Provided is a threaded joint for an oil well tubing which possesses sufficient sealability when the external pressure is applied to the threaded joint by suppressing the plastic deformation of a nose portion and sufficient galling resistance. The sufficient galling resistance is provided by preventing the occurrence of galling at the time of making up the threaded joint during verification test performed in accordance with ISO13679:2002 even when the threaded joint for an oil well tubing has a small thickness. Parameters including sizes of the threaded joint at positions of a seal point and shoulder portions satisfy formula 1 ((Ds12?Ds02)/(D12?D02)?0.30), formula 2 (tan ?>(?D+?)/{2(Lt?Ls)}), and Ls/Ln is set to 0.2 to 0.6.

  • Patent number: 10711533
    Abstract: A threaded pipe joint, when acted upon by a tensile load, does not break on the female thread-side of a first thread section of a second thread series that extends from an intermediate shoulder. The threaded pipe joint reliably undergoes tensile rupture on the female thread-side of a first thread section of a first thread series, which is the original critical cross-section site. The threaded pipe joint is configured so that when the male and female threads of the intermediate shoulder are screwed together, the load flank-side thread gaps L1G and L2G of a first thread series, which is the radially inward thread series, and a second thread series, which is the radially outward thread series, on the two sides of the intermediate shoulder always satisfy the relationship L1G<L2G.

  • Publication number: 20030221753
    Abstract: A steel pipe containing fine ferrite crystal grains, which has excellent toughness and ductility and good ductility-strength balance as well as superior collision impact resistance, and a method for producing the same are provided. A steel pipe containing super-fine crystal grains can be produced by heating a base steel pipe having ferrite grains with an average crystal diameter of di (&mgr;m), in which C, Si, Mn and Al are limited within proper ranges, and if necessary, Cu, Ni, Cr and Mo, or Nb, Ti, V, B, etc. are further added, at not higher than the Ac3 transformation point, and applying reducing at an average rolling temperature of &thgr;m (° C.) and a total reduction ratio Tred (%) within s temperature range of from 400 to Ac3 transformation point, with di, &thgr;m and Tred being in a relation satisfying a prescribed equation.

The steel pipe is characterized by grain size not greater than 3 &mgr;m, preferably not greater than 1 &mgr;m, elongation greater than 20%, tensile strength (TS:MPa) and elongation (E1:%) whose product is greater than 10000, and percent ductile fracture greater than 95%, preferably 100%, measured by Charpy impact test on an actual pipe at −100° C. The structure is characterized by C: 0.005-0.03%, Si: 0.01-3.0%, Mn: 0.01-2.0%, and Al: 0.001-0.10% on a weight basis, and is composed of ferrite or ferrite and a secondary phase, with ferrite grains being not greater than 3 &mgr;m and the secondary phase having an areal ratio not more than 30%. A steel pipe stock having the above-mentioned composition is heated at a temperature of (Ac1+50° C.) to 400° C. and subsequently reduced at a rolling temperature of (Ac1+50° C.) to 400° C.
