Premier Hytemp’s components are relied upon in safety critical applications across the oil and gas industry where quality and reliability are essential, including wellheads and trees, valves and down hole tools.
Our customers use our knowledge of and experience with specialist metals to manufacture components that can provide durable service in diverse and extreme operating environments, from the world’s hottest deserts to the extreme cold of the seabed in deep water.
We have developed long term relationships with the leading original equipment manufacturers and service companies in the industry based upon our consistent ability to meet your requirements in subsea wells, surface wells or platform wells in almost any environmental condition.
Top Drive Components
Premier Hytemp has extensive experience of manufacturing operationally-critical components for top drives used in drilling operations.
Employed onshore and offshore for increased safety and efficiency, top drives rotate the drill string during the drilling process. Top drives facilitate drilling with three joints stands, instead of just one pipe at a time and typically decrease the frequency of stuck pipe, which contributes to cost savings. Drillers are also able to engage and disengage pumps or the rotary more quickly while removing or restringing the pipe.
We manufacture top drive components to customers’ exacting specifications, including quills, load collars and swivels. The quality of materials used, engineering and testing is paramount because rotating parts are subject to constant, multidirectional stresses in the field. Reliability is critical to maintaining rig uptime and efficient drilling operations in often challenging circumstances, including extended reach and directional wells.
Christmas Tree Components
Premier Hytemp manufactures subsea Christmas tree components which are employed in some of the most extreme oil and gas extraction environments globally.
We manufacture components ranging from tree connectors and valve blocks to pup pieces, caps and penetrators which are integral to customers’ complex, subsea systems and have a direct impact on productivity through their reliability and ability to withstand extreme operating parameters.
A tree controls the flow, usually oil or gas, out of the well but a tree may also be used to control the injection of gas or water into a non-producing well in order to enhance production rates from other wells. The complexity of subsea trees has increased over the decades and they are now more frequently manufactured from blocks of steel containing multiple valves rather than being assembled from individual flanged components in order to enhance their integrity.
Subsea tree types include conventional, dual bore, mono bore, TFL (through flow line), horizontal, mudline, mudline horizontal, side valve, and TBT (through-bore tree).
Subsea trees are used in offshore field developments worldwide, from shallow to ultra-deepwater. The deepest subsea trees have been installed in the waters offshore Brazil and in the US Gulf of Mexico, and many are rated for waters measuring in excess of 10,000 feet deep. High pressure high temperature trees (HPHT) are designed for pressures up to 16,500 psi and temperatures ranging from -33 C to 175 C.
Well Head Components
Premier Hytemp manufactures an extensive portfolio of wellhead components used in subsea and topside locations, including casing and tubing hangers, wear bushings and blowout preventer (BOP) componentry, to industry API 6A and ISO 10423 specifications.
The wellhead is the structural and pressure-containing interface for the drilling and production equipment at the surface of an oil or gas well. It provides the suspension point and pressure seals for the casing strings that run from the bottom of the hole sections to the surface pressure control equipment.
The wellhead is typically welded onto the first string of casing, which has been cemented in place during drilling operations, to form an integral structure of the well. In exploration wells that are later abandoned, the wellhead may be recovered for refurbishment and re-use. Offshore, where a wellhead is located on the production platform it is called a surface wellhead, and if located beneath the water then it is referred to as a subsea wellhead or mudline wellhead.
Our manufacturing experience includes wellheads rated from 2,000 psi to 20,000 psi working pressure with operating temperature ratings from -45 C to 121 C. In general, the yield strength of the materials employed range from 36,000 to 75,000 psi.
Premier Hytemp manufactures down hole tool components to meet the high specifications required for performance, strength, corrosive environments, heat and wear.
The complexity and economics of today’s oil and gas drilling programmes require reliable, accurate and cost-effective down hole tool solutions. We specialise in metal materials and manufacturing processes with the highest specification levels, delivering engineered products which are integral to complex drilling operations.
Whether you need a measurement while drilling (MWD), logging whilst drilling (LWD) or a fishing tools solution, we have the experience and technical capability to deliver precision-engineered components to operate in high-stress downhole conditions.
Premier Hytemp manufactures an extensive range of connector components to customer specifications for use in conjunction with dynamic and static risers, static flowlines, subsea jumpers, topside jumpers and expansion joints.
Flexible pipes are used for versatile offshore oil and gas applications including production, gas lift, gas injection, water injection and various ancillary lines including potable water and liquid chemical lines.
Our engineering and manufacturing experience includes pipeline seals, connector bodies and flanged components which may be subject to dynamic or static service and are critical elements of flexible pipeline assemblies.
We specialise in manufacturing metal products suitable for the most arduous and extreme working environments. Our quality controlled and certified products meet the most demanding of mission critical, fail safe and output loss requirements.
