Drill Collars Market in the Middle East 2015-2019

Drill collars are an essential part of the drill string. They form the lowest component of the drill string. Drill collars are heavy, thick-walled steel pipes with threaded connections at both ends. The end with an external thread is known as the male end, whereas the end with an internal thread is known as the female end. The basic purpose of a drill collar is to provide the necessary weight for drilling purposes. Drill collars are machined out of solid steel bars as per API specifications. They are manufactured from standard steel (usually plain carbon steel) or a non-magnetic alloy of steel and copper or other non-magnetic alloys. The bars of solid steel are bored from one end to the other to provide passage for drilling fluids. There are usually two types of drill collar: slick and spi......
