Due to different manufacturing processes, seamless steel pipe can be divided into two types: hot-rolled (extrusion) seamless steel pipe and cold drawn (rolled) seamless steel pipe. Cold drawn (rolled) tubes are divided into two types: round tubes and shaped tubes.
a. Process overview
Hot-rolled (extrusion seamless steel pipe): round tube blank heating perforation three-roll cross-rolling, continuous rolling or extrusion de-pipe sizing (or reducing diameter) cooling the blank tube straightening hydraulic test (or flaw detection) mark into the warehouse.
Cold drawn (rolled) seamless steel pipe: round tube blank heating perforated head annealing acid pickling oil (copper plating) multi-pass cold drawing (cold rolling) blank tube heat treatment straightening hydraulic test (inspection) mark storage.

API SPEC5CT-1999 (Casing and Tubing Specification) is compiled and published by American Petroleum Institute ("American") and is widely used around the world. Among them: Casing: a pipe that protrudes into the well from the ground surface and is used as a lining of the well wall, and the pipes are connected by a coupling. The main materials are steel grades such as J55, N80, P110, and steel grades such as C90 and T95 which are resistant to hydrogen sulfide corrosion. Its low steel grade (J55, N80) can be welded steel pipe. Tubing: A pipe that is inserted into the casing from the surface of the ground up to the oil layer, and the pipes are connected by a coupling or an integral body. Its function is that the pumping unit transports oil from the oil layer to the ground through the oil pipe. The main materials are J55, N80, P110, and steel grades such as C90 and T95 which are resistant to hydrogen sulfide corrosion. Its low steel grade (J55, N80) can be welded steel pipe.
API SPEC 5L-2000 (Line Pipe Specification), compiled and published by the American Petroleum Institute, is used throughout the world.
Line pipe: It is the oil, gas or water that takes the shaft out of the ground and transports it to the oil and gas industry enterprises through the line pipe. The line pipe includes two kinds of seamless and welded pipes, and the pipe ends have flat ends, threaded ends and socket ends; the connection modes are end welding, coupling connection, socket connection and the like. The main material of the tube is steel grades such as B, X42, X56, X65 and X70.
