Probe Oil Tools, an Acteon Company, has been granted a license by the world-renowned Austrian company VoestAlpine Tubulars to manufacture and repair casing and tubular accessories with the VoestAlpine range of premium threads. The license covers VAGT, VASuperior, VARoughneck and VAXplore premium casing and tubing threads in the sizes ranging from 1.90” to 7.5/8” diameter.
The license allows Probe to manufacture accessories and repair threads on casing and tubing which are used in the drilling and production of oil, gas and geothermal wells. This significant achievement adds to the extensive range of drilling and production equipment already offered by Probe.
David Brennan, Managing Director, Probe commented; “In order to be granted this prestigious license, Probe had to demonstrate that we have the necessary machine tools, equipment and experience to assure conformity to VoestAlpine Tubulars’ standards. Our inspection department also proved that we have the correct controls in place to manufacture and repair this range of premium threads. We are proud to have been granted this licence.”
