Inventory management can sometimes be overlooked in a booming market and inefficiencies in planning processes can often lead to excess inventory. ALBA provides inventory management services for operators that want to reduce their OCTG stock and ultimately their total cost of ownership. The general process that we work through is as follows:
- Meet with the client to discuss stock levels and budget constraints in
terms of cost recovery and timing.
- Inspection of the tubulars in the yard with a scope agreed with client.
- Identification of the material that is prime and the material that is
rejected due to damage or lack of traceability.
- Repairing rejected material where possible and setting aside
- Assessing with the client whether the prime material can be utilized in
future wells either locally or within global operations.
- Managing the disposal of prime and scrap material throughout our
global network, recovering as much cost as possible on the assets and
within the agreed time frame set by our client.
We offer technical consultancy services in collaboration with one of our partners, primarily aimed at Oil, Gas and Geothermal operators who require assistance with OCTG selection for their wells. Our focus is on operators drilling in demanding applications, where we can assist with both material and premium connection selection as well as advising on suitable manufacturers of these products.
Keep in mind that our consultancy services can be “tailor made” to your actual requirements. Please contact us and we can work together
to understand your needs and any budget constraints that you may have.
Our core background is the steel tubular business and we assist with both the disposal and supply of OCTG products. Our focus is on high end, specialized products that include sour service carbon, chrome and nickel alloy pipe with premium connections.
Our inventory is purchased from Oil, Gas & Geothermal operators who often have remnant pipe leftover after concluding drilling operations.
We understand that the objective of the operator is to recover as much cost as possible on all assets and we meet to discuss budget constraints and the required time frame for the disposal. We also assess if the
pipe can be used in other locations where the operator has future
In case our client wants to dispose of its inventory within a short time frame, we carry out an inspection and identify the pipe that can be sold
as prime material as well as the pipe that will have to be sold to the secondary or scrap market as a result of lost traceability or damage
that cannot be repaired. We then put together a competitive proposal
that includes the disposal of all the surplus pipe held in our client’s
If time frame is not a factor and our client prefers to try and recover more on its assets we provide a brokering service whereby we market
the material on behalf of the operator to our extensive global network. Once we find a suitable buyer, we broker the deal between the two companies. This service gives flexibility to our clients however takes more time and is dependent on market conditions and client expectations on price levels.
We are always flexible to your needs and will be pleased to coordinate the disposal of your inventory whether it be one small item or multiple wells of OCTG.
In case you have any OCTG requirements please do not hesitate to
