A stabbing guide helps workers to align two separate sections of drill pipe, tubing, or casing for male-to-female connection. This simple tool is vitally important in the energy industry, necessary for faster, easier stabbing and to protect threaded connections from damage.
A stabbing guide enhances your ability to maintain control and to achieve ultimate safety while guiding sections of pipe together. When you use the right guides, stabbing will be more efficient, taking up fewer man-hours to complete.
- Connections Matter
- High Quality Stabbing Guides from Keystone Energy
“Good enough” doesn’t suffice when it comes to making up pipe connections for the oil and gas industry. Inconsistently aligned and poorly connected sections create several potential problems, and can introduce some very serious safety risks. Improper alignment increases the risk of damage to threading and other surfaces.
This can lead to extensive and expensive repairs, as well as the frustrating downtime associated with them. Connections can even fail outright if they are not aligned and paired properly. In order to ensure compliance with environmental and safety standards, and to gain optimal performance from your equipment, always use an appropriate stabbing guide to facilitate connection-making.
