The OCTG Inventory Situation

When it comes to accurate accounting of OCTG inventory on the ground we don’t rely on algorithms and guesswork, we rely on hard work. Every quarter The OCTG Situation Report® assesses the health of the pipe sector by measuring demand for OCTG by way of our exclusive Inventory Yard Survey: the industry benchmark and only survey of its kind in the world.


Oil & gas leaders worldwide count on our quarterly surveys for a definitive read on inventory levels of “prime” upstream OCTG throughout the U.S. supply chain. This exercise involves a large group of professionals that actually count pipe at truck terminals, mills, processor and inspection yards across the lower 48 every quarter. Our exclusive inventory survey yields:

  • Tonnage of "prime" pipe in the lower 48 states

  • OCTG tonnage composition in Texas, Louisiana & Oklahoma

  • Inventory changes in truck terminal, mill/processor, inspection and premium threading yards

  • Ownership of pipe and Q/Q tonnage changes by oil/gas companies, supply companies and mills

  • Various quarterly supply/consumption ratios – including months of OCTG supply on the ground
