Oil & Gas Drill Bit

You may not have heard from Hillfoot for a while regarding supply of Oil & Gas steel grades, but we have been busy behind the scenes modifying our product and service offerings to meet the changing market demands for onshore and offshore oil & gas drilling equipment.

Our commercial and technical teams have recognised the need to provide raw material supply excellence and innovation to the purchasing requirements of our existing and prospective long-term contractual customers and supply chain partnership. We have risen to the challenge and are delighted to offer the following services

Technical Design & Metallurgical Support

Our team is available to discuss challenges you are facing in your production processes to optimise cost reduction without compromising material performance. We are time served in designing improved material offerings &/or customising standard material to meet specific industry demands.

Our new range of 4145 and 4330V steel - which is available to order now in both peeled rolled and forged sizes, with delivery from Q3 2019 onwards - is an example of how we have responded to our clients’ needs for improved yield strength to meet more demanding service conditions without increasing cost.
