Without Oil Country Tubular Goods known as OCTGs, very little work would be done in the oil and gas fields of the world.  OCTGs are products used in the oil industry like pipes, casings, and tubing. These products can be both seamless and welded and are made from corrosion-resistant steel alloys that come in a variety of wall thicknesses and grades.

Oil country tubular goods (OCTG) is a family of seamless rolled products consisting of drill pipe, casing and tubing subjected to loading conditions according to their specific application
