Surus Inversa, through its specialized digital platform Escrapalia, has launched a public auction of 1,490 tons of pipes, casings and auxiliary material. This is surplus drilling material, which has not been used, from the Houston facilities of a Spanish global multi-energy company.
The auction, digitally available at international level, is divided into three lots of 1,000, 410 and 80 tons, each from a different source warehouse. In total, there are more than 700 components, including pipes, casings and auxiliary material. The material is mainly made of API standard steel with specifications X60, X52/50, X80, X70, Q-125, P110 and TN-125.
The sale is organized through direct bidding with potential interested parties, who will be sent a detailed dossier for analysis and are offered a visit to the warehouses, after which they can submit their bids for the material by contacting Escrapalia or through the website itself.

After the bids are submitted, the owning company will decide to whom the lots will be awarded. Afterwards, the buyer will be able to pick up the material at each of the three warehouses located in Houston, from where it will be loaded onto the buyer’s means of transport, who will assume the logistics costs of loading and transportation.
The deadline for bids is March 17, and any companies, investors and individuals are welcome to participate. In particular, this auction will spark the interest of companies involved in the extractive industry of different resources such as minerals, gases or oil; as well as other companies in related fields, who can use the unused material to carry out drilling operations. All they have to do is register for free on Escrapalia, the leading auction platform in Spain with more than 200,000 registered potential buyers.
This is not the first time that Surus has managed a sale of this type of material from the U.S.: 200 tons of similar material were sold already in 2019.
Surus Inversa, through its specialized digital platform Escrapalia, auctioned last year a total of 18,000 lots with more than 120,000 bids, from investors, companies and individuals from all over Spain, and from more than 27 countries. The company, with 100% Spanish capital and based in Pozuelo de Alarcón (Madrid), actively contributes to sustainability and the circular and local economy by providing access to goods that would otherwise be very costly to acquire.
During the more than 12 years that Surus has been operating, 98% of the assets auctioned have found a second opportunity through the circular economy thanks to companies, individuals and investors who acquired them at a lower price than the market price, generating more than 400 million euros through their reemployment.
