Whether you operate in deepwater (water depth greater than 5000 feet) or in HPHT applications (Bottom Hole Pressure exceeding 15,000 psi or Bottom Hole Temperature exceeding 350°F), the quality and reliability of the OCTG products and services become paramount.
Reliability with Vallourec starts with pipes and connections designed, tested and manufactured to the highest standards (API 5C5:2017 CAL IV, API 5CT PSL 3…) with extensive track records in the most critical projects over the world.
VAM® 21 is the industry reference Threaded and Coupled premium connection for such critical applications and has been tested to temperature up to 455°F (235°C) or internal pressure up to 28 500 psi. VAM® HP connection, High Collapse or Enhanced grades have been specifically qualified to address extreme pressures typical of annulus pressure build-up, worst-case-discharge load case or challenging formations.
THERMOCASE® VIT (Vacuum Insulated Tubing) offers the highest level of thermal insulation available in down-hole tubulars and has been solution of choice to mitigate Annulus Pressure Build-up issues in many offshore or HPHT projects.
Reliability is also delivered from specific services helping to maximize well integrity while minimizing cost of challenging projects:
•Material selection service where our expertise in metallurgy and corrosion test database helps to select the safest and most economical pipe material (13Cr/S13Cr, Duplex, Super Duplex etc.)
• Tailor-made pipe inspection services (wall mapping or pipe wall segregation) and associated Vallourec.smart services to optimize pipe utilization in the well,
•Accessory support and Field Service
