High Collapse

Industry’s recognized leader for High Collapse Tubulars

High Collapse pressure (or external pressure beyond standards) are typical of critical wells due to depth, formation or temperature (Annulus Pressure build-up). For decades, Vallourec has developed process controls and collapse models backed-up by thousands of test results to deliver high collapse ratings for best-in-class performances.

Extensive offer
Our product porfolio covers all your needs, from standard wells to the most challenging projects, including in sour environments or in combination with burst loads.
Safest and most reliable products
Decades of know-how and unique quality control backed-up by thousands of test results for the highest and safest ratings on the market.
Cost effective
Reduce the weight of your string and the total cost thanks to High Collapse and High Strength grades.
Performance, application & Product Range
  • Casing strings exposed to high external pressure coming from formation, depth or temperature.
  • Deep offshore and HPHT wells exposing casing to critical combined loads.
  • Salt dome wells where shear stress can lead to very high local loads.
  • Deep wells or deviated wells sensitive to casing wear.
