NEW YORK Tenaris SA
launched two new premium connections for deepwater drilling
during the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston.
TenarisHydrils Wedge 623
connection was developed "to comply with recent changes in
deepwater operating requirements in the Gulf of Mexico" and
offers unmatched compression ratings and torque capacity, the
Luxembourg-based pipe producer said.
TenarisHydrils Blue Riser connection is its first for
riser applications in deepwater top-tensioned risers and
high-pressure-drilling riser applications, "where an
exceptional level of fatigue resistance and sealability
performance is required," it added.
