Product characteristics & customer benefits

CAL IV connection

minimizes risks

  • The connection design is successfully tested according to ISO13679: 2002 CAL IV and API RP 5C5.

 

High torque capability

Ensures well integrity

  • Supplemental tests for gas sealability at yield torque were performed, also with bending (20°) and internal pressure.

 

Rotation & extended reach

VAxplorer® helps to protect against unexpected costs

  • VAxplorer® is a tailor-made product for extended reach wells and rotational operations. It withstands the severe impact on the material during rotational operations in extended reach wells and grants 100% compression and tension efficiency.
