4 / Vallourec / About Us

Vallourec is more than a manufacturer of drilling


tubulars, supplying a complete range of proprietary
drill stem products. We also design and provide tailormade solutions to help clients succeed in increasingly
challenging well profiles and drilling programs.

Deepwater Drilling

Application
Deep offshore drilling is typically defined as drilling in a water depth that is greater than 500 feet
(150 meters). In general, rigs drilling in this environment are drillships and semisubmersibles.
Wells being drilled in deep offshore environments are in many cases extended reach and use
cutting edge industry technology.
Challenges
The offshore industrys current trend is driving towards ultra deepwater wells (as much as
12,000 feet or greater), combined with deeper total depths. As far as drilling, tensile capacity
and torque are the main challenges to address in order to drill up to TD. Large OD drill pipe,
high strength steel grades and ultra-high torque connections are premium solutions we provide
to meet any of our clients current and upcoming challenges.

Applications / Vallourec / 5

Shallow Offshore

Application
Shallow offshore drilling is typically defined as drilling in a water depth that is less than 500 feet
(150 meters). In general, rigs drilling in this environment are drilling platforms, mainly jackups,
that are able to reach the sea bottom. Wells being drilled in shallow offshore environments
are typically located in mature fields, where production has reached its peak and has started
to decline.
Challenges
Shallow offshore drilling has a specific set of
challenges including:
sea bottom pipe, equipment, and rigs are more
susceptible to corrosion, storms, high seas, and
strong currents
much of the equipment in these mature fields is
as much as 30 years old making it more
susceptible to failure
regulations and procedures for offshore work,
such as setting casing, can drive high costs for
wells in shallow water

Products & Solutions


Vallourec offers custom drill strings to meet shallow offshore challenges head-on:
high performance VAM connections that can be matched with ODs and IDs to
provide the optimized torque, tensile and hydraulic impact for the particular program
multiple grades and weights (wall thickness) to meet performance requirements
drill string products for H2S environments
drill pipe riser strings and connections to provide economic solutions for setting
casing, subsea equipment, and well testing in shallow water

6 / Vallourec / Applications

Arctic Environments

Application
Arctic environments are characterized by extreme cold winters where surface temperature
can drop below -50 C (-58 F). The five Arctic regions of Russia, Alaska, Norway, Greenland,
and Canada hold a tremendous potential for both discovered and undiscovered reserves of
Oil and Gas.
Challenges
Arctic drilling campaigns are inherently complex and challenging due to extreme low
temperatures, a narrow weather window, very high cost, and strict regulatory controls. There
is no room for error when it comes to drilling since the cost of a failure can be uncontrolled,
jeopardizing an entire drilling campaign. Standard alloy drill strings with API grades when
exposed to Arctic temperatures may become brittle and cause unpredictable failure during
transport, storage, and handling. Down-hole drill string failure could result in very expensive
non-productive time and can pose serious risks to health, safety, and the environment.

Products & Solutions


To meet these challenges Vallourec has developed proprietary steel grades with industryleading performance designed specifically for Arctic environments.
With a unique combination of high strength and high toughness at -60C/-76F, operators are
offered risk assurance against unpredictable brittle failures. Three proprietary steel grades are
available for Arctic applications:
VM-95 DP LT
VM-105 DP LT
VM-135 DP LT

Applications / Vallourec / 7

Onshore Drilling
Application
Onshore or land base drilling is defined as drilling with rigs that are moved in by ground transportation and
the drilling site is not over water. Many of these wells are now being drilled using a technique called pad
drilling where multiple wells are drilled from the same site in very close proximity of each other by shifting
the rig slightly. Typically, these are mature fields, pushing the drilling envelope farther to more challenging
well formations like new shale fields or very deep wells.
Challenges
Onshore drilling has many different challenges related to industry economics, equipment used, location of
the field, well profile and formations.
Rig day rates make running a rig expensive, which means that the speed of rigging down, moving and
rigging up is crucial to guarantee project success. Drilling equipment has to be reliable and easy to
handle on the rig floor.
The physical location of the well site sets limits on the size and type of drilling equipment and
sometimes the drill string. Well sites in Arctic areas, for example, have surface equipment and downhole
equipment that are exposed to extreme surface temperatures for long periods before use, which can
impact their performance.
Well profiles and formations determine drill string requirements:
H2S wells require use of special steels to resist Sulfide Stress Cracking.
ERD or deep wells require the drill pipe in the upper part of the string to have high tensile strength.
Extended reach wells and ultra-extended reach wells can be difficult to drill because they may be
limited by the increased torque and drag of the drill string.
Small clearance wells will drive Equivalent Circulating Density (ECD) higher, put additional stress on
formations and increase circulation pressures.

Products & Solutions


Vallourec offers custom drill strings to meet onshore challenges head-on:
High performance VAM connections that can be matched with ODs and IDs to provide optimized torque,
tensile and hydraulic impact for the particular program.
multiple grades and weights (wall thickness):
High strength grade thin wall drill pipe can be used to produce light weight drill strings with
high strength-to-weight ratio for extended reach wells.
High strength grade thick wall drill pipe can be used to produce high strength drill strings for deep wells
requiring high tensile capacity.

Unconventional Drilling

Application
Thanks to advances in horizontal drilling and multi-stage hydraulic fracking that have enabled
the economic production of unconventional oil, gas, and natural gas liquids, US shale plays have
become an international success story. Cost concerns, however, remain a real issue. The industry
is constantly improving technology and practices to optimize well placement, reduce drilling
costs, and increase production. Drill string optimization opens up vast areas of improvement in
drilling rate of penetration, consistent buildup rates, and efficient hydraulics ultimately driving
down drilling costs.
Challenges
Shale reservoir characteristics are quite complex, with each shale play offering its own unique
combination of drilling challenges. Most well profiles are characterized by a sharp build-up
section from the vertical, followed by a long lateral section.
Drilling programs usually face similar challenges:
excessive drill string buckling
high side forces
high torque and drag
difficulty in orienting
reduced rate of penetration
circulation loss

ineffective hole cleaning


excessive pipe belly wear
vibrations and stick-slip
short tubular life
increased cost of operation
difficulty getting weight on bit

Products & Solutions


Vallourec offers an innovative and proprietary drill
string solution that optimizes drilling for both the
intermediate and horizontal sections with greater
efficiency. Our Shale Drill Pipe addresses drill
string buckling issues without excessively
increasing the string weight or torque.
This results in:
effective transfer of surface weight on bit
without causing buckling
higher rates of penetration
better trajectory control
better hole cleaning efficiency due to higher
annular velocity for same flow rates
significant reduction in standpipe pressure for
same flow rates
higher standoff resulting in lower side forces on
the tube
improved wear resistance
longer service life
lower total cost of ownership

For the ever present challenge of hole


cleaning in wells with long horizontal
sections, Vallourec offers a range of
mechanical hole cleaning devices under
our Hydroclean product line offering
the following advantages:
reduced torque and drag
improved ECD control
reduces risk for loss of circulation
improved control of weight on bit

including our well known VAM
Express premium connection, are
available on all products including
Hydrocean products to ensure
maximum torsional capacity and
hydraulics efficiency when drilling
horizontal wells.
Applications / Vallourec / 9

Extended Reach Drilling

Application
Extended Reach Drilling (ERD) configurations allow drilling into reservoirs where vertical access is
difficult or impossible whether it is onshore or offshore. ERD allows multiple subsurface locations
to be reached using only one drilling pad, which reduces the environmental impact.
ERD configurations allow the drilling of:
very shallow high build rate (>6/100ft)
very long high angle (>55)
complex well design turns, drops, etc. and
deepwater >3,000ft
Challenges
Advances in drilling and drill pipe technology requirements to drill complex horizontal and ERD
well profiles are continuously pushing for extended capabilities of the drill string. Demands for
performance capabilities include increased tensile strength-to-weight ratios and high-torque
connections to overcome frictional drag forces and achieve improved hydraulic performance,
rate of penetration, control of well trajectory, and optimal hole cleaning. These challenges are best
addressed through a drilling optimization approach, with hole cleaning at its center.

Products & Solutions


Vallourec Drilling Products offers a wide range of products to meet the challenges of ERD well
formations head-on:
Hydroclean products for continuous well bore cleaning during drilling
high performance VAM connections that can be matched with ODs and IDs to provide the
optimized torque, tensile, and hydraulics for all drilling programs
multiple grades and weights (wall thickness):
High strength grade thin wall drill pipe can be used to produce light weight drill strings
with high strength-to-weight ratio for extend reach wells.
High strength grade thick wall drill pipe can be used to produce high strength drill strings
for deep wells requiring high tensile capacity.
Special sized drill pipe can be used for optimized hydraulics, clearance, and collapse in
extended reach wells.
10 / Vallourec / Applications

Sour Service Environments

Application
Sour Service refers to a well environment containing Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), which can
significantly impact steel drilling tubular performance. It is also well known that H2S is hazardous
to human health, living organisms and generally to the environment.
Historically, this is the reason wells found with Sour gas were often carefully plugged and
abandoned. With the increasing demand for domestic gas worldwide, some major Sour fields
are now being explored and developed.
Challenges
The physical phenomenon associated with Sour Service environments and affecting steel based
products under applied or residual stress is known as H2S embrittlement or more specifically as
Sulfide Stress Cracking (SSC).
H2S in combination with water and low pH will react with pipe surface, releasing free hydrogen,
which can be absorbed through the steels surface. At this point, hydrogen particles diffuse
further into the steel matrix and interact with the steel itself, making it brittle.
The key factors leading to SSC are elevated H2S content, low temperatures, low pH, and the high
stress state of the material (tensile stress). When these factors are combined, a crack can initiate
in the material and propagate until catastrophic failure, even when stresses are substantially
inferior to the yield limit of the material.
Specially designed drill pipe and BHA grades are essential to guarantee the necessary H2S
resistance and to ensure the safety of those working in such harsh environments.

Products & Solutions


Vallourecs Sour Service proprietary grades are renowned for their performance. Our extensive
research, development facilities, and our internationally recognized expertise have combined to
produce outstanding critical service material.
Today, Vallourec is able to guarantee the superior performance of its material in the toughest sour
environments around the world. Due to the astringency of the Sour environment, particular attention
needs to be paid when selecting and characterizing adapted Sour Service steel grades. Controlling
critical manufacturing parameters is also a requirement to ensure superior product performance.
Steel microstructure, chemical composition, cleanliness, and heat treatment process controls are
essential for high sulfide stress cracking resistance. Such proprietary grades largely exceed the
resistance of API grades to SSC and are being manufactured according to several industry
standards such as NACE TM0177 and IRP 1.8.
We offer three levels of resistance to Sour Service environments defined in the NACE MR-0175-2004
industry standard:
MS level: Mild Sour
S level: Intermediate Sour
SS level: Severe Sour the SS level is fully compliant with IRP 1.8 requirements

Applications / Vallourec / 11

Core Drilling

Application
Coring or core drilling involves processes to retrieve formation samples for study. There are
two methods for core drilling:
Sidewall coring uses special drills that remove plugs from the formation walls. These plugs
are circulated to the surface to be retrieved from the returning drilling mud.
Through-bit coring involves using a bit with an open ID to drill through the formation to form
a sample. The sample is broken off and retrieved using a core barrel to carry it through the
drill pipe ID to the surface. These samples may be 5 to 20 feet long.
Challenges
The main challenge related to core drilling is providing a large ID through the drill pipe to allow
easy retrieval of core barrels.

Products & Solutions


Vallourec provides a variety of drill pipe
connections available with large IDs:
VAM CDS and VAM EIS are API
based double shoulder connections that
even with large IDs still match pipe
performance characteristics.
VAM Express is a proprietary thread
with the largest possible ID to provide
clearance with the unmatched strength
of a high strength drill pipe.
Full integration with Vallourec hot rolling
mills and control of tool joint forgings allows
to design and manufacture drill strings with
customized IDs. This allows drill strings with
specific IDs and clearances for running and
retrieving large coring tools.

Geothermal Drilling

Application
Geothermal energy uses the earths thermal energy generated and stored in the earths
geology from the core to the surface. Steam, hot water and minerals are some of the most
important direct products of geothermal resources. Convenient access to this energy source
is concentrated at the margins of the earths tectonic plates where conventional drilling
techniques and equipment can best be exploited. Geothermal drilling is used to access this
stored energy through a process of creating boreholes in the earth to extract the earths heat.
Most of todays geothermal drilling projects are located in continental Europe, the Philippines,
Indonesia, New Zealand, and the Americas.
Challenges
Geothermal well profiles are characterized as challenging. Hydrogen sulphide, high torsion,
high temperatures and punishing wear are a few of the extreme conditions, which may be
experienced during geothermal drilling. The extremely hard and abrasive rock formations
found in geothermal wells result in torsion levels and equipment wear which may be higher
than those found in oil and gas drilling.

Products & Solutions


Vallourec offers custom drill strings to meet
geothermal challenges head-on:
high performance VAM connections
We offer our VAM CDS, VAM EIS and
VAM Express high torque double
shoulder connections.
Hardbanding products are applied to tool
joints and upsets/wear pads as a hard and
extremely abrasion-resistant sacrificial layer.
We offer alloy steel and tungsten carbide
hardband products to suit the drilling conditions
and specific client requirements from our
portfolio of proprietary hardband products
and specialist manufacturers.

Applications / Vallourec / 13

Completions

Application
Completion is the process of making a well ready for production or injection. This principally
involves running in the casing, liners, cementing, running in production tubing, and its associated
downhole tools as well as perforating and stimulating as required. Today, enhanced drill pipe
products provide more torque and tension capacity, improved hydraulics, and full gas-tight
pressure ratings, replacing commonly used completion tubing. In addition, the increasing desire
to land heavy casing strings approaching 2 million lbs or heavier in deepwater environments has
generated tubular design challenges that have been met with out of the box designs including
heavy wall, crush free slip sections, and double diameter tool joints.
Challenges
Whether operating in the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico or South America fields, high temperature,
high pressure (HTHP) wells present unique challenges to oil and service companies. Drilling
and completing a well at 4,000 to 12,000-foot water depths is no easy task. The depth requires
increasingly higher flow rates without damaging the wellbore, which raise wellhead temperatures.

Products & Solutions


Vallourec offers custom drill strings to meet completion challenges head-on:
When drill pipe is needed, our proprietary VAM Express connection design provides gastightness up to 5,000 PSI differential working pressure.
Drill pipe risers have been designed to enable well maintenance, to run Christmas trees and
tubing hanger installations, as well as production testing for deep offshore operations worldwide.
Vallourec drill pipe risers feature our VAM DPR SR and VAM DPR HP connections, which
provide high tension efficiency, extreme fatigue resistance, and a gas-tight seal rated up to
10,000 PSI and 15,000 PSI respectively. VAM DPR SR and VAM DPR HP can also be used
in any land or offshore well for production testing as an alternative to tubing strings with Teflon
or metal-to-metal seals.
Our CrushFree Landing String solution is capable of landing heavy loads up to 2.5 million
lbs while ensuring the absence of slip damage. Under extremely heavy loads, such as the ones
seen during deepwater operations, the slips can damage the pipe, and in extreme scenarios
even completely crush the pipe section; this phenomenon is called slip crushing.
The main advantages of our solution are:
The combination of an extended crush free section and the absence of a heat affected
zone decreases running time while completely eliminating the risk of setting the slips on
a weak point.
A versatile design allowing fit-for-purpose crush free section lengths, suitable for extended
slips, which are currently being introduced to the market.
The absence of a weld in the crush free zone allows the drilling contractor to place the
elevator and slips quicker, hence reducing non-productive time.

VAM Express

Operational Challenges
Advances in drilling and drill pipe technology
requirements to drill complex horizontal and
extended reach drilling (ERD) well profiles are
continuously pushing for extended capabilities
of the drill string. Demands for performance
capabilities include increased tensile
strength-to-weight ratios and high-torque
connections to overcome frictional drag
forces and achieve improved hydraulic
performance, rate of penetration, control of
well trajectory, and optimal hole cleaning.

Drilling deeper and farther in complex and tortuous


wells can have real consequences including:
critical tension issues
high-torque load needs that go beyond the
capabilities of conventional high-torque connections
combined loading issues
casing wear
reduced life span of drilling tools

The Solution: A Connection Designed to Drill Farther, Faster


The VAM Express (VX) connection incorporates a proprietary
thread profile with a high-performance double shoulder design
making it the most rugged high-torque connection available today:
TM

The primary torque shoulder provides initial seal and pre-load


and the secondary torque shoulder provides high-torque capability.
The user-friendly proprietary VX thread form design features a
laid-back 40 stabbing flank, 1 reverse crest angle, true elliptical
root radius of 0.065", and a shallow chamfer with a 4 taper on the
pin nose.

VAM Express-M2M

Operational Challenges
The petroleum industrys growing need for gas-tight connections is being driven by complex wells requiring
drill stem testing, high pressure completions and fracturing jobs or managed pressure/underbalanced
drilling operations.
In all of these cases, safety and well integrity accentuate the need for a connection with gas-tight capabilities.
Today, gas-tight solutions are used in most deep offshore wells. There are, however, few solutions on the
market that give drilling contractors and operators the flexibility to move seamlessly between drilling and
completion operations thereby improving efficiency and presenting significant cost savings.

The Solution: VAM Express-M2M the highest performing


gas-tight connection existing on the market
VAM Express-M2M is Vallourecs high performance gas-tight
connection.
It combines the high pressure capability of a drill pipe riser with
the robustness of our top-of-the-line VAM Express double
shoulder rotary connection.
This unique connection combines performance and ease of use,
giving clients the flexibility to safely use the same string for both
drilling and completion operations.

VAM EIS

Operational Challenges
Standard API connections have shown their limitations, both in terms of reach and in terms of
hydraulic efficiency when drilling complex wells in challenging environments. Proprietary rotary double
shoulder connections with API thread forms provide the extra performance capabilities necessary to
facilitate drilling in all environments including extended reach or ultra-deep wells and deepwater
drilling, especially when combined with Sour Service or Arctic conditions.

The Solution: A Connection Designed for Greater Drilling Capabilities


VAM EIS is a high-torque, double-shoulder connection that is fully
intermateable with API connections. As additional torque is applied, the
pin nose makes contact with the internal shoulder. The internal shoulder
absorbs the higher frictional load, providing the connection with
improved torque capability. VAM EIS high strength double shoulder
connections from Vallourec set a new connection performance standard
at cost efficiencies similar to that of API connections.
The additional torsional strength provides exceptional performance in
the most difficult well conditions, such as highly deviated or extended
reach wells. This design also benefits service life with a significantly
greater wear capability.
VAM EIS is available in drill pipe sizes from 2-7/8 to 6-5/8 OD, including 5-7/8 and 4-1/4, as well as
in a wide range of steel grades, including sour service, low temperature and high strength.

Operational Challenges
Maturing fields are pushing the drilling envelope and require assets with a greater safety and performance
margin. Even land based drilling has its own set of challenges including many wells now being drilled
using a technique called pad drilling where multiple wells are drilled from the same site in very close
proximity of each other by shifting the rig slightly.

Sour Service Grades

Operational Challenges
The physical phenomenon associated with Sour Service environments and affecting steel based
products under applied or residual stress is known as H2S embrittlement or more specifically
as Sulfide Stress Cracking (SSC). H2S in combination with water and low pH will react with pipe
surface, releasing free hydrogen, which can be absorbed through the steels surface. At this point,
hydrogen particles diffuse further into the steel matrix and interact with the steel itself, which
becomes brittle. The key factors leading to SSC are elevated H2S content, low temperatures,
low pH, and the high stress state of material (tensile stress). When these factors are combined, a
crack can initiate in the material and propagate causing catastrophic failure, even when stresses
are substantially inferior to the yield limit of the material.
Specially designed drill pipe and BHA grades are essential to guaranteeing the necessary H2S
resistance within the steel and to ensure the safety of those working in such harsh environments.

The Solution: Specific Drill String Components Providing


Higher Performance and Safety Margins
Vallourecs Sour Service proprietary grades are renowned for their performance. Our extensive
research and development facilities, and our internationally recognized expertise combine to produce
outstanding critical service material. We are able to guarantee the superior performance of our
material in the toughest sour environments around the world.
Due to the astringency of sour environments, particular attention needs to be paid when selecting
and characterizing adapted Sour Service steel grades. Controlling critical manufacturing parameters
is also a requirement to ensure superior product performance. Steel microstructure, chemical
composition, cleanliness, and heat treatment process controls are essential for high sulfide stress
cracking resistance. Such proprietary grades largely exceed the resistance of API grades to SSC, and
are being manufactured according to several industry standards such as NACE TM0177 and IRP 1.8.
We offer three levels of resistance to Sour Service environments:
MS level: Mild Sour
S level: Intermediate Sour

Performance Comparison
Vallourec Sour Service drill pipe provides superior resistance to H2S as compared to standard grade drill pipe.
Our standard offer is based on grades with 95 to 105 KSI Specified Minimum Yield Strength, with an improved
resistance to H2S including severe sour environments. Our SS level is fully compliant with the latest edition of
the Canadian IRP Volume 1 standard. The use of high strength drill pipe is essential to achieving drilling objectives
in an increasing number of reservoirs explored or developed with complex well profiles. Because higher strength
is generally detrimental to Sulfide Stress Cracking, we have developed the high strength Sour Service grades
VM-120 DP MS and VM-120 DP S. These grades are a technological breakthrough and the result of years of
research and development and industrial tests.

Due to the increasing demand for hydrocarbons worldwide, some highly sour oil and gas reservoirs are being
explored with H2S content beyond what could have been imagined a decade ago. In order to explore, appraise
and develop these new fields, new highly engineered drill string solutions are needed to increase safety margins
related to Sulfide Stress Cracking (SSC) failure risks, especially in the upset and the weld zones. Thanks to years
of research and development, Vallourec has proudly developed its first Sour Service product with enhanced
SSC resistance in the upset and weld zones. Qualified with rigorous NACE testings; these two grades named

Arctic Grades

Applications
Drilling in the Arctic region presents unique challenges including a narrow weather window to
operate with extreme low surface temperatures, a highly fragile environment protected by strict
regulatory controls, and the very high cost of operations and failure prevention. Combined, these
challenges leave no room for complacency while planning an Arctic drilling campaign.
Risks associated with drilling tubulars are accentuated during transportation, storage, and
surface handling in the permafrost region. Off-the-shelf drill strings may be exposed to
temperature conditions outside the ductile plateau increasing the risks for embrittlement failure.
These brittle fractures can cause unpredictable failures and costly nonproductive time (NPT).
In order to mitigate risks and increase reliability in such harsh surface conditions, Vallourec has
successfully developed and deployed proprietary Arctic steel grades with a unique combination
of high strength and high ductility at temperatures as low as -60C (-76F).
Operational Challenges
tough oil spill prevention regulations
risky and costly operations within a narrow weather window
equipment exposed to extreme temperatures
costly impact of non-productive time (NPT) due to remoteness, high transportation costs and
limited infrastructure

High Strength Grades

Applications & Challenges


Complex drilling environments, including ultra-deep and extended reach wells, deep offshore,
and high pressure conditions, are a challenge for drilling contractors and operators. For the most
challenging drilling projects, Vallourec Drilling Products has developed high-strength grades
including VM-140 DP, VM-150 DP, and VM-165 DP. High-strength grades are ideal when lighter
drill pipe are required to minimize torque and drag in ultra-extended reach wells. Reducing wall
thickness also improves hydraulic programs, making it easier to reach drilling targets efficiently.

The Solution: High Stength Steel Grades to Drill Extended Reach Wells
High-strength steel grades are a type of alloy steel that provides better mechanical properties
than API carbon steel. Alloy elements are added to the steel during the smelting process for
strengthening purposes. This eliminates the toughness-reducing effect while increasing the
material's strength by refining the grain size.
Performance Comparisons
Vallourec high strength grade materials are characterized by:
superior proprietary chemistry
precise manufacturing processes from steelmaking to heat treatment
improved tensile and torsional strengths
improved fracture toughness
lighter pipe bodies

Operational Benefits
Vallourec Drilling Products guarantees the superior mechanical properties of its steel alloys
through proprietary chemistry, strict quality procedures, and true vertical integration from
steelmaking to drill pipe heat treatment and dedicated manufacturing process controls.
High-strength grades provide greater tensile strength while maintaining better impact strength.
By using high-strength material to reduce tube body wall thickness, lighter drill pipe joints can
be manufactured without compromising mechanical performance. When stronger tubulars are
needed for ultra-deep or landing string applications, high strength grade materials offer additional
tensile capacity and impact strength compared to API grades.

Drill Pipe Performance Datasheet


Overview
The Drill Pipe Performance Datasheet is an easy-to-use document
summarizing the performances and other technical characteristics of
drill pipe manufactured by Vallourec. This document provides key
characteristics such as tensile strength, torsional strength, and makeup torque range, as well as other product-specific performance data.

Dimensions and Material

An overview of some additional information available in the Drill Pipe


Performance Datasheet is shown here.
Wear Data

Useful datasheet definitions:


Premium Tool Joint OD: The actual tool joint OD to meet 0.80
torsional ratio of a premium pipe, or the specific tool joint OD
determined by the initial connection OD.

Performance Data

Torsional Ratio: The ratio of the connection torsional strength


divided by the pipe body torsional strength. API recommends a ratio of
0.80 or larger.
Balance OD: The tool joint OD where the yield of the box is equal to
the yield of the pin for a given tool joint ID.
Combined Load Chart: Chart used to determine the operation zone for tool joint in tension and torque.
Elevator Capacity: Chart used to determine the elevator capacity, assuming a 1.1 safety factor.
Wear Chart: Chart used to determine the recommended make-up torque for worn products.

Heavy Weight Drill Pipe


The Solution: Transitional and Compressive Load Member
Vallourecs heavy weight drill pipe (HWDP) features a tool joint pin and box and a thick-walled tube with a raised
central section for wellbore protection of the tube. The central section comes in various designs; slick, spiral, full
spiral, or tri-spiral. HWDP can be manufactured as a welded assembly or machined integral from bars.
HWDP in the bottom-hole assembly (BHA) provide a gradual transition between drill pipe and drill collars. Its main
function is to transfer surface weight-on-bit (WOB) and pipe rotation to the drilling assembly. It also mitigates drill
string fatigue and provides directional control of the BHA. In addition, Heavy Weight Drill Pipe can be used to push
or force liners/screens down holeduring drilling operations.
Applications
Vertical Drilling
weight-on-bit and compressive load member
transitional and fatigue resistant member
replacement of drill collars
Directional, Horizontal, and Extended Reach Drilling
weight-on-bit and compressive load member
differential sticking and drill string lock-up prevention
directional control of BHA
Remedial Operations
provide the weight required for milling, under-reaming,
and hole-opening operations

Heavy Weight Spiral Drill Pipe (HWSP)


Vallourecs heavy weight spiral drill pipe (HWSP) is designed to address differential sticking in vertical and
directional drilling environments. Different central upset designs and spiraling configurations are available (spiral,
full spiral and tri-spiral) to reduce buckling, risks of differential sticking, improve hole cleaning, and BHA stiffness.
Materials
Vallourec provides HWDP in standard, Sour Service, Arctic or non-magnetic grades.
Standard heavy weight drill pipe (HWDP) is supplied with AISI 1340 steel or equivalent in the pipe body and
AISI 4145H-modified tool joints. The welded assembly is the standard offer whereas the integral version is
considered optional due to plant availability.
ERS 425 proprietary steel bar grade has been developed to provide resistance to Sulfide Stress Cracking
(SSC) for BHA products improving impact strength and fracture toughness. The resistance to sulfide stress
cracking significantly surpasses the resistance of AISI 4145H-modified/4140H-modified steel as shown in
NACE test TM0177. The ERS 425 HWDP provides superior performance in Sour Service applications and
continues to be used around the world.
Integral non-magnetic HWDP made of Amagnit 501 is also offered for directional drilling applications.

Heavy Weight Drill Pipe / Vallourec / 89

Heavy Weight Drill Pipe Performance Datasheet


Overview
The Heavy Weight Drill Pipe Performance Datasheet is an easy-to-use document summarizing the performances
and other technical characteristics of HWDPs manufactured by Vallourec. This document provides key
performance characteristics such as tensile strength, torsional strength and make-up torque range, as well as
other product-specific performance data.
An overview of some additional information available in the HWDP Performance Datasheet is shown below.
Useful datasheet definitions:
Torsional Ratio: The ratio of the connection torsional strength divided by the pipe body torsional strength.
API recommends a ratio of 0.80 or larger.
Balance OD: The tool joint OD where the yield of the box is equal to the yield of the pin for a given tool joint ID.
Bending Strength Ratio (BSR): This bending criteria is defined in the API spec RP7G as an inertia ratio between
pin and box connection. A rotary shouldered connection that has a BSR of 2.5 (or 2.5:1) is generally accepted as
an average balanced connection.
Combined Load Chart: Chart used to determine the operation zone for tool joint in tension and torque.
Wear Chart: Chart used to determine the recommended make-up torque for worn products.

Drill Collars
The Solution: Transitional and Compressive Load Member
Vallourec drill collars are thick-walled tubulars machined from
solid steel bars and manufactured to specifications to meet
and/or exceed API or NS-1 requirements. The quality of the
heat treatment is critical in the production of raw materials and
must be uniform and deep enough through the thickness of
the bar to ensure the mechanical properties.
Drill collars are used as a component of the bottom-hole
assembly (BHA) and provide the following:
drilling weight-on-bit (WOB)
BHA directional control
hole size integrity
stiffness to maintain hole straightness
clearance for the drill string
compressive and torsional loads
mitigate differential sticking and stuck pipe thanks
to spiraled grooves

Product Performance
Drill collars come in slick and spiral-grooved designs with additional features for safe surface-handling and
trouble-free operations. We provide the full range of collars manufactured in AISI 4145H-modified steel with
mechanical properties guaranteed 1 inch below steel surface at ambient temperature.

Spiral Design
In order to reduce differential pressure sticking and wellbore contact, the surface of drill collars can be
spiral-grooved. Spiral drill collars are the perfect solution for deep, directional or deviated drilling. Cross
sections of the drill collars reduce the contact area with the wall of the hole.

Drill Collar Performance Datasheet


Overview
The Drill Collar Performance Datasheet is an easy-to-use document summarizing the performances and other
technical characteristics of drill collars manufactured by Vallourec.
This document provides key performance characteristics such as tensile strength, torsional strength, and make-up
torque range, as well as other product specific performance data.
An overview of some additional information available in the Drill Collar Performance Datasheet is shown below.
Useful datasheet definition:
Bending Strength Ratio (BSR): This bending criteria is defined in the API spec RP7G as an inertia ratio between
pin and box connection. A rotary shouldered connection that has a BSR of 2.5 (or 2.5:1) is generally accepted as
an average balanced connection.

Hole Cleaning

Extended Reach Deviated and Horizontal Wells


Extended Reach Drilling (ERD) wells are commonly defined by the envelope of well profiles
where the ratios of lateral displacements over true vertical depths are greater than two. These
wells commonly intersect multiple subsurface reservoir targets and have complex trajectory
configurations, high build rates (above 6/100ft or 30 meters) and high inclinations (>45) including
an extended horizontal section.
Operational Challenges
While hole-cleaning is commonly
understood and a well-known
phenomenon many drillers still have
difficulty managing the entire process.
Experience reveals that less than optimal
hole-cleaning can lead to performance
inefficiencies impacting non-productive
time, borehole quality or even to the loss
of the drill string and well. The paradox
with maintaining cuttings in the hole to
acceptable levels is that buildups will go
unnoticed until symptoms from the well
signal a growing problem.

Unfortunately, hole-cleaning after drilling


can be time consuming. Main hole-cleaning
challenges include:
managing fracture gradients
minimizing equivalent circulating density (ECD)
reducing torque and drag
mitigating tight-hole & stuck pipe
increasing wellbore stability
avoiding hydraulic fracturing
maximizing drill time & average ROP
trouble-free casing runs

The Solutions: Hydroclean - Hydroclean Max - Hydroclean Sub


Each Hydroclean product is designed for specific applications featuring a bladed scallop design
to mechanically erode stagnating cutting beds and to increase cuttings transport to the surface
while drilling. Performance depends on several factors including optimal placement
in the drill string. The results are faster and safer drilling with less time spent on cleanups.

Hole Cleaning / Vallourec / 101

Hydroclean
Hydroclean is a hydro-mechanical hole-cleaning tool designed to remove stagnating cutting beds while
drilling holes in highly deviated wells, thereby increasing hole-cleaning efficiency and drilling performance.
Operations data indicate that holes with inclinations between 40-75 degrees are the most difficult to clean.
This product is field proven and is predominantly used to drill complex wells offshore.
Hydroclean has two design configurations including drill pipe (HDP) and heavy weight drill pipe (HHW). Both are
manufactured in lengths of R2 and R3, feature a dual OD tool joint and bladed upsets machined onto the pipe body.
Hole-cleaning is achieved via three hydro-mechanical effects combining scooping of cutting beds, maintaining
continuous flow of cuttings above the drill string in the high velocity annular space, and sustaining the conveyor
belt effect for transport to the surface. Sufficient joints need to be used and spaced throughout the drill string.

Hydroclean Max
Hydroclean Max is a new generation drill pipe designed to increase hole-cleaning efficiencies in horizontal
and ERD wells. This pipe uniquely addresses annular pressure and ECD issues resulting from stationary cutting
beds deposited along the wellbore. No other drill pipe can provide these benefits, without compromise or
performance loss. The Hydroclean Max comes standard in R2 and R3 lengths with VAM proprietary
connections. It is economically justifiable for land drilling, including shale plays, and applicable offshore.
The Hydroclean Max drill pipe (HMax DP) and Hydroclean Max heavy weight (HMax HW) feature specially
designed scallops in each tool joint producing a number of hydro-mechanical effects that remove residual cutting
beds and maintain continuous transport of cuttings to the surface.

Hole Cleaning / Vallourec / 103

Hydroclean Sub
Hydroclean Sub is an accessory designed to increase hole-cleaning performance in high angle and horizontal
wells. It is primarily designed for land operations.
Hydroclean Sub features specially designed scallops machined on the body upset with a dual OD. The sub
produces a combination of hydro-mechanical effects to remove residual cutting beds and to maintain continuous
transport of cuttings to the surface. Sufficient subs are needed and must be spaced appropriately throughout
the drill string.
The dual OD provides:
blade protection from the borehole
increased pipe offset in the wellbore
lower friction
Placement recommendations can be provided by Vallourec following review of the well plan, drill string
design and drilling parameters.

EasyLanding Strings

Operational Challenges
As demand for energy continues to increase, the search for vital energy resources is expanding
further offshore into harsher and deeper waters. Traditionally, heavy duty drill pipe were used
as landing string in order to set and run larger and heavier casing strings in shallower water
operations. Nowadays, however, some operating companies are pioneering exploration and
development projects in water depths up to 12,000 ft, which involves a large number of
technological challenges. Under extremely heavy loads found during deepwater operations,
for instance, the slips1 can damage pipe, and, in worst case scenarios, possibly even
completely crush the pipe section in a phenomenon called slip crushing.

The Solution: Our Versatile EasyLanding String


A landing string is a heavy duty thick wall drill pipe which can be used not only for drilling,
but also to land heavy casing strings in the well or heavy equipment on the sea bed.
Vallourecs EasyLanding products offer a variety of drill pipe-based designs to be used
as slip crushing resistant landing strings. These landing strings typically exhibit large ODs
(up to 6-5/8), proprietary high strength steel grades such as VM-150 DP & VM-165 DP,
and heavy wall sections (up to 0.938 wall).
Operational Benefits
Vallourec has been designing and manufacturing these types of strings for over 10 years in
nominal sizes of 5 or larger and with wall thicknesses that exceed 1. We can provide high
performance fit-for-purpose solutions for various offshore challenges. Running casing and
subsea equipment installations has never been safer or more reliable.

Slips are used to grip pipe on the rotary table

Operational Challenges
From Drill Pipe to Landing Strings
Traditionally, thick-walled drill pipe were used as landing string in order to perform completion and
intervention operations in shallow waters. In deeper waters however, these conventional landing strings
cannot withstand higher hook loads due to a phenomenon called slip crushing. This phenomenon is a
major problem which needs to be addressed when designing landing strings and slips . As a result of
biaxial loads, stress concentrations may damage, and in some cases even crush, the pipe, hence
reducing the axial load rating of the landing string.
Beyond Friction Welded Landing Strings
One of the current operational challenges with existing friction welded landing strings is linked to the
positioning of slips with sufficient distance from both the weld area and the heat affected zone. The
limited length available for setting the slips requires additional time for proper positioning and set up.
This is particularly problematic when using extended slip designs, recently introduced to the industry.

The Solution: 2.5 Million Pound CrushFree Landing String Weld-Free Design

Product Performance

Dimensions and Materials

The design performances have been assessed using:

Light Weight Pipe

The Spiri Reinhold Equation: the most widely


accepted formula to predict slip crushing.
Finite Element Analysis on the slip areas, the
elevator shoulders and the connection threads.
A full-scale physical trial performed jointly with
a renowned slip manufacturer in Germany, using a
specifically designed pulling unit. The design has
been tested under 2.5 million pounds (1,250 short
tons) and a load of up to 4.4 million pounds
(exceeding the yield tension of the thick walled
tube section).
Our full scale test results have been compared
to those obtained with both the Finite Element
Analysis and have confirmed the expected
performances of the CrushFree Landing
String prototypes under 2.5 million pounds
load capacity.
TM

Operational Benefits
slip crushing resistance up to 2.5 million pounds
no specific handling tools required compared to
conventional landing strings
no weld integrity risk due to the combination
of an extended crush resistant section and the
absence of a heat affected zone
versatile design allowing fit-for-purpose crush
resistant section lengths suitable for new
extended slips
save time and money with our weld free zone
which allows for quick elevator and slip placement
reducing non-productive time

Kelly Cock Valves

Application and General Use


Kelly Cock Valves are devices that allow for shutting the internal bore of the drill string keeping the mud
column in the top drive or the Kelly when disconnecting from the drill string. It controls the flow of the
mud during normal drilling operations and is operated from the rig floor. Standard configurations include
two Kelly Cock Valves; an upper Kelly Valve and lower Kelly Valve.

Product Description
The Kelly Cock Valve is designed and manufactured as a one-piece or
a two-piece Kelly Valve for free-passage and maximum circulation of the
drilling fluid minimizing pressure loss.
Kelly Cock Valves are supplied with either API or proprietary connections.
All Kelly Cock Valves are manufactured according to the latest edition of
the API 7-1 or NS1 specification.
KC2S Kelly Valves are available in either standard or H2S resistant versions
and are supplied according to Class 1 construction.
Main Features
simple construction for trouble-free operations and easy servicing
sealed lubrication packing
10,000 or 15,000 PSI working pressure (testing pressure 15,000
and 22,500 PSI respectively)
KC2S Kelly Valves are delivered with an operating wrench and
disassembly tool
Other configurations available upon request, subject to engineering
department approval.

Hydraulic Testing
Each Kelly Valve is hydraulically bench tested according to API spec 7-1 (latest edition) and delivered
with its individual pressure test records.
The tests are carried out in two steps:
SHELL TESTING during which the valve is pressurized to the test pressure for 3 minutes, then
depressurized and pressurized again for at least 10 minutes.
SEAT TESTING during which the valve is pressurized from the pin end to its working pressure for at
least 5 minutes.
During the pressure-holding period timing starts when pressure stabilization is achieved. No visually
detectable leakage is permitted during the test time period and the pressure drop shall be no greater
than maximum 1% of the pressure test value with a zero leak rate.

Operational Benefits
Vallourec offers KC2S Kelly Valves with PTFE rings inserted in both upper and lower seats, which provide high
sealing capability, even at low pressures. KC2S internal parts are made of high grade heat treated stainless
steel. The design of the body limits plug rotation to 90 between open and closed positions. Two KC2S
versions are offered to suit drilling environments:
The standard version for normal drilling conditions with an inside surface treated to enhance mud corrosion
resistance and maintenance operations.
The H2S trim version which has been designed for H2S environments with internal parts made of corrosion
resistant materials matching the NACE MR0175 standard (latest edition), fitted in a standard body.
Full NACE available upon request.

Inside Blowout Preventer (I-BOP)


Application and General Use
Wells can at times experience unpredictable pressure differentials causing flow into the well bore that can
potentially be catastrophic for the rig and rig personnel, if uncontrolled. Safety Valves are an essential
component to maintaining the safety of the well and drilling operations. Safety Valves are configured in the
drill string and used on the rig floor and down-hole to manage safe operations while controlling kicks and
preventing back flow of the drilling mud during the drilling process.

Product Description
The Inside Blowout Preventer (I-BOP) Valve is a heavy duty check valve connected to the drill string for use
on the rig floor level to protect from kicks at surface. It can be left in the drill string as long as necessary to
reestablish well control with over-balanced pressure.
I-BOP valves are supplied with either API or with proprietary connections.
All I-BOP valves are manufactured to API 7-1 or NS1 latest edition.
I-BOP valves are available in both standard or H2S resistant versions and
supplied according to Class 1 construction.
Main Features
OD sizes ranging from 3-3/8 to 9-1/2
ID sizes ranging from 1-1/2 to 2-13/16
10,000 or 15,000 PSI working pressure (testing pressure 15,000 or
22,500 PSI respectively)

The I-BOP product range


comes with 4 sizes
corresponding to internal
part dimensions as follows:

VALVE SEAT ID (IN)

Trim 1

1-1/2

Trim 2

1-3/4

Trim 3

2-1/4

Trim 4

2-13/16

Other configurations available upon request, subject to engineering department approval.

Hydraulic Testing
Each I-BOP valve is hydraulically bench tested according to API spec 7-1 (latest edition) and delivered
with its individual pressure record sheets.
The pressure test is carried out in two steps:
SHELL TESTING during which the valve is pressurized to the test pressure for 3 minutes, then
depressurized and pressurized again for at least 10 minutes (see figures 1 & 2).
SEAT TESTING during which the valve is pressurized from the pin end to its working pressure for
at least 5 minutes (see figures 1 & 2).
During the pressure-holding period, timing starts when pressure stabilization is achieved. No visually
detectable leakage is permitted during the test time period and pressure drop shall be no greater than
maximum 1% of the pressure test value with a zero leak rate.

Operational Benefits
I-BOP body and internal parts are made of high grade heat treated steel. The I-BOP valve sealing is
achieved through a PTFE ring inserted in the valve. Two I-BOP construction versions are available:
The standard version which is suitable for normal drilling conditions. The standard body inner surface is
surface treated to improve resistance against mud corrosion and maintenance operations.
The H2S trim version which has been designed for H2S environments. Internal parts are made of corrosion
resistant materials matching NACE MR0175 standard (latest edition) and fitted in a standard body.

Retrievable Drop in Check Valve (RDCV)


Product Description
The Retrievable Drop-in Check Valve (RDCV) is used to control back flow from high pressure formations into
the well and through the drill string back to the surface. It also allows for downward fluid circulation within the
drill string. When the back flow is under control, the Drop-in Check Valve can be retrieved using a wire line.
If a kick or back flow starts while tripping out the pipes, it can be controlled with a drill pipe Safety Valve or
Kelly Cock to close the flow thru the drill pipe before reconnecting the Kelly and for pumping the RDCV down
to its landing sub.
By design, the Check Valve is equipped with a self-locking (under down hole pressure) feature.
Main Features
Landing Sub OD ranging from 3-3/8 to 8-1/2"
Check Valve OD sizes ranging from 1-9/32 to 3-7/64
Check Valve ID sizes ranging from 3/8 to 1-11/16
10,000 or 15,000 PSI working pressure (testing pressure 15,000 or 22,500 PSI respectively)
supplied with API or proprietary connections
Other configurations available upon request, subject to engineering department approval.

Operational Benefits
RDCVs body and internal parts are made of high grade heat treated steel. Sealing is achieved through a
metal to metal contact between a ball and a seat.
Two RDCV versions exist to suit all drilling environments:
The standard version which is suitable for normal drilling conditions.
The H2S trim version which has been designed for H2S environments in which the internal parts are made of
corrosion resistant materials matching the NACE MR0175 standard (latest edition), fitted in a standard steel
landing sub.

Non-Mag MWD and LWD

Operational Challenges
Measurement While Drilling (MWD) and Logging While Drilling (LWD) tools are essential to gathering vital
information related to directional drilling and formation evaluation logging.
Typically these measurements include:
type and severity of any vibration down-hole
down-hole temperature
torque and weight-on-bit
formation properties
trajectory of the wellbore during drilling
inclination and magnetic direction
Getting the information quickly without interference to the rig floor is essential to project success. The level of
tool design complexity varies greatly from the more simple collar-based tools to the more sophisticated and
highly resistant nuclear and acoustic subs. Directional drilling service companies have unique tool designs
and usually provide their own material specifications to manufacture these products.

The Solution: MWD and LWD Tools to


Obtain Real Time Data
MWD and LWD are tools and techniques used
to obtain measurements of the wellbore and
convey them to the surface using well logging
tools. MWD and LWD tools are situated in the
bottom-hole assembly (BHA). These tools
transmit partial or complete measurement
results to the surface via drilling mud pulses or
other improved techniques, while the tools are
still in the borehole, which is called "Real Time
Data". Complete measurement results can be
downloaded from LWD tools after they are
back on the rig floor, which is called "Memory
Data". Because these tools rely on the
magnetic field to obtain valuable information
about the wellbore, they can be sensitive to all
types of interference. For this reason Vallourec
manufactures non-mag collars, subs, special
tools, and MWD & LWD housings.

Accessories / Vallourec / 123

Product Performance
Vallourec collar-based non-magnetic drilling products are made from Amagnit 501, a chrome manganese
carbon austenitic alloy. Amagnit 501 is specifically designed for extreme service. This alloy ensures nonmagnetic steel, which is resistant to stress corrosion cracking, providing superior mechanical properties with
low magnetic permeability, excellent machineability and no tendency for
galling. Consistent non-magnetic behavior as well as material that is free of hot
spots is essential in this special alloy steel. Laboratory tests and actual field
use confirm that Amagnit 501 provides very good resistance to stress
corrosion cracking in an aggressive chloride environment. For specific downhole applications where higher mechanical properties are required as can often
be the case with MWD/LWD housings, a high strength corrosion resistant steel
Amagnit 601 as well as other specific client alloys are available upon request.
Operational Benefits
Vallourec has over 20 years of experience manufacturing non-magnetic tools for the drilling industry.
A dedicated plant based in France with state of the art equipment and specialized engineers is able
to offer our clients the tools needed for all directional drilling applications.

Rotary Kelly
The Solution: Rotary Kelly Machined with Precision
Most drilling rigs have replaced the Kelly by a top drive.
Rigs that still use Kellys, however, need them to connect
at surface to the swivel and the top of the drill string
allowing for operating the latter in and out of the well.
The kelly's ability to perform this function is a result of
the superior mechanical properties of the steel and the
specifications according to which it is manufactured.
Machined with precision the Rotary Kelly is a durable
heavy square or hexagonal steel tube built to various
configurations and customer specifications.

Product Performance
Two Kelly designs are available, square and hexagonal, up to 40ft standard and 46ft and 54ft on request.
Features include:
manufactured from AISI 4145H-modified, fully heat-treated alloy
steel with a Brinell hardness range of 285-341, and a minimum
average Charpy impact value of 40 ft/lbs at 70 F
hardness and impact values guaranteed to one inch below the
surface
ends and drive sections, IDs and connections machined and
inspected to API specifications
ultrasonically inspected over the full length and section
shipped in a protective steel-cased scabbard; rathole scabbards
can be provided upon request

Operational Benefits
Vallourec offers a wide range of drill string products and accessories with standard API or proprietary
high-performance connections to meet the most demanding drilling requirements.

Rotary Substitutes (Subs)

The Solution: Rotary Substitutes (Subs)


Subs are generally part of most drill strings and have two main functions:
to crossover connections
to extend the life of a more expensive drill stem item and/or as a disposable component
This means that subs have to be manufactured from selected bars of alloy steel, heat-treated to provide
the strength and toughness required to carry the entire weight of the drill string or to withstand high torque
differentials. Generally, subs exceed API specifications for drill pipe tool joint mechanical properties.

Reduced
Section/Bottleneck Subs

Straight
OD Subs

Bit Sub

Kelly
Saver Sub

Subs are classified into four main categories:


Bit subs or crossover subs are used to connect the drill bit to the first piece of BHA equipment or to
crossover connections in the drill string. Drill bits are manufactured with a pin, making make-up impossible
without a bit sub.
Lift subs or handling subs are used to lift BHA components from the catwalk to the rig floor.
Top drive subs or saver subs serve as the sacrificial element between the drill string and the top drive,
reducing repair and maintenance costs.
Workover subs or circulating subs are used to limit the allowable fluid-circulation rates.

Accessories / Vallourec / 127

Product Performance
Bit subs or crossover subs are manufactured from AISI 4145H-modified alloy, heat-treated to a Brinell

Coating
The Solution: Pipe ID Protection with Internal Plastic Coating
Internal Plastic Coating (IPC) is an epoxy resin that is applied on the ID of drill pipe and heavy weight drill pipe as a
thin layer (0.1 to 0.4 m or 5 to 15 mils). Coating takes place at the end of the manufacturing process. The internal
coating plays a key role in protecting against corrosion and improving the hydraulic efficiency of the drill string,
lowering operational costs of drilling and extending the life of the drill string.
Corrosion related fatigue failures are known to be the biggest cause of fatigue failures for drill pipe, followed by
pure and notch fatigue. While external pits on the drill pipe surface are harmless, since they are immediately
polished off during downhole operation, internal notches can grow and become stress-concentration points.
Internal plastic coating provides a protective barrier against corrosion and extends the useful life of drill pipe. It also
acts as an effective stress coat giving a reliable visible indicator of an over-torqued connection when IPC is missing
from under the pin.
We have identified industry accepted coating suppliers and applicators near all of our manufacturing plants.

Make and Break


The Solution: Save Time & Money with Make and Break
Time is money on the drilling rig. It takes about 10 minutes per joint to break-in pipe at the rig site. A 15,000-foot
drill string (about 500 joints), takes 5,000 minutes (or 83 hours) of rig and crew time. Non-productive time (NPT) can
be avoided by making and breaking connections before they reach the rig floor.
Proper initial make-up is probably the most important factor affecting the life of the tool joint connections. By using
controlled initial factory make-up/break-out drill pipe, galling of the threads can be minimized.

Performance
Vallourecs make-up/break-out is consistently performed using the same procedure for each tool joint, thus
avoiding material handling mishaps and the potential variability of procedure used on different rig sites. Should
galling occur during the process, it can be immediately addressed and repaired at the plant prior to shipping.
Procedure for make-up/break-out:
Joints are finish-machined, inspected and phosphate coated prior to operation.
Threads of each box and pin member are cleaned thoroughly to remove any oil, grease or other matter.
Box and pin threads are coated with drill pipe thread compound.
Joints are made-up hand tight and then power-tightened to 100% of recommended make-up torque and
broken-out to hand-tight condition for three successive make and break cycles.
Joints are finally broken apart, cleaned thoroughly, and inspected to ensure that no galling of the threads
and sealing shoulders has occurred.
Benefits
Factory make-up/break-out at Vallourec provides insurance against damage to drill pipe connections and
reduces NPT on the rig floor.

Thread Protectors
The Solution: Avoid Thread Damage with Thread Protectors
Threads can be subject to damage during transport, storage, and surface handling. These damages can reduce the
life expectancy of the drill string. It is a safe and standard practice to place hard plastic thread protectors on every
connection of drill pipe, BHA and accessories whenever these products are to be transported, stored or submitted
to other surface handling.
Performance
Thread protectors, when properly used, offer a guaranteed thread protection and are available for all standard
oilfield connections. Vallourec products are generally shipped with plastic protectors and are available with
pressed steel protectors.
We also offer cast-steel (with lift bail and certification on request) thread protectors.
Cast-steel thread protectors are ideal for safe handling and protecting swivels, drill collars, tool joints, and
wear subs. These protectors feature API precision machined shoulders and threads.
We offer all standard oilfield size thread protectors including for proprietary connections.
