TenarisHydril Blue Heavy Wall: Designed for deep well and HP/HT applications demanding heavy wall pipe with 100% pressure rated seals and enhanced performance. It has the highest compression ratings for this type of connection and has been successfully certified in accordance with ISO 13679 CAL IV. It continues to be tested under the forthcoming revision of the API RP 5C5 CAL IV protocol.
TenarisHydril Blue Quick Seal: Designed for large OD surface casing that requires a gas-tight seal and fast make-up. It provides stable performance under combined loads to face potential shallow gas. The connection has been successfully tested in accordance with customer requirements following the guidelines of the forthcoming revision of the API RP 5C5 with test series at ambient and elevated temperatures.
The new Blue Series connections come with Dopeless technology which enhances its performance and reliability and provides additional operational, well productivity and HSE benefits.
