Delivering well integrity through secure connections ///

From complex deepwater wells to conventional land operations, casing and tubing are essential aspects of wellbore integrity. Tubulars serve as the primary mechanical barrier that prevents flow into the environment or other formations. Meeting the demands of this challenge requires that the casing connections are secure and made up to OEM specifications, to prevent leaks that can result in connection failure when the well goes on production. By achieving a good connection the first time, operators can avoid costly interventions to replace tubing. Furthermore, in the event of an intervention, poor connections present the added risk of not being able to recover production rates to pre-leak levels.
