Tenaris to introduce Wedge Series 400™ at 2020 IADC/SPE Drilling Conference and Exhibition

Tenaris will present the latest additions to its TenarisHydril Wedge technology portfolio at IADC/SPE Drilling Conference and Exhibition at the Galveston Island Convention Center in Texas on March 3-5, booth #523. Specially designed for enhanced efficiency in shale applications, the new TenarisHydril Wedge Series 400™ connections present extreme torque capabilities, quicker installation speeds, and overall robustness for faster and more reliable operations.

“We are excited to introduce TenarisHydril Wedge Series 400™ connections for shale-specific applications, a tangible example of Tenaris’s contribution to the development of unconventional resources for shale plays around the world. This series of TenarisHydril premium connections is engineered to exceed the bending, compression and torque challenges of horizontal wells to ensure safer and more efficient drilling and completion operations,” says Lucas Pigliacampo, Tenaris Vice President Oil & Gas Technologies.

Visitors to the event can see the following Wedge Series 400™ connections:

  • TenarisHydril Wedge 463™ connection: Provides unrivaled robustness and running efficiency, exceptional torque capacity, high fatigue resistance and gas sealability for shale applications.
  • TenarisHydril Wedge 441™ connection: Robust and fast to install, this connection is optimum for slim wells with long laterals due to a combination of superior torque and high clearance comparable to an integral joint.
  • TenarisHydril Wedge 461™ connection: With an extended testing program and consistent field track records, this connection offers simple and fast make-up, great robustness and exceptional torque to manage longer laterals.

Combined with our Rig Direct® service, Wedge Series 400™ connections make up an integral offer for drilling projects in unconventional wells. This begins with the well planning phase, where technical experts optimize product selection to maximize performance while streamlining costs, and continues through supply chain integration: Tenaris manufactures and delivers exactly what its customers need, whenever they need it.
