Tenaris is expanding its Wedge Series 400™ portfolio with the addition of TenarisHydril Wedge 425™, an integral semi-flush connection, designed for enhanced efficiency in shale applications.
The TenarisHydril Wedge 425™ replaces TORQ® SFW® and joins Tenaris’s series of shale-specific connections with extreme torque and quick installation speeds: TenarisHydril Wedge 463™, TenarisHydril Wedge 441™ and TenarisHydril Wedge 461™.
“We are very excited to introduce the Wedge 425™ connection, a great addition to Tenaris’s portfolio for shales. Developed in response to real needs in the field, it amalgamates the proven performance characteristics of TORQ® SFW® with specific features of TenarisHydril Wedge technology, resulting in an outstanding gas tight connection for shale applications”, says Lucas Pigliacampo, Tenaris Oil & Gas Technologies Vice President.
The TenarisHydril Wedge 425™ connection features a make-up indicator for easy make-up with no need of torque-turn chart. Its intermediate metal-to-metal seal provides exceptional sealability for gas or liquid production and has been evaluated under Tenaris’s Testing Protocol for Multi-Fractured Horizontal Wells, aligned with API TR 5SF, to simulate fracking and production loads.
Like other TenarisHydril Wedge threads, TenarisHydril Wedge 425™ design delivers nearly twice the torque and compression capacity of a traditional semi-flush product, minimizing rejects and re-makeups for faster and more reliable operations.
