Ultimate torque capacity for shales

TenarisHydril Wedge 425™ has joined the Wedge Series 400™ portfolio as a high performance connection, designed for extreme torque shale applications where gas sealability is required. With best-in-class torque capacity, the Wedge 425™ connection presents very high galling resistance at extreme torque levels, making it suitable for rotating while running and cementing. Safely withstanding the most demanding shales conditions, its sealability has been validated through Tenaris Testing Protocol for Multi- Fractured Horizontal Wells, including fatigue, frac cycles, and sealability at operating torque, as per API 5C5 Series B CAL IV.
