Vallourec has been making great strides in developing
Sour Service* products for the most challenging sour environments faced by our clients. These new solutions have been successfully deployed worldwide.
Recently a major land rig contractor has purchased Vallourec's new
VM-120 DP S grade drill pipe to drill complex wells in the Sultanate of Oman.
In Brazil, a major offshore service company purchased
VAM® DPR HP™ risers developed in combination with Vallourec's new
VM-95 DP SS+ grade, which exhibit enhanced resistance to sulfide stress cracking in the weld zone.
In the UK, a major international oil company has been using Vallourec's very first string of
VM-120 DP MS grade drill pipe, and has completed its initial development phase successfully.
* "Sour Service" refers to a well environment containing hydrogen sulfide, a gas that can cause drill pipe cracking.
