High torque technology is requested when rotation of the string is required, like drilling with casing operations, extended reach drilling wells or for shale gas explorations.
For example during liner running, it may be required to rotate the whole string in order to ease the running process or to improve the cementation. In order to do this operation, connection shall be able to sustain in some cases important torque level.
Vallourec develops its own high torque solution to answer to customer challenges.
Different connections have been developed to reach this high torque level:
High torque technology is required for some running operations. Different technologies have been developed by Vallourec to reach the customers requirement in term of high torque needs.
