VAM® SG is a gas-tight expanded box premium connection with increased tension and torque capacity, making it ideal for production casing in the Shale plays. The tapered two-step thread design means that it stabs deep with very low risk of cross-threading. The pin gas-tight metal seal is in front of the mid-torque shoulder, so that it is protected from handling damag​e.  
VAM® SG's 90% te​nsion rating makes it ideal to run full string length as production casing in most Shale applications.​
