  • Designed for compatibility and superior performance

  • Increasingly Challenging Drilling Environments

    The continuous development of oil and gas drilling operations has resulted in an increase of extended-reach

    wells and horizontal drilling procedures. These deeper and deviated wells call for drill strings with higher

    torsional yield strength and greater torque capacity than is offered by standard API products.

    Financial risks associated with drilling operations today are pushing oil and gas companies to mitigate drilling

    risks and reduce total drilling costs. This involves improving drilling efficiency and optimizing drilling programs

    by using versatile assets with superior performance capabilities.

    Operational Challenges

    Standard API connections have shown their limitations both in terms of reach and hydraulic efficiency

    for drilling complex wells in challenging environments. Proprietary rotary double shoulder connections

    with API thread forms provide the extra performance capabilities necessary to facilitate drilling in all

    environments including extended reach or ultra-deep wells and deepwater drilling, especially when

    combined with Sour Service or Arctic conditions.

    The Solution

    VAM CDS is a high performance rotary double shoulderconnection that is fully compatible with API and certain other double-shoulder connections available in the market. VAM CDS provides cost efficiencies similar to that of API connections and incorporates 3 major design features:

    API thread shape for compatibility with standard API tool joints

    Internal shoulder for higher torque performance

    User friendly benchmark

    VAM CDS is available in drill pipe sizes from 2-7/8 to 6-5/8OD, including 5-7/8, and in a wide range of steel grades,including sour service, low temperature and high strength.

    VAM CDS

    Designed for compatibility and superior performance

  • Operational Benefits

    Higher torque performance comes standard with VAM CDS.The additional strength provides the higher torque required fordeviated and extended reach wells. VAM CDS offers:

    Higher torsional strength than standard API connections(about 50% more than API)

    Improved hydraulics and annular clearance

    Fully tested intermateability with API connections andcompatibility with other premium connections*

    Extended MU range offering more flexibility for varyingoperational requirements

    Longer service life

    *Please contact your local Vallourec Office to confirm connection compatibility with VAM CDS.

    Significantly higher performance than standard API connections:

    130 ksi standard tool joint

    Higher torsional capacity than standardAPI connections

    Increased allowable tool joint OD wear

    Improved hydraulic performance:

    Allows for using similar ODs but withincreased IDs while increasing torsionalstrength

    Possibility of smaller ODs & larger IDs whilekeeping constant torsional strength

    Improved hydraulics & annular clearance
