    Vallourec launches an innovative drill pipe connection for challenging environments

    Vallourec unveils today VAM® X-Force™, an innovative connection designed to drill in the most challenging environments. The new connection pushes the limits of the existing technologies to reach deeper, more remote hydrocarbon reservoirs.

    Oil and gas companies are continuously looking to mitigate drilling risks and reduce total drilling costs. Vallourec’s new drill pipe connection was designed to achieve higher rates of penetration (ROP) and lower non-productive times (NPT), these are essential parameters to improve efficiency and operational performance of a drilling program.

    By combining the traditional double shoulder design with an innovative thread profile, VAM® X-Force™ demonstrates excellent mechanical, operational and economic performance:

    • Mechanical: by providing the highest torque available in the market and the longest fatigue life without degrading the tensile strength of the connection;
    • Operational: by increasing the speed of make-up, saving time on the rig, without degrading break-out torque;
    • Economic: by maintaining the “easy to use” and robustness characteristics of VAM® Express, while making it easy and cost-efficient to repair.

    VAM® X-Force™ was jointly developed in the R&D centers in Houston (US) and Aulnoye-Aymeries (France), with the support of the engineering and commercial teams across the group.

    Currently in use by major oil and gas operators, VAM® X-Force™ is the next generation of drilling connections.

    Today, Vallourec Tube-Alloy delivers more value than ever. Well coordination guarantees saved time and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

    Oil & gas companies are looking for the most efficient technical solutions to reach deeper wells, ensuring well integrity while cutting costs. Among Vallourec's Global Solutions, well coordination involves the preparation of a complex array of tubular goods, connections, accessories and services at a single point, managing information flow to ensure timely delivery, yard logistics, quality control and synchronized scheduling across the supply chain.

    Vallourec Tube-Alloy delivers a full range of accessories, specifically developed to meet the challenging demands of complex offshore Oil & Gas projects, initially in the Gulf of Mexico, and more recently in south-east Asia, with a newly opened facility in Singapore.

    From the mill to the well: quality and customer intimacy

    While VAM® connections are renowned for their reliability and performance, they are high tech products that must be properly handled, transported, stored, installed and sometimes repaired. "No one knows VAM® like VAM®", says Chris Hebert, sales director, Vallourec Tube-Alloy. "That’s one of the reasons customers have entrusted us to integrate more and more services upstream and downstream from the manufacturing to the running, from the mill to the well, beyond pipes and connections."

    Vallourec Tube-Alloy sought a logistics solution and partnered with Offshore Energy Services to ease some of the challenges across the entire value chain with an integrated solution, from its strategic location in Houma, Louisiana, just an hour away from the biggest offshore bases in the Gulf of Mexico. "Vallourec has developed a new level of customer intimacy," as Todd Davies, account manager at Vallourec Tube-Alloy, explains: "I'm communicating with all our partners, on a daily basis, to coordinate operations: we're talking to end users, OFS, distributors, trucking companies, supply chain groups, completion and drilling engineers, as well as field service and technical support teams. This brings customer intimacy to a whole new level: in barely 7-8 years, we have really grown into well coordination specialists."

    Guaranteeing well integrity and lowering costs

    Chris continues: "We're helping our customers lower their TCO in very concrete ways. We look for hidden costs or costs associated to transportation, transactions, intermediaries, reducing the number of touches for a single part and any redundant operations. Concerning transportation, for example, we have cut down mileage, redrawn routes, optimized truck loads; trucks are spending less time on the road, which means increased safety and reduced transport liability. We've cut our carbon footprint by 30% and achieved a near 50% reduction of transportation costs. For inspections, we've gone from multiple inspections at different sites to a single crew, at a single location, just before final delivery." 

    We have simplified access to products and services. We have simplified access to products and services by managing the coordination off one single desk. In addition, we've improved the utilization of customer inventory: this year alone we have been able to reduce storage goods by 75%. We're probably at $750,000 savings using inventory goods that had been sitting around for about a year."

    Vallourec Tube-Alloy is part of the Global Solutions strategy of Vallourec and is still exploring further possibilities to optimize time, standardize all pre-rig operations and reduce costs.
