introduction need
Introduction: Need


70% to 90% of Failures

Ignored in Well Design!

DEA 151

introduction industry need
Introduction: Industry Need
  • Unknown Performance of Connections
    • Pipe Performance exceeding connection ratings
  • Supply Requirements: Competition
  • Multi-source for meeting schedule requirements

3. Cost: Competition

    • As important as the tubular
    • Failure- Financial Loss
    • Liability- life and property

introduction operator experience
Introduction: Operator Experience

1. Failures are found two ways:

  • Laboratory- Rare for a test to go without performance issue
  • Field -Most costly / HSE implications

2. Operators have:

  • TotallyEliminatedFieldFailures through an integrated Qualification Program
  • Program involves applying what was tested, running per test, and applying within the limits of qualification
  • Independent verification of test results

Connection Reliability

Environment:Test Load Envelope/ cycling, SLE, Failure Points, Temperature

Installation:Torque, RPM, Thread Compound Application, running spec.

Manufacturing(Complete Specifications)

Foundation: Design Related(FEA, ISO 13679, Design Calcs)

  • Design: Test to Dimensional, Makeup, and Load Extremes
  • Database Provides Dimensional specifications.
  • Run Per Specification, within Service Load Envelope

Qualification has Eliminated Failures!
