Power forward

Improving drilling performance and economics with enhanced drill pipe connections

Our Delta™ drill pipe connection is designed for an evolving market—one where balancing cost and performance is imperative. The connection continues to deliver results in North American land applications, with a recut rate of only 3.6% over a sizable sampling base of more than 40,000 connection inspections.

Make the connection

Improving structural integrity and fatigue performance on offshore installations

We developed a custom version of our XLC-S™ connector for use on the Coelacanth platform—the third-tallest fixed platform in the Gulf of Mexico—that saved operator Walter Oil & Gas more than $1 million per conductor string.
