Offshore staff

RIO DE JANEIRO – Tenaris has extended its range of TenarisHydril premium connection products to include BlueDock connectors, which are designed to operate in offshore and HP/HT environments.

BlueDock connectors draw on TenarisHydril’s proprietary connection design and experience of welding and pipe manufacturing. The new product is available with a metal-to-metal seal especially for high-pressure gas applications (outside diameter of 20-22 in.) and an elastomeric seal throughout the range, which extends 20-36 in.

Features include:

- 100% rating in tension, compression, and bending

- Sealability verified by tests based on ISO 13679 standards

- Up to three anti-rotational keys that prevent buck-off and provide additional support

- High-fatigue performance under bending and/or tension-compression loads.
