HOUSTON – Tenaris will introduce two new TenarisHydril premium connections for deepwater applications at this year’s OTC.

The company says the TenarisHydril Wedge 623 connection is an improved version of the Wedge 523 semi-flush connection design that features an additional external metal-to-metal seal and offering compression ratings (80-86% efficiency) and torque capacity unmatched in an integral connection.

Tenaris’s first connection for riser applications, the Blue Riser, has been designed for use in deepwater top-tensioned risers and high-pressure drilling riser applications.
