The improved ease and accuracy of aligning and making up the threaded connections during the drilling and completion process.
premium connections are designed to provide excellent sealability under high-pressure conditions. They have metal-to-metal sealing mechanisms, elastomeric seals, or a combination of both, which minimize the risk of gas or fluid leakage.
Premium connections have high torque capability, enabling efficient power transmission during drilling and casing running operations. This feature helps prevent connection failures and allows for faster and more reliable make-up and break-out.
Threaded connections may be subjected to high levels of friction during make-up and break-out operations. Premium connections often incorporate special surface treatments or coatings that reduce the risk of galling and ensure smooth and consistent torque application.
IMPROVED SEALING CAPABILITY
The ability to provide a more reliable and effective seal between the threaded joints of casing or tubing in oil and gas wells.
ENHANCED TORQUE EFFICIENCY
Premium connections are designed to have a more efficient torque transmission during makeup, making it easier to rotate and tighten the connection with less effort.
Properly gauging Premium Connections is even more critical than gauging the more common API connections, although the process is in almost identical in nature. All features common to Premium Connections can be measured, verified, catalogued and confirmed by a precise, repeatable and correct measuring method utilizing modern gauges. While measuring techniques for Premium Connections are compatible with API measuring, there are techniques and subtitles that are best learned in a “hands-on” classroom environment. Gauge Training Inc offers a specific comprehensive “add-on” Premium Measurement Techniques course in conjunction with our popular Tubing & Casing program.
