VAM®21 delivered superior operational cost savings for customer in North West Shelf gas development project!!

The Operator of a high-profile LNG Project in the North West Shelf (NWS) Australia required high performance, high quality and high reliability OCTG products to ensure the integrity of the wells in the high cost operating environment. NSSMC OCTG products including High-Alloy CRA and High Strength High Collapse Sour Service Grades with State-of-the-Art High Performance Threaded & Coupled(T&C) VAM®21 Connection were selected.

 

Type                   : High Capacity Gas & Condensate Subsea Development Wells
Location              : North West Shelf (NWS) Australia
Well Profile          : Highly Deviated (>80 deg)
Drilling Rig          : Semi-Submersible
Productes            : SM22CR-125 Corrosion Resistant Alloy (CRA)
                              SM95TS High Strength High Collapse Sour Service Grade
                              SM125S-HC High Strength High Collapse Sour Service Grade
                              VAM®21 High Performance T&C Connection

 

The rugged and robust design of VAM®21 enabled the highly sensitive CRA Completion Tubing (up to R3 length) to be run in “Double-Joint Stand” to optimize the running efficiency without jeopardizing the integrity of the well. This delivered a significant 40% efficiency improvement over conventional ‘Single-by-Single’ operation and major rig time and cost savings of >1 Million USD per well.

Following the successful deployment of CRA tubing with VAM®21 in Double-Joint in 2 wells, all the subsequent wells will be completed in the same manner. Same practice will also be applied on the larger tubular size (9-5/8” and 10-3/4” casing) to fully capitalise the benefit.

The Customer has not just achieved the superior operational efficiency with VAM®21 but also set a standard in North West Shelf for the running of 7” CRA Tubing in Double-Joint Stands.
